Western Saddle Club Association (WSCA) Queen’s Contest
McKenzie Cselovszki from Sleepy Eye was crowned Ms. Games at the WSCA Champ show on Sunday, Sept. 22. McKenzie competed earlier in August with contest components of a written exam of WSCA rules, personal interview, and a public speaking portion that included a prepared speech and an impromptu question. On Wednesday, Sept. 18, she continued the process with a judged salute ride and gaming events. McKenzie and her horse, Chrome Kirk N Cash, ran Poles, Key, and Barrels. She had three clean and fast runs, which resulted in her later being crowned Ms. Games. McKenzie and the rest of the court will travel and attend numerous horse related events throughout the next year.
