“Each of us has something good and beautiful to give to the generation that follows, and the part of you that you give, never dies, but lives forever”

Hello rodeo fans!

I am Rori Skellenger and am honored to have been chosen as the 2012 Miss Bakersfield Stampede Days rodeo queen! I am 20 years old, and I am attending Bakersfield College with a major in Agriculture Business, with plans to transfer and major in communications. My career goal is to be a representative of an Equine-related business.

I have been in attendance at the fantastic Stampede Days rodeo since I was just a young girl, and having the opportunity to represent it and the city of Bakersfield is something I take great pride in! Throughout my rein as queen, my goal is to represent my city, my rodeo, and the western way of life to rodeo fans all throughout this great state! Keeping the western spirit alive in America is something that I am very passionate about, I believe we all need to be taken back to our good ole American roots… Rodeo!

When not on the rodeo trail, you will find me involved in many other activities such as Karate, roller-skating, ballet, and grooming dogs. I also enjoy giving back to my community by helping feed the homeless.

I wish to thank the Kern county Sheriffs mounted posse and pageant committee for putting on such a well- run pageant! Not only does the KCSMP put on the pageant, but they help underprivileged children all over the kern county area! They are a fantastic group of men, and I am honored to represent them as well.

Lastly, I wish to invite you all to attend the biggest little rodeo which is held the first weekend in May. Come experience the true western way of life at the Stampede Days rodeo!

Jr Queen 2012


I feel truly blessed to have been crowned the 2012 Junior Miss Bakersfield Stampede Days Rodeo Queen. I have dreamed about running in this prestigious Pageant for a long time and am thankful that I finally got the opportunity to experience such an amazing event. I am excited to be able to travel the State of California and beyond to represent and promote the great City of Bakersfield, the Kern County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse and the Stampede Days Rodeo. I am looking forward to an amazing year with my sister Queens that will be filled with fun and exciting adventures. I can’t wait to meet new friends along the Rodeo trail and to make memories that I know will last a lifetime.

Hello, my name is Cheyenne Campbell and I am 16 years old. I was named after one of the greatest Bull Riders ever, Lane Frost, so the western way of life was born in me. Having grown up in a western lifestyle, my first love has always been horses and everything to do with them. However, I also enjoy motorcycle riding, modeling, snowboarding, tutoring students, community involvement, volunteering and spending time with my family and friends. I am currently a Junior at Norco High School where I am a Varsity Cheerleader and an Executive Committee Member for the FFA. My future plans include going to College to become a large animal veterinarian I am striving towards that goal by continually remaining on the Honor Roll and lettering in Academics.

Rodeo upholds our western heritage and embodies the values our country was built on: honesty, integrity, courage, compassion, faith, freedom, respect, a strong work ethic and patriotism. I am proud to represent the working cowboy and his lifestyle which exemplifies strength of character, sound family values and good common sense. I will work hard to promote the KCSMP and the “Biggest Little Rodeo in California”. I will be a role model for our youth and will wear my crown with grace, integrity and respect. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me in my Rodeo Queening endeavors and the entire pageant team for this amazing opportunity!!!


Happy Trails,
Cheyenne Campbell

Victoria Mae Darling, Miss Stampede Days Rodeo Princess 2012

Princess 2012

“Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway” – John Wayne

The 2012 Stampede Days Rodeo Princess, Victoria Mae Darling, is thrilled at the opportunity to represent “The Biggest Little Rodeo” and the Kern County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse. Victoria is a Bakersfield native and proud to work along side of the Sheriff’s department where her Grandfather served for many many years.

Victoria is a student at Valley Oaks Charter School. When she isn’t helping on the school farm, you can find her in the music room singing in the school choir. She is also a very active member of her 4H club. Although she is involved in several different animal species projects her favorite, of course, is Horse project. Victoria would rather be with her horse than about anywhere else in the world whether it be showing, going on a trail ride or participating in parades with the KCSMP.

Victoria is a busy girl. Besides keeping up with a busy schedule of school work, showing and caring for her animals and attending project meetings, she can be found in the gym working on her gymnastics skills. She also enjoys just being a goofy 10 year old girl. Of course you can’t be a Princess without the occasional shopping trip or visit to the salon for a much needed pedicure. Even cowgirls need pretty toes!

Victoria would like to thank everyone involved with the Stampede Days Rodeo and Pageant for all the hard work they put in to making it such a fantastic experience. She looks forward to spending time with her fellow Royalty representing Bakersfield.

Cameryn's little face lights up every time she puts her crown, sash and buckle on and constantly wants to go to a rodeo. She loves telling everyone she is a Tiny Princess.

Cameryn is very excited to go to as many events as possible with Queen Rori Skellenger, Jr. Queen Cheyenne Campbell, princessVictoria Mae Darling and all the mounted sheriffs posse. She is ready for a great year of rodeo's.
