Rebekah Peterson is the daughter of Darren and Summer Joy Peterson. She has two younger siblings, TC & Savannah. She and her family live on a ranch along the Cedar River where they raise Red Angus/Charolais cattle, bison, and horses.
Rebekah competes in barrel racing, pole bending, team roping, and her favorite, cattle cutting. She is active in 4H, Trap and Skeet Club, Branded Youth Group, and runs a home bakery specializing in pies. She can be found on horseback daily, and is excited to study with Ken McNabb Horsemanship after high school! In her free time, she enjoys refinishing furniture.
As NDHSRA Queen, Rebekah wants to get more kids involved in the sport of rodeo. She believes a rodeo queen is first a cowgirl who should be an example of hard work, responsibility, and integrity. While it may be easy to follow the crowd, treating people kindly, and having faith in God and yourself is important. Rebekah’s message is simple… “Ride by Faith”!
