Mariah Busselman, 16, is highly honored and privileged to represent the Sand Hills Trail Drivers as their 2011-12 queen. She believes this opportunity will improve her public relations skills, promote good horsemanship, and enforce family cohesiveness.

Mariah was born in Beeville, the daughter of Robbie Busselman and Kaylene Garza, and has always been a very active child by participating in numerous activities such as karate, Hermann Sons dance, and basketball. At the age of 11, Mariah discovered her ultimate passion of riding horses and received her first horse on her 12th birthday. Since then, she has been participating in various trail rides and loves her horse, Boot.

Currently, Mariah lives in Gillett with her stepfather, Jim Garza, and her mother, Kaylene Garza.

A junior at Karnes City High School, Mariah is a member of the FFA, and has competed in Creed Speaking and livestock judging. In addition, she has assisted at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo by escorting various schools throughout the exhibits explaining the importance of agriculture. She is a member of the National Junior Honor Society and the National Honor Society. After completing high school, she hopes to continue her education and become a veterinarian in her local area.

Mariah is highly involved in her community. She has assisted the Gillett Volunteer Fire Department by creating tickets and preparing and serving food for the annual benefit. In addition, she has assisted the Santa Rosa trail ride in pushing steers for the benefit roping and assisting the sponsor child on horseback. Mariah very much enjoys helping people.

She displayed her determination, integrity, and endurance by riding into San Antonio for the fourth time. As Queen of the Sand Hills Trail Drivers, Mariah has pledged to assist her fellow riders as needed, “Cowgirl Up” the whole way, and demonstrate a positive attitude in every event.
