Mariah Busselman, Old Chisholm Trail Drivers Queen

Mariah Busselman, the daughter of Robbie Busselman and Kaylene Garza, is honored and privileged to have the opportunity to represent Old Chisholm Trail Drivers as their queen for 2013-14.

Mariah, 18, is a freshman at the University of Houston- Victoria, where she is majoring in biology. A 2013 graduate of Karnes City High School, Mariah is now enjoying college.

As a child, Mariah was very involved with horses and trail rides and has been on many different trail rides in the last eight years.

As a freshman in college, she is currently living in Victoria in a dorm and working at a hometown restaurant called Polaks, while juggling school and work. She plans to graduate from University of Houston-Victoria and transfer to vet school so that she can continue her knowledge to become a veterinarian.

Her hobbies include fishing, hunting, mudding -- when it rains a lot -- and especially riding horses.

As queen of Old Chisholm, Mariah feels that this will advance her public relations skills and assist her in promoting the rides and family cohesiveness while doing what she does best.

As Old Chisholm Queen, she promises to help fellow riders -- if needed -- be at as many events as possible to represent her ride, and “Cowgirl Up” while having a positive attitude in all she does.

Wyatt Rowlands, Old Chisholm Trail Drivers Mascot

Wyatt Rowlands, 10, of Victoria is the 2013 Old Chisholm Trail Drivers Mascot. He is a fifth-grader at Mission Valley Elementary School.

A member of the Victoria County 4-H Club, Wyatt enjoys sports and playing the guitar. He also enjoys rodeos and participating in trail rides.

Wyatt is looking forward to riding into San Antonio to kick off the livestock show and rodeo!

Sheridan Wilson, South Texas Trail Riders Queen

Sheridan Wilson, 18, the daughter of Lisa Wright of Crosby, is the 2014 South Texas Trail Riders Queen.

Born and raised by her mother, Sheridan grew up around horses and spent most of her time out in the barn. She started riding with the South Texas Trail Riders at the age of 12. Sheridan was the 2010 South Texas Trail Riders Mascot.

Aside from trail riding, Sheridan enjoys hunting, fishing, and being in the water. Fresh out of high school, Sheridan will attend Del Mar College for a business degree in the spring and then transfer to Texas A&M University in College Station to become an equine veterinarian.

“I am honored to be the South Texas Trail Riders 2014 Queen,” Sheridan said. “The ride means everything to me and we are kinda just like one big family. We have our good and bad days, but in the end we are all there for each other.”

“I have learned a lot, not only from the people, but you really get to know your horses,” she added. “I hope that one day when I have a family, my kids will enjoy being on this ride just as I do.”

Kimberly Atchley, South Texas Trail Riders Sweetheart

Kimberly Atchley, 28, is this year’s South Texas Trail Riders Sweetheart. A stay-at-home mom, Kimberly has three children, Wyatt (10), Corina (8), and Colton (5).

A member of the South Texas Trail Riders for more than 15 years, Kimberly has ridden horses all her life.

“My daughter is currently Mascot and it is an honor to be Sweetheart and to be able to represent this club alongside her,” Kimberly said.

Kimberly also represented the South Texas Trail Riders as Queen in 2005 and hopes Corina will follow in her footsteps as queen one day.

Kimberly loves spending time with her family, riding horses, team-roping, dancing, music, hunting, fishing, mudding, camouflage, Duck Dynasty, wakeboarding, and the beach.

The South Texas Trail Riders Sweetheart looks forward to seeing y’all at the rodeo!

Corina Romike, South Texas Trail Riders Mascot

Corina Rose Romike, a resident of Orange Grove, is this year’s South Texas Trail Riders Mascot. Corina, 8, is a third-grade student at Orange Grove Elementary School.

She enjoys riding horses, drawing, reading, dancing, playing Legos, and playing with friends.

“I have been riding horses all my life and have been a member of STTR [South Texas Trail Riders] since I was born,” Corina said. “It is an honor to be Mascot.”

As mascot, Corina intends to continue to be a good example, help others, meet new friends, and have fun.

“I would like to follow in my mom’s footsteps and be queen one day,” she said.

Corina is excited to be riding in the grand entry for the first time this year. See y’all at the rodeo!

Kameron Houck, Mesquite Trail Drivers Mascot

Kameron Ruhman Houck, the son of Bryan and Stephanie Houck and the younger brother of Kaylee Houck, is this year’s Mesquite Trail Drivers Mascot.

He is the grandson of Craig and Susan Coleman of La Vernia, Donald and Alice Stevens of Floresville, John and D’Anne Conrad of League City, and Carl and Sandy Houck of San Antonio.

Kameron, 9, is a third-grader at La Vernia Intermediate School. He enjoys school and loves playing football and doing anything outside. One of Kameron’s favorite pastimes is to ride horses. He is a lifelong member of Mesquite Trail Drivers.

Kameron is very honored to be representing Mesquite Hall and all the members as their Mascot for the 2013-14 year.

Kiele Mendoza, Mesquite Trail Drivers Little Miss

Kiele Jae Mendoza is the 2013-14 Little Miss for the Mesquite Trail Drivers. Kiele, 8, is the daughter of Summer and Adrian Trevino and the granddaughter of Lupe and Marie Valdez of Gillett.

A member of Mesquite Trail Drivers for eight years, Kiele’s favorite thing to do is ride her horses. Kiele also became a life member of the San Antonio Livestock Exposition this year.

She enjoys dancing, swimming, and spending time with her family and friends.

Kiele is looking forward to the weeklong trail ride from Watterson Hall to San Antonio and being able to represent her Mesquite family. She is excited to ride her horses, Dillon and Foxy.

Kiele would like to invite everyone out to Mesquite Hall in Adkins Wednesday, Feb. 5, to dance the night away to the “Cactus Country Band.”
