Hello IHSRA family,
My name is Katie Brackett, and I am the 2023-24 Idaho High School Rodeo Queen. I am the daughter of Gus and Kimberly Brackett, and sister to Will, Belle, and Sarah. I am a senior at Castleford High School, and rodeo with the best district in Idaho, District 6! I compete in girl’s cow cutting, reined cow horse, breakaway and team roping. I was raised on a ranch in Three Creek, Idaho. My siblings and I grew up around horses and cattle, and we could ride before we were potty trained. I have been roping and riding since before I could remember. When I’m not in the arena, you can find me at home in Three Creek working on the ranch, or in Castleford on the basketball and volleyball court. I also compete in several contests in FFA, and raise beef cattle as a market project.
I have been rodeoing with the IHSRA since my freshman year, and have proudly represented as the District 6 High School Rodeo Queen for the past three years, and the Silver State International Rodeo Queen in 2021. I am blessed with the opportunity to compete in Gillette, Wyoming in July. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to represent the Gem State and the rodeo community that I love.
I hope that this year will be one for the books. I can’t wait to make more memories in my final year of high school rodeo, and I’m thankful to be blessed with the great sport of rodeo. My advice to all of you is to enjoy every bit of it! See you down the trail.
