The past year saw, for the first time in Lehi Round-Up history, the cancellation of the annual celebration and rodeo. This year, we are excited to celebrate again, and we kicked off this historical event with the Miss Lehi Round-Up Rodeo Pageant, which was held on Saturday, April 3 at the Lehi arena.
Five amazing contestants were judged on public speaking; Lehi Round-Up, rodeo, and equestrian knowledge; personality; appearance; and horsemanship. At the end of the day, three beautiful and intelligent ladies were selected to represent Lehi and the sport of rodeo. During their reign, they will make appearances at rodeos, parades, and other public events, to provide information about the history of the rodeo, animal welfare, the City of Lehi, and other Lehi Round-Up-related topics.
McKinley Drake, from St. George, Utah, was crowned Miss Lehi Round-Up Rodeo 2021. She is the daughter of Chad and Natalie Drake.
