The Girls of the West story is about two young Rodeo Ambassadors, and how they help promote “the western way of life and the western-type American girl” at our Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo and other events. Meet the Girls of the West:
Jamie Tyler, the 2016 Aide to the Girl of the West, is the daughter of James and Sylvia Tyler of Hanover, Colorado. Growing up in a small community, Jamie has developed a deep love and passion for horses and the Western way of life. Jamie is currently attending Colorado State University-Pueblo where she is studying Biology and Psychology. After graduating, Jamie plans on continuing her education to become an Occupational Therapist.
Jamie pursued her love for horses by competing in local gymkhanas and becoming a National Little Britches member where she has qualified for the Finals. She has also held many leadership positions throughout school and was Valedictorian of her high school graduating class.
Jamie and her family have attended the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo every summer and have always loved this one of a kind event. Jamie is blessed and honored to raise help and awareness for the local military and their families through the best rodeo in the Nation.
Jamie rides an American Quarter Horse named Jolene who is partially blind.
