Girls of the West

The Girls of the West story is about our young Rodeo Ambassador, and how she helps promote “the western way of life and the western-type American girl” at our Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo and other events. Meet the Girl of the West:

Georgia StrimenosGeorgia Strimenos2021 Girl of the West2021 Girl of the West, Georgia Strimenos, is the 19-year-old daughter of George and Jenny Strimenos. Since the age of 10, she has been involved in the equine world, competing in 4H, Western and English pleasure, working ranch horse, and gymkhana. She has also served as an ambassador for other Colorado rodeos. Georgia is currently attending Arapahoe Community College pursuing a Communications degree. She plans on continuing her education to one day have a career with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Meanwhile, she will complete her final year of 4H showing horses, alpacas, and holding officer positions in her club. The mission of the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo holds a special place in her heart as her brother is currently serving as an Airborne Ranger in the U.S. Army. She is excited to be part of an 80-year Colorado tradition that gives back to local military and their families as Girl of the West. Georgia rides a paint gelding named Josie.
