Madison is 20 years old and from the small equestrian town of Valley Center, California. Horses and rodeo have always played a huge role in Madison's life, and as soon as she was old enough, she began volunteering with her local rodeo, the Valley Center Stampede. This led her to represent them for the first time at the Miss Rodeo California 2019 pageant. Madison was actively involved in her high school theatre program and graduated with her Letter in the Arts after serving as President of the Drama Club. Amid all of her rodeo queen duties, she graduated from Palomar College this Spring with two associate degrees and transferred to California State University, San Marcos for the completion of her Bachelor of Science in chemistry. Madison is passionate about mental health and will one day use her education to research and develop treatments for mental illnesses. Currently, Madison works as an equine veterinary assistant and gentles mustangs for the Bureau of Land Management's Trainer Incentive Program. In her free time, Madison enjoys equestrian camping/packing, quilting, baking, horseback-mounted archery, cooking, roping, and trail riding. Madison is incredibly honored to have the privilege of representing her home-state and the California Circuit Finals Rodeo at events across the nation.

Note:  In December, Madison will travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she will compete for the coveted title of Miss Rodeo America!  Please join us in wishing Madison the best of luck!!  To learn more about the Miss Rodeo America Pageant, please visit website / Facebook .

We would like to thank Madison for all of her hard work this year! Madison has been an outstanding ambassador for the sport of professional rodeo and for the State of California! Madison has traveled up and down the State of California, as well as across the nation, attending rodeos, charity events, and several western and agricultural events.  Madison's platform this year is mental health.  Madison's future career goal - to be a pharmaceutical scientist.  She wants to develop and research treatments for mental illnesses. With a grateful heart and an unparalleled enthusiasm, Madison embraces everyone she meets with genuine warmth and graciousness.  Most endearing is her ability to connect with people of any age.  She eagerly shares her gratefulness for the opportunities presented to her.  Through social media, she has taken all of us on her journey making us feel as if we were actually with her.  Her sense of adventure and fun, as well as her professionalism and commitment to her Miss Rodeo California title and responsibilities, make her a true role model.

  • Note:  Madison was with us yesterday (October 2, 2019) for the Press Conference for the 2019 RAM PRCA California Circuit Finals Rodeo and for the kick-off of the 2020 Miss Rodeo California Pageant.  At the press conference, Madison was presented with a proclamation from the City of Lancaster by Drew Mercy - Antelope Valley Fair and Event Center - Board President.  She also introduced the 2020 Miss Rodeo California contestants and had a lot of fun meeting city leaders and event sponsors.

Madison has been very busy this year and has traveled thousands of miles.  Some of the highlights have included attending the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee, Florida, attending the “Daddy of 'em All” - Cheyenne Frontier Days, as well as attending several PRCA California Circuit rodeos including the Red Bluff Round-Up and Lakeside Rodeos.


From Miss Rodeo California Organization:

  • "Representing the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo for the very first time, Madison Wagner found herself on a wild ride when she took home the title of Miss Rodeo California 2019 on October 6, 2018. She competed with 7 other dedicated rodeo queens from all over the State of California and won the categories of Personality, Appearance, Test, and Speech. Madison received a generous variety of sponsored awards, such as an array of Best Ever Pads, beautiful Montana Silversmiths’ jewelry, and a shiny Skyline Silversmiths’ belt buckle. Madison traveled thousands of miles across the Golden State in her Ram 3500 sponsored by Hunter Ram of the West, and found herself flying thousands of miles away to represent her state and circuit at events across the nation.Madison showcased her Miss Rodeo California trophy saddle, sponsored by the California Circuit Finals Rodeo and proudly bearing their logo, at rodeos and parades across the state. Some in-state adventures brought her to events such as the Tournament of Roses Parade, the Red Bluff Round-Up, the Lakeside Rodeo, the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo, the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo, and California Rodeo Salinas. Some out-of-state travels brought her to the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Cattle Convention, the Safari Club International Convention, the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, and Cheyenne Frontier Days. Every time she loaded her equine partner, Jag, into her sponsored Golden West Trailer, she was very thankful for the opportunity to represent the Golden State, the California Circuit Finals Rodeo, and the sport that she loves.Rodeo has always been a major part of Madison’s life. Her parents are both rodeo committee members, and Madison has volunteered with her local rodeo since she was young, receiving a scholarship for her dedication and hard work. She also received a scholarship with the title of Miss Rodeo California 2019 and has funded her education through these awards alone. Madison loves to be an advocate for rodeo and to give back to a sport that pours so much into its community and youth. Madison currently has two associate degrees and is attending California State University, San Marcos to complete a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. She will one day use her education to research treatments for mental illness. She is a proud representative of the great sport of professional rodeo and strives to use her platform to educate and inspire others. She is grateful to the Miss Rodeo California Board for the opportunities they offer young women like her and for their guidance throughout her year as Miss Rodeo California 2019.
