2019-2021 WSCA Queen Alyssa Tjosaas
September 2020 Queen’s Message
Happy September everyone!
I cannot believe how quickly August came and went. I hope you all were able to enjoy some shows with your friends and family. And those of you starting school, I hope you all have a wonderful school year! Hopefully, September will provide us with some cooler Fall weather as August was a little bit warm for me.
The court and I are hoping to get together this Fall and see each other soon. We all have not been together since March due to Covid. I am very sad as this month is normally Champ Show month and we will not able to gather at the coliseum. I know for a lot of people this is their favorite weekend of the year. I am hopeful that many of you will be able to make it to the Un-Fair show at Cannon Falls in September to have a fun end of the season show. I know they are working hard to make it a fun show. Due to prior obligations, I am unsure if the court and I will be able to make it to the show.
I encourage you all to attend as many WSCA shows as you can this Fall. Be sure to be registered in WSCA’s online registration so your entries are counted for next year’s Champ Show. It’s a good way to avoid any excess paperwork and do it all from your computer.
I have been keeping busy with my mare, Miss Keisha, and my miniature ponies, Jax & Juan. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to attend the NSBA World Show in Tulsa, OK in August. We are hoping to attend the Pinto World Show in Tulsa, OK in November. I have some big goals for Miss Keisha and I for that show so I will be driving to my trainer’s house every weekend I can to ride her and practice.
I would like to take a minute and brag about my saddle club, Red River Riders of Breckenridge, MN. When I won WSCA Queen my club wanted to put up a sign at our arena featuring me representing as the 2019-2020 WSCA Queen. To my surprise the sign is life size, as you can see in the picture. I am so grateful that my saddle club still supports me so much through my journey as Queen. I am honored to represent them as well as the Western Saddle Club Association as their Ambassador.
