Courtney Otto
Born and raised in Marshall, MN, Courtney Otto grew up with a life that revolved around horses.  She started competing at local horse shows at the age of three.  At age eight, she began Little Britches Rodeo, and then later competed in both junior high and high school rodeos.  Recently, Courtney completed her Bachelor of Science degree in both Biology and Business Economics from South Dakota State University. While completing her degree, she had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant for the Equine Reproductive Management course and competed in rodeos at the intercollegiate level. 

Currently, Courtney competes in amateur and professional rodeos in the barrel racing and breakaway roping events.  In addition to a successful rodeo career, she hopes to pursue a career in business finance, and one day raise a family of her own, giving them the same opportunity that she was given - to grow up in a family with strong western roots and a passion for rodeo.  Courtney looks forward to traveling, meeting new people, and promoting the sport of rodeo as your Miss Rodeo Minnesota.
