Miss Teen Rodeo Minnesota 2022
Summer Joy Hill
Summer Joy Hill, Miss Teen Rodeo Minnesota 2022, is from Minnesota and finishing up her senior year of high school. The opportunity to represent Minnesota is a blessing for Summer as she is excited to not only represent her home state, but also the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), the Miss Rodeo Minnesota Association (MRMNA), and the many sponsors that help support the MRMNA scholarship program.
Now, her life has always been centered around Jesus and horses, which being on the back of a horse has always been more than a hobby, but a lifestyle as life in the saddle began before she could walk. After she was born, her mom would take her for rides and the hoof beats would lull her to sleep. Even at two years of age, she was riding her own horse and being ponied behind her mom on trail rides. A few years down the road, she moved on to competing at local horse shows, gaming, and attending barrel racing events. Fast forward to now, she continues to train her three-year-old Morgan mare with the goal after high school to open an equine youth therapy ministry center in her community with her mom. There she will recuse abused and/or neglected horses, rehabilitate, and then bring children in with similar stories to work with them.
Summer looks forward to the many unique opportunities to travel, meet many incredible people who love rodeo, and promote the sport as Miss Teen Rodeo Minnesota.

Her first interest in horses began at 3 years of age with riding by the time she was just 4 years old.
