Miss Turquoise Circuit is the offical ambassador for the Turquoise ProRodeo Circuit of the PRCA.
Katie Ramos has called Flagstaff, Arizona home all 22 years of her life. Many of those years were spent in a barn working on 4-H projects, in an arena on every and any horse she could find, or working ranches with her parents.
As the daughter of a nurse and a police officer Katie had large goals since day one. After an extremely successful 10 years in 4-H with multiple state and reserve championships, along with successes as a youth in the Arizona Appaloosa Association, Katie set her sights on a new goal. She reached this goal by winning the Flagstaff Pro Rodeo Queen title which motivated her to run for Miss Turquoise Circuit 2020. After winning both personality and horsemanship categories yet another goal was reached.
Along with fulfilling her rodeo queen duties to inspire the future of rodeo and agriculture Katie is also a full time student in Flagstaff and works for a cutting horse trainer part time. In her free time she still enjoys going hunting, fishing, and hiking, and competing in local barrel racing jackpots. In the future she plans on transferring to New Mexico State University in the fall of 2020 and running for Miss Rodeo Arizona.
Katie is very thankful for the life she has been blessed with and plans to help give back to the industries that have helped shape her into who she is today.

About Miss Turquoise Circuit
The Miss Turquoise Circuit Pageant selects a young woman to represent the Turquoise Circuit of the PRCA across the country. Her main job is to promote the sport of rodeo and the circuit when she attends a rodeo. She is a horsewoman and works with stock contractors and rodeo committees to help in whatever they need for her to do. This may include visiting schools, being on the radio or television, and of course, working the rodeo. She is a PR rep for the Circuit. The pageant is held annually during the Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo and that is where her reign begins. Most of our titleholders have gone on to win either Miss Rodeo Arizona or Miss Rodeo New Mexico and then compete in the Miss Rodeo America Pageant in Las Vegas. The pageant is under the umbrella of Borderland Queen Enterprises and is a 501(c)3 with a board of directors made up of knowledgeable people from both states. As a fundraiser for our pageant we organize the Borderland Queen Clinic in the early spring each year, which is rated as the #1 Rodeo Queen Clinic in the United States.
