Silver Spur Rodeo Royalty
2016 Yuma Jaycee’s Silver Spur Queen and Teen Queen.
Silver Spur Rodeo Queen Amberly Hardt’s biggest dream came true on February 13th, 2016 as she garnered the coveted title of Yuma Jaycees Silver Spur Rodeo Queen. Amberly is the 20 year old daughter of Trae Hardt and April Taylor, of Yuma, Arizona. She is beyond excited with this opportunity; she has the chance to not only better herself, but to reach out to rodeo fans both young and old. She believes the love for rodeo starts at a young age, “We all remember that little girl behind the arena fence that’s jumping up and down waving as you pass doing your hot lap around the arena, and I was once that little girl.” This small town girl has had a passion for horses since the young age of three, when she received her first horse; an adopted mustang named Sheepo. She hopes to gain the knowledge and make connections that may benefit herself or others for future success in life’s journey. When not traveling to rodeos around the state, Amberly and her palomino mare, Tyler, compete in barrel racing, pole bending, and goat tying through the Yuma Progressive Barrel Racing Association, a local organization in her hometown.
Silver Spur Rodeo Teen Queen Megan Hardt is the daughter of April Taylor and Trae Hardt. 18 year old Megan is involved in livestock projects to take to the Yuma County Fair, as an active member of the Cibola FFA with a production steer project, and as a member of the Yuma Valley Achievers 4-H club, with a market goat project. Megan also competes in YPBRA, a local group that sponsors barrel racing, pole bending, and goat tying. She plans on attending Arizona Western College beginning next fall to complete her general electives before transferring to the University of Arizona to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science.
