This curly cowgirl isn’t easy to forget! Karlie Brewer is a multi-faceted, hard working NHS honor student with horse talent to spare.
Karlie began riding at the age of 5, practicing bareback on her neighbor’s Arabian horses. By the time she was 9, she was ready to start 4H, and easily was placed in the Intermediate riding group with much older members. Karlie was a strong competitor in Western Pleasure, sorting, and Gymkhana for 4 years. Many ribbons and several buckles later, she was introduced to the world of rodeo and found her niche.
Karlie has held several rodeo queen titles, including PRCA Roots N Boots Pro Rodeo Princess in 2014, and the Jr. Teen Queen and Teen Queen titles with the GCPRA Copper Dust Stampede Rodeo from 2015-2017. She enjoys talking with the rodeo attendees (particularly the young aspiring cowgirls!), traveling with her family to various rodeo grounds around Arizona, learning the ins and outs of the rodeo industry, and of course, riding and representing for the sport she loves. Karlie has also had the privilege of serving as the mounted mascot for her high school, riding at assemblies, graduation ceremonies, and football games for 3 years as “The Patriot” for American Leadership Academy.
Karlie lives her life to the fullest. She has a deep love for nature and takes time to notice the beauty all around her, from a bright sunset to a delicate butterfly. Karlie likes to spend time training her dog, a poodle named Tasha, who is as curly as she is! Karlie also enjoys running cross country, and completed her first half marathon race with her mother in 2015. A talented singer, writer, and artist, Karlie puts her whole heart into everything she tries.
The oldest of 6 children, Karlie is a true example of kindness, compassion, and service. Karlie’s cheerful disposition and positive attitude draw others to her and she never fails to reach out to those who need it.
After high school, Karlie plans on serving a mission for her church and then attending vet school.
