The 2013 Boulder County Fair Queen: Mandie Larson
Mandi Larson is from Erie Colorado, and is the 17 year old daughter of Brian and Dee Larson. She is a junior at Erie High School; she has been a member of 4-H where she participates in the veterinary science program. Mandi loves to run barrels on her one-eyed palomino paint mare named Jenny, in many different jackpots and gymkhanas.
In the year 2011 she won third place in a buckle series called T4 gymkhana. She is now working on training her new horse Hoyt who is a three year old gelding, to be her new barrel horse. Mandi relaxes by reading one of William Shakespeare’s many plays. After high school she plans to go onto college, and major in equine and medical sciences.
Being the Boulder County Queen is a full time job where Mandi attends many clinics learning the grace and expectations of being in the Royalty program. Then she attends many public events throughout the year promoting the Fair. She believes in preserving the “rodeo” heritage and supporting the 4-H program. Mandi is honored to represent the Boulder County Fair and Rodeo, and her Community for this next year.
