|Hail to our new Queen Faith Lencioni
I would just like to congratulate everyone who
competed at Interstate. It was a very exciting and
busy weekend but definitely the highlight of my year.
I’m really looking forward to being your Interstate
Queen this coming year and I can’t wait to represent
the two great organizations WHO and PSHA. The first
thing on my list is to attend the PSHA convention,
which I’m sure, will be fun with all my Washington
friends. After that I will be attending WHO’s
convention. I am looking forward to them both and
the year ahead of me. I hope everyone has a great
October, Happy Halloween!
Interstate Queen Faith
My name is Kortney Todd and I am Washington’s 2013 Interstate princess. I am the 19-year-old granddaughter of
Bob and Sandy Todd. I live in Arlington, Washington and I’m a full time student at Everett Community College
where I’m finishing my Associates degree, after which I plan to continue my education by studying to become a
dental hygienist. I have two horses that I love beyond reason – Faith, my 13-year-old thoroughbred paint mare and
Pumpkin, my 9-year-old quarter horse mare. They are the perfect blend of sugar and spice.
Riding horses has always been a passion of mine. I’m so fortunate to be a part of such a quality organization as
PSHA. I look forward to representing the state of Washington and raising the funds for the incredible show that is
Interstate! Interstate is the one thing that I look forward to every single year. I love the competition, seeing all my
friends, and the excitement everyone brings. The war paint alone is worth a four and a half hour drive.
I am the third generation of games riders in my family. Honestly, my obsession for horses and PSHA would never
have been possible if it weren’t for my two incredible grandparents. As veterans of the former WSHGD, they have
shared their experiences with not only a devotion to horses, but methods of bringing people together whether
through peach fuzzies, having long winded conversations or simply giving advice.
I want to thank everyone for all the support you have given me and I can’t wait to start getting the word out about
Interstate. It’s so great having such wonderful people standing beside me and I am looking forward to a great year!
I will be at some of the fall shows and if I miss you there I look forward to seeing you at the spring and summer
I will also be selling raffle tickets for a beautiful Original Amber Moore headstall starting at our Annual Meeting in

Hello, my name is Rebekah Grant. I am an Oregon
Interstate Princess for 2013. Let me introduce myself. I
am a 16 year old home-schooled high school sophomore
from Harlan, Oregon. I live and work on my family's
Century Ranch where we raise cattle and sheep.
I have ridden since I was born, and my ponies and
horses have always been some of my closest
companions. I am active in my small community and
church, the Lincoln County Mounted Sheriff Posse as a
cadet, and Beef 4-H, raising my 3rd market steer. This
one is from my own herd that I have been building.
I competed in OH-SET last year for Philomath High
School, making it to state and receiving the silver medal
in Individual flags. I was high point Jr. and rookie of the
year. I am taking a break from it this year so I can
concentrate on my new role.
I'm very excited about this year and representing
Interstate Games as an Oregon Princess. It is such a
great organization to be a part of. Interstate 2012 was
my first Interstate as a competitor. My wonder horse
"Beau", not only got me there, but also carried me to
several awards including the championship in Jr. pole
bending. What a rush!
Competing at Interstate has been a lifelong dream of
mine, but winning the buckle was even more then my
wildest dreams. I want to thank everyone for the support
and encouragement that I received my rookie year there,
both from Oregon and Washington.
On October 13th, 2012, I was able to make my first
Interstate Princess run-in at my home town rough stock
rodeo. It was truly amazing racing around the arena in
front of the crowd at full speed. We are looking forward
to the rest of the year! I am thankful for the
encouragement and donations I have received and will
receive towards helping to make Interstate Games 2013
Good Luck to everyone! Ride hard and fast!
Your 2013 Oregon Princess Rebekah Grant
Hello, I am one of your 2013 Interstate Princess Rebeckah Puppo. I am 18 years old and the
daughter of Michael and Sheri Puppo. I am a senior at Sam Barlow High School in Gresham,
Oregon. I will be attending Oregon State University in the fall to pursue a degree in
I started riding when I was five years old and began competing when I was six, and I
instantly fell in love with the sport. Growing up my biggest dream was to become a rodeo
princess, just like all of the beautiful girls racing around the arena at full speed. This is my
fourth year as a varsity member on the Sam Barlow OHSET team in which I have also
competed at state each year. This year will also be my 9th and final year in Clackamas
I will be competing this year with my 19 year old horse “Jet”. I am enjoying my duties of
being a 2013 Interstate Princess! I want to thank everyone for the support and donations I
have received already and I can’t wait to see how much more is yet to come! I am very
excited to represent such an amazing association and hope that I can be a good role model to
young riders and aspiring princesses.
