Queen, Abi Avery

My name is Abi Avery and I am very proud to be your 2016 Blue Ridge Rodeo Queen.  I attend Blue Ridge High School and will be a junior this fall.  My best friend and riding partner is Nic, and there is nothing we like more than riding and competing. In addition to riding, I volunteer with Grace Lakes Ministries, a therapeutic riding center, and with the children's ministry at Preston Trail Community Church. This fall I will again participate in the PALs program as well as FFA.
