Rooftop Rodeo 2015 Queen Noelle Schleiger


Noelle Schleiger – 2015 Rooftop Rodeo Queen

I am Noelle Schleiger the daughter of Wayne and Debby Schleiger. I am very proud and honored to represent the Rooftop Rodeo and Town of Estes Park as their 2015 Queen. I am a senior at Berthoud High School and Attend Front Range Community College enrolled in the Veterinarian Technology and Research Program. I fell in love with horses when I saw my first rodeo and went on a trail ride in Estes Park. I wanted to learn to ride horses which lead me into taking riding lesson. I began taking lessons when I was 7 at Sun Pony Ranch. I continue to take lessons as I believe learning is lifelong. Romeo, a beautiful Appaloosa, was the first horse I leased. I knew that I had found my passion and horses would be my life.  I am a riding instructor at Sun Pony Ranch and teach the summer horses camp along with caring for the 13 plus horse herd. I have two horses of my own, a Quarter horse, western barrel boy (Avalon), the other an Anglo Arabian (Blitz) I trained in English jumping, and dressage. I am very passionate about horse rescue and the education of proper horse care and treatment; my goal is to run a horse rescue facility and provide the opportunity for children to learn about horses, riding and training. When I’m not with horses, I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, reading, traveling, and cooking. I am excited for this year. I look forward to all the fun, experiences and wonderful people I will meet representing the Rooftop Rodeo, the Rodeo with Altitude.

Estes Park Western Heritage Rooftop Royalty Program

The Royalty program is designed to provide an opportunity for area youth between the ages of 12 and 19 to learn about the sport of rodeo and promote the Rooftop Rodeo while developing their communication skills. Girls and boys involved in the program work behind the scenes and promote the rodeo in Estes Park during rodeo week. In addition, they participate in the rodeo parade and opening ceremonies at the fairground arena each evening during the rodeo.
