Queen Kylie Willis

Hello rodeo fans, my name are Kylie Willis. I am a 17 year old junior at Enterprise High School. I live with my family on our 150 acre ranch outside Enterprise.

I am involved in volleyball, basketball and softball.

I am currently the Student Body secretary, the FFA secretary, a member of the National Honor Society, and a member of the prom committee.

In my spare time, I like to snowboard, go tubing at the lake, spend time with friends, and of course ride horses.


I have been a member of the Chief Joseph Days Tuckerettes for the last 4 years.

I ride a 12 year old bay gelding quarter horse named Sam.

I am looking forward to being a member of the Chief Joseph Days Rodeo court this summer, getting to travel to all the rodeos with my partner in crime, Emily Ketscher.

Hope to see you all at the 67th Annual Chief Joseph Days Rodeo.

Princess Emily Ketscher

Hello, I’m Emily Ketscher. I am a 15-year-old sophomore at Enterprise High School. My family owns a ranch out on the Zumwalt, which is where I fell in love with horses and riding. I was born and raised here, and I’ve been riding as long as I can remember.

When I started horse 4-H as a fourth grader, I got the palomino that I am riding this year, Squeeky, my 22-year-old quarter-horse mare and seven year partner shares my need for speed. I couldn’t think of a better teammate to share this Chief Joseph Days court experience with.

In addition to my horseback riding, I love to read, listen to music and play basketball. I also play volleyball and am involved in many other intra- and extra-curricular activities. I am a member of the Enterprise Christian Church.

And for the past three years, I have led the 180 club, a Christian group, at my school.  Since my freshman year, I have been a member of the Enterprise chapter of Future Career and Community Leaders of America. I also joined the Enterprise FFA chapter as a freshman and I’m serving on the officer team as the current website technician this year.

I have a small cow herd and through FFA I am able to show and sell the steer that I raise. I have been my class treasurer for the past two years and have maintained a 4.00 GPA all through my Junior and High school career so far.

I am excited to be a part of the Chief Joseph Days royalty, representing our county and this great rodeo. I look forward to meeting you all at the rodeo! Happy trails.
