Madison Stoddard is the 17 year old daughter of Shayne and Mary Stoddard of Camano Island, Washington. She has one sibling, and three dogs, three cats, twelve chickens, and her amazing small herd of horses which includes a mini donkey that talks a lot. Madison became Washington State High School Rodeo Association Queen of 2022-2023 in May of 2022. In July she went on to compete at the National High School Finals Rodeo in Gillette, Wyoming. She represented Washington State well by being 3rd highest raffle ticket seller for the year and really enjoyed the experience she had at nationals representing our state.
Madison attends Lincoln Hill High School’s remote program, which lets her have more free time to spend at rodeos and local barrel races throughout her week as well as her job at their family owned store in Stanwood Washington. Madison is a senior this year and has done very well in her remote schooling program as she only has four classes to complete as a senior to graduate. Madison hopes to get her vet tech degree through a online college course next year as she continues to travel to rodeos throughout the states.
Madison loves to camp and hike and enjoys seeing and visiting new places. When she is not on horseback you can find her walking her border collie on one of the local beaches or snowboarding down a mountain in the winter. Madison loves the outdoors and spending time with her loved ones. She also enjoys traveling and promoting the western heritage while doing so.
Madison has been a member of the NHSRA for two years of high school. She competes in the Queen contest, Barrel Racing, and Pole Bending. Outside of High school rodeo, Madison enjoys barrel racing at local jackpots and showing competitively through American Quarter Horse Association, NWBHA, BRN4D. As well as local series such as SCWGA, SVH, FNL, and Broken Wagon Productions Barrel Series.
Being a member of the NHSRA has opened up many opportunities for Madison. She has made many memories and many friendships. The NHSRA has taught me so much in the short period I have been a part of it. I hope that I can continue to spread the knowledge I have learned and encourage all middle school and high school students to join The National High School Rodeo Association. One of Madison’s favorite sayings, by Mathew Fryer- “With every roadblock, a detour is built. With every ending… a new beginning is defined. Embracing challenges makes life interesting… but overcoming it makes life meaningful”.
