My name is Avalon Irwin and I am the 2020 Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo Queen. I am very lucky to have grown up in Central Oregon, and after moving away for a few years to get my college degree I am so excited to be back doing what I love most, riding and teaching others! My two horses that I will get to share this year’s rodeo season with are Mr. T and Twiggy. Both of them love hitting the trails and getting LOTS of treats. When I am not at a rodeo event you can find me, teaching my preschool students, enjoying a hike with my dog, trail riding, and spending time with friends and family! Some fun facts about me, I am scuba certified, I interned in Spain, and I have been teaching myself French during our recent quarantine.
