Lena Coulson was crowned Miss California Rodeo Salinas 2017 on July 20, 2017. She will represent the California Rodeo Salinas at events throughout the state for the next year. Congratulations Lena!
Lena Coulson is a proud resident of the Salinas Valley. Her parents, James and Cecilia Coulson of Salinas, will see their daughter off to Cuesta College this coming fall. Lena hopes to later transfer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to study Wine and Viniculture.
Learning to ride horses at an early age considerably shaped her future with the hands on lessons of responsibility and hard work. Lena became a member of NCHA at the age of twelve to successfully compete in reining classes but now has her sights set on barrel racing. She will be competing on the rodeo team for Cuesta College. One of her biggest goals is to eventually qualify for the NFR.
Her membership in 4-H gave her lifelong friends, experience with animals and most of all a knowledge of her agricultural community. Lena cherishes the moments when she can give back to the community. She enjoys volunteering at Dorothy’s Kitchen throughout the year.
