Megan Ford was crowned Miss California Rodeo Salinas 2016 on July 21, 2016. She will represent the California Rodeo Salinas at events throughout the state for the next year. Congratulations Megan!
As a fourth generation San Benito County resident, Megan Ford is very passionate about representing her hometown rodeo. The daughter of George and Monica Ford currently attends Gavilan Community College with plans to transfer to the CSU Monterey Bay’s nursing program to become a registered nurse.
In addition to working in the pharmacy at a local hospital and working at a local coffee shop, she still finds time to give riding lessons to young children. Beginning at the age of four, Megan has participated in junior rodeos, ranch rodeos, high school rodeos, and college rodeos for Feather River College in the events of barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying, breakaway roping and team roping. Currently she is a member of the American Cowboy Team Roping Association (ACTRA).
Some of her favorite events to attend are brandings because helping other local ranchers builds a stronger sense of community and family which is something that is very important to Megan. Her other hobbies include fishing, snowboarding, going to the lake and rescuing animals.
