Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo

Just to the east of the beautiful Mount Saint Helens, their lives a girl with sparkle in her veins and fire in her soul. Lindsey Paul is the 20 year old daughter of Jason and Dr. Sara Paul of Woodland, Washington and proudly represents the Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo as the 2020 and 2021 Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo Queen. For a girl who resides in a not so western sorta town, the majority of Lindsey’s childhood was spent on the back of a horse. Her passion for riding has taken her far, winning awards for performance competitions including a Reserve World Championship title in 2017 and picking up a rodeo queen title along the way. Lindsey is an exceptional student and will graduate from Lower Columbia College in June of 2020 before transferring to Washington State University Vancouver in the fall. 


As your 2020 and 2021 Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo Queen I am honored that I have the privilege to not only represent a piece of Cowlitz County’s rich heritage but each and everyone of the hard working volunteers and team members that put their lives on hold to create an environment where everyone and anyone is welcomed. I have attended the Thunder Mountain Pro rodeo for each one of the 20 years that I have been alive. Each year I get to enjoy the change in environment as the excitement of rodeo rolls into our quaint little town. No matter who you are or your background the Cowlitz County fair has something for each and everyone of you. But just as fast as it comes it is quick to leave. So remember to cherish every moment and memory just like I will as I travel all around the Pacific Northwest promoting my love for Rodeo and the Cowlitz County fair. I would love for our Rodeo to sell out each night of the three part rodeo event. So if you don’t have any plans that last full weekend in July be sure to come on down and get some dirt on your boots. We would love to see you!
