2020 and 2021 Queen Lexy Hibbs

Lexy is the 21-year-old daughter of Dean and Patty Hibbs of Richland. She is a graduate of Hanford High School and is currently in her junior year at Washington State University, where she studies viticulture and enology.

Lexy started riding at age eight and competed in dressage, jumping, 4-H and equestrian vaulting. She is a coach at Happy Horse Riding School in Burbank. In her spare time, Lexy enjoys hunting and fishing with her family.

After graduating from WSU Tri-Cities, she plans to obtain her master's degree in horticulture and become a vineyard manager.

As the ambassador of the Benton Franklin Fair and Horse Heaven Round-Up Rodeo, Lexy will travel to over 90 events during her reign throughout the Pacific Northwest, Nevada, Colorado and Canada. Her experiences will include: being introduced on a chuckwagon in Reno, walking across the Calgary Stampede stage, meeting with senators and representatives at the state capitol in Olympia, and local events such as the Rascal Rodeos and school visits hoping to inspire the next generation of rodeo fans and athletes.

Queen Lexy and her horse look forward to seeing you all, August 24-28, 2021 for the Best Week of Summer!
