It is time to meet your 2019 Jr Miss Ozark Rodeo Association, Jacie Jost! Jacie is excited to get the 2019 season started and to make new friends! Keep reading to learn more about her!
My name is Jacie Jost and I am honored to be your 2019 JR Miss ORA. I am in the 5 th grade at Cuba Middle School where I am involved in several after school activities such as Robotics, Middle School Milers and Book Club. I also play on the 5 th grade girls traveling basketball team where I am dedicated to my team.
I am from Owensville Missouri where I help my family farm cattle and horses. My family owns a pony ride business where I spend a lot of time helping them in the summer. My love for horses started when I was really young and my Uncle Jasper got me my first pony named Hollywood which I still have today. My Uncle Jasper took me to my first fun show and I had so much fun. I enjoy trail riding with my family and friends. My interest for rodeo comes from my Dad he rode bulls and we were at a rodeos a lot. I always love watching the barrel racing and bull riding. My interest in rodeo queening came from being at a rodeo with my mom and dad and seeing all the queens it made me want to try it. The next year I went to my first
pageant and loved it!
I am very excited to make new friends and memories. I am looking forward to
serving as your 2019 Jr Miss ORA and what the season brings.

It's time to meet our next titleholder, Miss Teen Ozark Rodeo Association, Alexis Mantonya! We are very excited to work with Alexis this year and hope you all take the time to get to know a little bit about her!
Hey there everyone!
My name is Alexis Mantonya and I am so very honored to be your new 2019 Miss Teen ORA.
I am currently a junior at Warsaw High School taking as many college classes as possible and I’m very involved in FFA as an officer. While going to school and maintaining my grades I also maintain a job. My future plans are to attend State Fair Community College and do my prerequisite classes to become a Paramedic.
I was born and raised in Warsaw, Missouri where I am proud to call my home. Though we are small this small town has a lot of fight.
I started with my horse passion when I was just six years old when I started taking lessons, I received a horse for my ninth birthday and started my rodeo queening career that following year. Rodeo has a very special place in my heart that I try to share with every person I meet. I am looking forward to the adventures this year is going to bring and the people I am going to meet.
With love, Alexis

A new year means new titleholders and I would love to introduce to you to each of them individually! First we are starting off with our new Miss Ozark Rodeo Association 2019, Haley Linder! Haley has a big year in store for her as she will be the first Miss ORA to represent the Ozark Rodeo Association at the Miss Rodeo USA Pageant in January 2020!
I am Haley Linder and I am honored to be your Miss Ozark Rodeo Association 2019!
I am currently a Master’s student at the University of Missouri where I am studying dairy calf nutrition and development. I graduated in May 2018 with my Bachelor’s in Animal Sciences from Mizzou as well. After my Master’s, I plan to pursue a PhD with a career goal of becoming a college professor. I am passionate about the dairy industry and agriculture and hope to better the field through education and research.
While I call Columbia, Missouri my home now, I am originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I have been a horse lover my whole life and rode hunter jumpers growing up. My first rodeo wasn’t even until college but I am certainly glad that Gabrielle Cuttler, Miss ORA 2017 brought me along to one! I fell in love with this thrilling sport and the people involved in it. Rodeo wasn’t a part of the first 21 years of my life but now it will forever be! It was because of that first rodeo that I was inspired to compete for the title of Miss ORA 2018. I won first runner up and while was disappointed, was reminded that God has plans for us as a month later received an internship offer in CO for the summer. Still, from that first pageant I had so many takeaways from life lessons to new friends to my first ever horse. Being Miss ORA was a goal of mine as I hope to use my title to serve the rodeo and general community and promote my platform of “Back in the Saddle”. My platform is based off my own personal experiences of overcoming setbacks, staying positive, and having faith in God.
I cannot wait to get this year started and see what it brings! I am so excited to serve as your Miss ORA 2019.
Stay tuned to meet Miss Teen ORA 2019, Alexis Mantonya!
