Lexy Hibbs, Miss Rodeo Washington 2022, is the 23-year-old daughter of Dean and Patty Hibbs of Richland, Washington. Although she calls the Evergreen state home, her residence, located in the southeast portion of the state, consists of a dry desert climate, perfect for farming many of the 300 commodities grown within Washington’s borders.
Lexy is a recent graduate of Washington State University with a Bachelor of Sciences in Viticulture and Enology, the science behind wine making and grape growing, and a minor in Horticulture. Lexy plans on continuing her education and working towards a Master’s Degree in Integrated Plant Sciences following her role as Miss Rodeo Washington. She enjoys applying her education while working as the Viticulturist at Gooseridge Estate Vineyard and Winery located in Benton City Washington, where she oversees the operations of their 2000-acre farm. Washington is the second largest producer of wine grapes in the United States, and Lexy’s career path allows her to be an advocate for continuing to produce a quality crop of wine grapes for years to come.
From the time she threw a leg over her first American Quarter horse at the age of seven, she has had a passion for horses. Over the years, Lexy has competed in numerous equine disciplines including 4H, equestrian vaulting, dressage, jumping and rodeo queen pageants. Her love of agriculture and horses has evolved to create a woman who is an advocate for the sport of rodeo and the western heritage.
Lexy is honored to serve as the ambassador for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and is looking forward to traveling throughout the country representing the 42nd State’s cowboys and cowgirls, committees, stock contractors and fans of the 25 PRCA rodeos held within her boundaries. Promoting rodeo, agriculture and Washington’s diverse history will come naturally as she connects with all she meets.
