Annemarie Vogedes, a native Nevadan, is the 22-year-old daughter of Ulrich and Linda Vogedes. Annemarie grew up with horses which instilled in her discipline, work ethic, and ignited a passion for animals at an early age.
Annemarie graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno May 2022 with a Bachelor of Art in Art with an emphasis in digital media and a minor in Journalism. While in college she joined Pi Beta Phi fraternity for women as well as the Nevada Equestrian Team.
Shortly after joining the Nevada Equestrian Team Annemarie became the team president for two consecutive years. Through her college career Annemarie has volunteered with multiple equestrian organizations including the Reno Rodeo and Washoe County 4-H. She was recently invited to teach a 4-H Showmanship clinic and loved that she could share her knowledge with kids in the community. Annemarie encourages students of all ages and backgrounds to pursue their dreams of being around horses.
Annemarie fell in love with the Reno Rodeo on her third birthday, when she rode in the Reno Rodeo parade for the first time on her pony Meggie and won Best Dressed Cowgirl. Almost every year since she has spent her birthday at the Reno Rodeo.
Annemarie hopes to make a difference in public awareness in favor of agricultural and rodeo traditions that are currently threatened by animal rights extremist groups.
Annemarie likes to give back to her community by donating blood on a regular basis. Her favorite past times are riding horses, traveling, photography, fishing, and watching baseball.
