Past the Sash was created with a purpose. We utilize various social media platforms to show a behind the scenes life for a queen. Our goal is to show what happens outside of the parades, appearances and autograph signings. This led to the name "Past the Sash". Danielle found a niche in the rodeo industry from her personal pageant experience, and she saw a gap in the media. Queens would be featured for a year and then their story would be lost, however, they are still working in the industry. Representing an organization requires extensive preparation and the skills women gain through pageants are easily converted into the professional world. Every queen values the title that they represent and Past the Sash highlights that passion from the crown and beyond!

While she considers herself to be a first generation horsewoman, Jackie Scarry has not let that stop her from chasing her dreams. Having been riding horses for nearly 16 years she has taken part in gymkhanas, ridden on the Redding Jr Rodeo Association Drill Team, and has started competing in the Ranch Horse Versatility classes; but recently Jackie has finished a long time goal of hers - holding the title of Miss Rodeo California.
