Miss Rodeo Mandan
Tatyanna Tibke was crowned Miss Rodeo Mandan 2017, in front of one of the largest rodeo crowds in North Dakota on July 4, 2016, during the Mandan Rodeo Days celebration. Tatyanna also took top honors in the appearance category.
A home grown North Dakotan, Tatyanna grew up on her parents’ (Shawn and Rebecca Tibke) farm outside of Wilton. Tatyanna, 21, was a 2013 honors graduate of Washburn High School and has attended Bismarck State College working towards her associate’s degree in business management. She is currently working as a customer service representative in the banking industry.
As a young girl, she fell in love with horses. By the age of 14, she had earned enough money from working to buy her first American Quarter Horse and now she has three horses of her own. She is currently breaking and training a two-year-old filly.
Tatyanna is motivated by the quote, “while most are dreaming of success, winners wake-up and work hard to achieve it.”
She is an active member with Triple R Horse Club in Edgeley, N.D. , Richardton Saddle Club, and Wing Horse Club. When she is not traveling to rodeos and competing in barrel racing jackpots, Tatyanna enjoys the outdoors, goes for trail rides, spends time with friends and family, and decorates cakes.
Tatyanna is serving as an ambassador for the sport of rodeo and Mandan Rodeo Days in 2016-2017. She is happy to work with rodeo committees, stock contractors, the media and all of the fans who make this sport possible. Click here to download Tatyanna’s autograph sheet.
