|Interstate Queen for 2017
Hello! My name is Emma Vine and I am
honored to represent all of you as your
2017 Interstate Queen.
I am the 19-year-old daughter of Randy
and Rachelle Vine and I live in
Bellingham, Washington where I am
currently attending Whatcom
Community College to pursue a degree
in Dental Hygiene. I had a blast
representing Interstate as one of the
2017 Princesses and I can’t wait to see
what the next year as in store as your
I began riding horses at the age of 11
and quickly learned Gaming was my
passion. I have been riding with the
Nooksack Valley Riders and Pattern
Speed Horse Association for six years.
I currently have two horses, a 13-year-
old mare named Mocha and a 4-year-
old gelding named Duke.
What is Interstate all about? Well, in
1957, a challenge was made by Oregon
and answered by Washington. Twenty
of the best horses from Washington
and Oregon met in Portland to settle
the issue of who had the fastest games
horses. The outcome was the birth of
the Interstate Championship Games
Meet. 60 years later the tradition lives
on and we're still riding to win!
I am very excited to have the
opportunity to help carry on the
tradition of the Interstate Games
competition as your 2017 Interstate
Queen. I want to thank everyone for
their love and support over the past
year as your Interstate Princess, I
couldn’t have done it without all of you.
If you have any questions, feel free to
contact me at emma.interstate@gmail.

|2018 PSHA Scholarship Winner Lindsay Sogge
Lindsay is the daughter of Mark and Karina Sogge and has one brother and one sister. They live in
Maple Valley and she will graduate from Tahoma High School. This fall Lindsay plans on attending
Central Washington University where she will pursue a degree in business and continue to compete
on her horse Reno.
Lindsay has been riding all her life and gaming since she was 6 years old. Her horse Reno with
Lindsay a stride broke the PSHA Jr. Flag Record in 2017 and they just currently broke the WAHSET
barrel record of 14.14. She has won many state championships and All Around Championships in her
young life due to the rider that she is and the horses that she has had the opportunity to ride.
A quote from Lindsay’s essay; “The first day I was brought home from the hospital as a newborn, I
was introduced to a horse. I have spent my entire life surrounded by them, the comfort they provide,
and the les-sons they teach. The responsibility that I have learned is due to the never ending
challenge of balancing my personal life, school work, and providing daily needs of my horses.”
|Hi, my name is Lauren Snider and I
have just declared as Washington
State’s 2018 Interstate Princess. I
have been a member of the Nooksack
Valley Riders and the Patterned
Speed Horse Association for 8 years
When I heard that Washington really
needed a Princess I was so excited to
step up and take on this role. I would
not be who I am today if it weren't for
my amazing PSHA family. To me,
being your 2018 Interstate Princess is
my opportunity to give back to all of
you who have done so much for me.
Although I have declared very late in
the year I am going to do my very best
to get out to every region possible
this season to support you all and to
raise money for Interstate. Each club
will be hearing from me soon so we
can schedule which shows I will be
attending. I have already made plans
to attend an Agnew Riders show at
Crosby's arena May 5 and 6 and to
attend the Nooksack Valley Riders
show in Yelm May 26 and 27. I am so
excited for the show season to begin
and to start meeting you all!
I am so thankful for your faith in me
and for your support and I am
honored to represent you as your
2018 Interstate Princess!
Proud to be Representing you,
