Weems is Newton Saddle Club queen

Ashley Weems was crowned the 2012 Newton Saddle Club queen June 9. The queen contest centered on club involvement, an interview with a panel of judges, and a series of judged horsemanship riding events.

Weems, 17, will be a senior at Peabody-Burns High School. She is an active member of the Newton Saddle Club, FFA, KSHA Jr. Member, 4-H, Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America, Student Council Leadership Board, and National Honor Society.

Her educational goals are to attend Kansas State University, compete on the K-State women’s equestrian team, and become a veterinarian with an emphasis in equine sports medicine.

Darren and Annette Weems are her parents. She uses her, Doc’s Bar Tender — AKA Marty or Moo Moo — for many purposes, including roping, ranch sorting, and showing at Newton Saddle Club, KSHA, and 4-H shows.
