Christa Gillio

Howdy everyone! My name is Christa Gillio, I am 23 years old and currently live in the small mountain town of Pioneer, CA. I enjoy trail riding on my Quarter Horse gelding, going to sorting or challenging myself by riding with some of the best horsemen and women in the area helping shape myself into the horsewoman I aspire to be. Most importantly you can see in many parades and rodeos throughout California as your 2022 Miss Gold Country Pro Rodeo Queen! When I am not in the saddle, I enjoy playing with my Australian Shepherd and fishing with my dad! Here’s to an amazing year to come and many memories to be made! It is a honor to ride as your 2022 Miss Gold Country Pro Rodeo Queen!
