Angel Clark is 22 years old, born here in Sandpoint, and has lived in Priest River all of her life. She grew up on her family's small ranch learning the ins and outs of raising different livestock, and was a member of the Bear Paw 4-H Club from the time she was 8 until she was 18. She raised and sold pigs, raised and showed rabbits, and of course, raised and showed horses, and attended horse camp for several summers.
A 2015 graduate from Priest River Lamanna High, Angel
spent some time at North Idaho College before moving on into several different jobs including landscaping, barista, and physical therapy assistant, but her heart has always been with her horses and with that in mind, she is currently working as a stable hand at a boarding stable in Coeur d'Alene, allowing her to work with and exercise the horses boarded there.
Angel's love for horses started very young and only grew stronger. When she was 3, all she wanted for her birthday was a 'corn horse'.... a unicorn. So her mom made her a rainbow colored Arabian Unicorn out of her old grey mare and she was in love. Growing up with horses, she learned a lot before ever riding, and at 13 years old, she trained her first horse....which is the mare her mom rides today. She bought her very own first horse when she was 14 and spent a few years trying to fix the neglected state he had been in before finally having to do the right thing and send him on to warmer pain free pastures. She bought the mare she rides today as a yearling , and has done 100% all of the training on her herself. The bond they have is a strong one, as good friends should have. Angel
has dreamed of being Rodeo Royalty since she was a little girl. She is so proud to represent Bonner County as Princess 2019, and hopes to inspire other little girls into working toward their dreams as well.
