Miss Gilroy  Rodeo


The Gilroy Rodeo celebrates the tradition of having a dynamic young lady serve as Miss Gilroy Rodeo. Candidates who compete for the coveted title must not only display exceptional horsemanship skills, but speak intelligently and display dignity in all situations. During her reign, Miss Gilroy Rodeo represents the Gilroy Rodeo and our community at events and rodeos throughout California.


Miss Gilroy Rodeo

Brianna McDermott

Brianna McDermott is 18 years old and is from Morgan Hill, California. She went to St. Joseph of Cupertino School and then went to Monte Vista Christian School in Watsonville. Brianna is currently attending CalPoly in San Luis Obispo for Animal Science on the Pre Vet track.


Brianna started riding horses at 10 years old. She has competed in Gymkhana, Barrel racing, cattle sorting, reining and show jumping. She is currently getting more versed in reining cow horses and roping. Growing up, Brianna also played softball and was very invested in hockey with her dad. She never grew up in a rodeo or ranch family, but put many hours in to learn and improve her riding. Rodeo still was something that she was completely in love with, and now she gets to travel to different rodeos and events representing the Gilroy Rodeo. 

Brianna loves spending time with her friends in her free time and riding her horses up in the trails of Morgan Hill and Gilroy whenever she gets the chance to. Brianna is thankful for all of the support she has had from her friends and family along her journey and is so thankful to be able to have won the Miss Gilroy 2023 title.
