2014 Benton County Fair & Rodeo Queen Kelsey Downs is the daughter of Lance and Kristin Downs of Canby, Oregon. A 2009 graduate of Canby High School, received a transfer degree from Clackamas Community College, and is a student at Oregon State University pursuing a career in hippotherapy, where she can use horses to help individuals with disabilities conquer both physical and mental challenges.

Kelsey was the 2011 Canby Fair & Rodeo Queen and grew up actively involved in her community, raising beef cattle, showing horses, and began sewing at the young age of 8. Her competitive spirit and hard working attitude resulted in her attaining top rankings at the state level in FFA, 4H, and the Oregon High School Equestrian Team organizations.

For the past 2 summers, Kelsey worked for the Venell Feed, a local large scale grass seed business. There Kelsey had the opportunity to expand her skills servicing the machinery and driving everything from combines to quad tracks. Kelsey currently holds the vice-president position for the Physical Therapy Club at OSU.

Kelsey is looking forward to serving the community that she has grown so fond of.
She will be seen on her long-time partner, Sam, a 16 year old Quarter Horse.
