2020/2021 Miss Gem State Stampede
Ashley Bennett is the 18-year-old daughter of Greg and Tawnya Bennett. She lives in Hayden, Idaho, with her horses right outside her front door. She is currently attending North Idaho College, and is working towards a degree in medical billing and coding. Aside from that, she works at a local coffee shop, where she has the pleasure of meeting many new people from our community. On the rare occasion when Ashley is not spending time with her horses you will find her doing other things she enjoys like; swimming in the lake, playing volleyball, hiking, and helping others in any way possible. Ashley also devotes time as a volunteer for a local youth group as a small group leader.
She grew up and flourished in 4-H, once her dad convinced her that horses weren’t as scary as she thought they were. Her parents have always supported her with all the different horse activities she wanted to participate in.
