Reigning as the Arlington Saddle Club Queen this year is 18-year-old Shania Drinkwine of

Condon. She is the daughter of Dave and Sally Drinkwine. She is a

senior at Condon High School, and plans to

attend Blue Mountain

Community College in Pendleton this fall. She will be working toward a degree as a Veterinary Technician and would like to further her education in equine chiropractic and massage therapy.

In her spare time, she enjoys barrel racing, roping, working with her horses and spending time with family and friends. Queen Shania is looking forward to representing the Arlington Saddle Club at their events throughout Oregon and Washington and would like to extend an invitation to join her for an action-packed

weekend at the 67th
