Born and raised under the shadows of the Teton Mountain Rage, Jordan Lutz is your 2022 Miss Historic Rodeo Jackson Hole. Growing up in Jackson, Wyoming, Jordan is an avid supporter of Wyoming’s agriculture industry. She showed horses in her local 4H club, and has held Rodeo Royalty titles since she was 7 years old. Keeping in tune with her unwavering love for horses, Jordan is pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture at Southern Utah University, which she hopes will aid her dream of opening an Equine Massage and Rehabilitation Therapy center. Jordan is passionate about her horses, as well as the success of Wyoming’s agriculture industries and she plans to use her platform to educate all who will listen on the value of Rodeo, and the impact that losing the sport in her beloved town of Jackson would have on the community’s economy, as well as the impact it would have on the future of agriculture within Teton County itself. Jordan wishes to make Wyoming Pro Rodeo names like Brody Cress, Dusty Tuckness and Amanda Welsh household names to those she is fortunate enough to meet during her travels. When Jordan is not attending school or fulfilling her duties as Miss Historic Rodeo Jackson Hole, she can be found singing the National Anthem at various community events, or enjoying bonfires with her friends and family during the cool summer months the Teton Valley has to offer.
