Former Miss Rodeo America, Jordan Tierney, and 2x NFR qualifier, Taylor Santos, are engaged! Jordan said on social media, “Easiest yes of my life! Cheers to the future Mr. and Mrs. Taylor Santos!” while Taylor said, “Jordan Pauline Santos has a nice ring to it! Here’s to forever.”
This couple is no stranger to the rodeo world. They both have a rich history steeped in western heritage.
Due to the global pandemic and cancellation of the Miss Rodeo America 2021 Pageant, Jordan graciously accepted to continue reigning as Miss Rodeo America 2020-2021 which was the first time since the inception of the Miss Rodeo America Pageant that the First Lady of Professional Rodeo reigned for two years.
Taylor qualified for his second National Finals Rodeo in 2021 and it came down to the very last weekend of the season. Santos traveled from Texas to California to Maine before he cinched a spot in the top 15 of the World Standings. The trip was around 3,400 miles. With the help of his brother, Lane Karney, and his friend, Ty Koumonduros, they drove straight through, only stopping for fuel, food, and to let the horses out.
These two have built quite the legacy in the rodeo community on their own and we can’t wait to see what they continue to do as a rodeo power couple.
