Fair officials are pleased to report that the newly-crowned New Mexico State Fair Queen for 2019 is Alyssa Marable of Dona Ana County.
Alyssa was crowned Saturday September 15th during the coronation event held at the African American Performing Arts Center at EXPO New Mexico. She is currently enrolled full time at New Mexico State University and is studying Equine Science. Alyssa is the daughter of Wade and Annette Marable. Her future goals include owning a ranch for rehabilitated horses. She also is a competitive barrel racer and often participates in rodeos around her hometown. She races on her appendix horse Rebel, who she also trained to walk patterns for the horsemanship portion of the Queen's Contest. What she looks forward to the most about being the State Fair Queen is "the opportunity to be an advocate for the New Mexico State Fair and the rodeo".
