I stumbled upon a website. It's one I probably should have visited a long time ago. http://www.americancowgirl.com There are interesting photos and stories. I'm not so interested in the women of current times. You know the ones with all the money, so they can buy the fancy horses, pay the fancy trainers and haul in their big rigs to the show and win. I'm interested in the ladies from the "good ol' days", before my time of course. The ones that quit school before the 8th grade and wanted to grow to be Trick Riders! What an interesting tale that is!
Come with me and check this site out:
