The American cowgirl rides and ropes, understands land and stock and confronts the elements. Celebrate cowgirls both historic and modern with the Spring Roundup at Paws Up – Montana’s premier luxury ranch. Experience educational workshops, trail rides, sporting clays shooting, photography, campfires, music and mingling unlike ever before with the Cowgirl Hall of Fame Honorees. This event is happening April 24-27 and is limited to the first 40 women, ages 18 and older, who register.
Frontier cowgirls broke convention and made countless contributions to western culture by ranching, trail-driving and rodeoing. Modern cowgirls are able to show who’s boss while they master outdoor activities like riding and shooting. Come on over to Montana on invitation from the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame for the ultimate immersion into cowgirl culture. We’re bringing together experts in the American West in order for you to bring home some sharpened skills along with wonderful Montana memories.
National Cowgirl Museum Mission Statement:
“The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors and celebrates women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience, and independence that helped shape the American West, and fosters an appreciation of the ideals and spirit of self-reliance they inspire.”
This is a unique opportunity to go deeper than the diaries, memoirs, letters and journals, by learning first-hand from leading figures of the American West on a wide range of cowgirl activities.
