Paws Up has the magic of a ‘Western Versailles’ in God’s country. Its world of horses serves as a backdrop for the inspired camaraderie that develops between women of determination and distinction.
Many honorees are artists, writers and women who have broken through the glass ceiling of their profession. It’s about the entire cowgirl spirit. Spirit can be transferred to anything a woman does—from working on Wall Street to managing a business to being chief executive of your household. It is a passion to be the best person you can be and to overcome any obstacle that comes your way. I say this every year because I can’t find another way of saying it—an event like the Cowgirl Spring Roundup elevates and renews its participants.
It is such a special time and wonderful experience to see all these women enjoying moving cattle, roping in the arena and photographing the horses, cattle and gorgeous scenery. The food is terrific, and the camaraderie and friendships formed last long after the workshop ends.
