Ever since the first Art of the Cowgirl teaser video was aired, I had been intrigued and wanted to attend. Imagine my excitement when those plans met up with good fortune, and Tammy Pate offered me the chance to assist her with the event. Even though it meant a very busy weekend, the Inaugural “Art […]

With a nod of the head, a bucking horse slings himself out of the chute as spurs reach for his shoulders. He takes one big jump to the left, ducks his head and bucks back to the right. The cowboy slumps into the dirt at his feet to the left, before jumping up and retrieving […]

I just sat down on the couch with my kids and watched Netflix’s new original movie Walk. Ride. Rodeo. I have two immediate thoughts to share: 1) Wow, and 2) Forget popcorn – you’re going to need Kleenex for this one. All the Kleenex. The movie portrays the compelling story of rodeo contestant and inspirational speaker, Amberly […]

Jan Swan Wood

When I was a kid, my Dad thought I ought to add goat tying to my rodeo resume’. I didn’t want to, so I did anyway. My practice goat was brought up from west Texas and was the wildest little Angora wether that ever lived. I tied him quite a bit, but his growing horns […]

Jenn Zeller

I’ve been absent for a while, from writing here, and I apologize. Winter here has been horrific, and since I haven’t gotten to ride as much this winter as the last few, I’ve lacked fodder to share with you.

I crossed paths with Melanie Anseth a few years ago when we acquired one of her and her husband’s horses. She has been on my radar ever since as the enigmatic, bright woman she is, and I’ve been even more intrigued to see what she can get done with hats. If you’re in need of […]
