About Art of the Cowgirl
In order to encourage and assist emerging artists of the western genre, Art of the Cowgirl provides a showcase through an annual gathering that celebrates cowgirls and their artistic contributions to the western lifestyle. In so doing, it raises the necessary funds to support emerging artists in expanding their knowledge and skills via fellowships with master artists in their field.
We will feature female makers, including master artists, silversmiths, braiders, saddlemakers, and horsewomen. The event will not only provide entertainment and honor women of the west, but also provide fellowships to individuals to further their knowledge with master artists in the trade of choice. The contributions of these cowgirl makers are truly worth celebrating and we look forward to sharing them with you.

The Art of the Cowgirl Elite Horse Sale is a unique event that will offer a select group of horses that are the product of some of the handiest women in the ranching industry. We selected a small group of horses that showcase an equally talented group of horsewomen, and provide the highest quality prospective mounts for potential buyers. It is our goal to exhibit the kind of horses that have seen a real days work and have been exposed to a variety of situations.
