WPRA World Finals | Waco, TX | 11/10 – 11/13

The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) is the oldest women’s sports organization in the country. The Association started in 1948 with a group of Texas ranch women who wanted to add a little color and femininity to the rough-and-tumble sport of rodeo. A major move at the time, 38 women met in a hotel in San Angelo, Texas, on February 28, 1948, to change the way they were being treated in the male-dominated world of rodeo. These women banded together to create the very first professional sports association created solely for women by women – the Girls Rodeo Association (GRA).

National Cowgirl Hall of Fame Induction | Fort Worth, TX | 11/15

Our legendary Honorees, past and present, remind us of the opportunities we can and will continue to explore. The Hall of Fame’s purpose is to honor and promote those women who have made and are making a lasting impact in and around horse culture or within the area broadly construed as Western. The Museum proudly celebrates living and deceased Honorees who represent diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures. Many of our Honorees are nationally and internationally recognized artists or writers, champions and competitive performers, entertainers, ranchers, or trailblazers and pioneers. Over 200 extraordinary women have been inducted into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame since 1975.

The Museum Board of Directors is proud that over the last five years significant progress has been made in identifying and honoring women of color in the Museum’s Hall of Fame. However, more progress is needed. Consequently, the Museum will remain diligent in its efforts to seek out and honor Black, Indigenous, and other women of color, past and present, whose stories have been underrepresented in the history of the West.
