Vision for the future of women in the Western industry: “Whether they’re new to the Western way of life or are embracing their roots, I believe that the future for women in the Western industry is an exciting combination of old customs and new ideas. Women will be the driving force for returning to what was laid out for us by female pioneers…and as we embody those values, we can break stereotypes, educate others, and attract more women to the best way to live: the Cowgirl way of life.”
