Heart of The Cowgirl: Mesa Pate Defines a Genre

Cover cowgirl Mesa Pate speaks about what the western lifestyle means to her.

April 15, 2019

“Cowgirl” isn’t just a word; it’s a lifestyle.

For Mesa Pate, the word cowgirl means so much: friendship, strength, history, family, and more. About the word “cowgirl,” she says she “[doesn’t] use that term lightly because of all the women behind [her] that have given that name what it means.”

Getting to spend time with Mesa on-ranch in Wickenburg, Arizona was such a special experience. Watching her rope and ride, it was clear that she was the epitome of cowgirl spirit.

Hear what she had to say in our cover cowgirl interview, created by Ken Amorosano.
