This exquisite image by photographer Audrey Hall struck the COWGIRL team as a perfect illustration of our “Social Distance The Cowgirl Way” cover feature.

At once, it shows the trepidation of an unknown future as expressed on the face of horsewoman and actress Cassidy Freeman with the freedom and distance afforded by those who appreciate horses and the wide open spaces they provide adventurous riders.

Shot in the mountains of Montana outside Bozeman as part of the November/December 2017 cover feature on Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman, the composition, scenery, horses, and cowgirl show the strength and isolation we wanted to express in this firsthand commentary on the pandemic crisis that is facing our nation and world at this very moment.

We feel it is a message of hope and unity in these trying times that tests the mettle of all people as we struggle to gain our footing in an uncertain future.

Protect yourself. Protect your family. Protect others.
