Taken in 1941, this photo is of Cowgirl Hall of Fame Honoree, Lucyle Richards, as she rides underneath the belly of her horse, Chief Geronimo in Houston, Texas. As if the trick wasn't impressive enough, Richards also trained this wild horse herself.

Vera McGinnis,  circa 1920, photograph by Bone. Blucher Fitting Book, Volume 18, 1918   Vera McGinnis (1892-1990) was the first cowgirl to wear pants in the arena around 1925. Considering skirts and tight breeches as nuisances, McGinnis created a pair of trousers from a pair of little boys' flannel pants with a zipper on the side. She remarked, "I like to wear them so then I can kick up my heels as I like."
