WSRRA Rodeo....The Buckaroo Leather Travelin' Roadshow Will be There

The old wooden wagon rubles up to the old west town. The townsfolk stop their work and head over to greet the stranger. The stranger hops down from the wagon, he starts to unlock all the unique compartments and toolbox and starts to say,

"Step right up folks, my name is Buckaroo John. I have here in my good old wagon some fine quality leather horse tack. Step up to feel and smell the quality leather made here in the USA. I have reins, headstalls, bridles, and my newest beauty...... the 100% Mohair Pink Cancer Ribbon Breast Collar to match our 100% mohair Breast Cancer Awareness Cinch.


The Travelin' Buckaroo Roadshow will be in Winnemucca, Nevada for the 2012 WSRRA National Rodeo Finals starting tomorrow, Thursday Nov 1st until Sunday Nov. 4th.


So If you are in the area come on by and "sit a spell"  with Buckaroo John.  He loves to chat with and meet all his customers and fans

The WSRRA, Western States Ranch Rodeo Association, started for one reason to allow the full time and the average day working cowboy, working men and women, to have an opportunity to compete in sanctioned ranch rodeo events.

For years, larger associations have catered to the full-time ranch-hand competitor, leaving a large gap for those who work full time in other professions. By including full time ranch cowboys, smaller ranches and part-time cowboy contenders, the WSRRA will considerably enrich the ranch rodeo sport, bringing in fresh talent, showcasing more skills and encouraging seniors, women and youths to participate in a family atmosphere.

 Only by continuing to expand the opportunities for all ranch rodeo competitors do we ensure that the ranch rodeo heritage will continue for generations to come.

Prairie Rose Henderson...First Sheekaroo Cowgirl

Halloween is around the corner...yes I know time flies!!!! I am sure kids everywhere are making that tough decision.....

What to be for Halloween.....a super hero, princess, cowboy, cowgirl, and the list goes on!!!

I am sure many of you would have chosen a cowgirl!

But what about the true cowgirls of the 1800's. Most women in the 1800's learned to ride out of necessity from helping on the ranch or they would practice their skills out on the range. From a very early age women could stay in the saddle, break a bronc and rope a steer.

In the late 1800's, the younger horsewomen began competing against cowboys in a yearly gathering of herds -which progressed into participating in rodeo's.

One of these young horsewomen was "Prairie" Rose Henderson. She was an exuberant and talented daughter of a Wyoming rancher. Rose rode to Cheyenne to enter a bronc busting contest. Much to her dismay, Rose was told she could not ride in the contest. Rose demanded to see the rules. In the bronc busting rules there was nothing stating that women could not compete. The officials had to let her participate. As you can imagine her entrance into the arena caused quit a stir. Women were spectators...not competitors!!!

Prairie Rose came crashing out of the chute, hanging on to the bronc with all her strength....and lost! But, Rose opened the door for all women to compete in rodeos, so I guess you could say she really did win!

Eventually, Prairie Rose did have wins at the rodeos. Rose was even present a champion award by the Union Pacific Railroad.  She was known as the most flamboyant cowgirl of her time. How about this cowgirl costume for you. In 1918 Prairie Rose entered the Gordon Nebraska rodeo wearing ostrich plumes over her bloomers and a blouse covered with bright sequins.

Prairie Rose competed in Rodeos until her death. In 1932, Prairie Rose rode to a competition and was caught in blizzard. She did not survive. Her body was discovered nine years later. The only way they identified her was by her champion belt buckle.

Prairie Rose Henderson a true American Cowgirl with spirit, courage, determination….not a bad choice for a little girl to choose to dress as for Halloween!

At Buckaroo Leather we celebrate the cowgirl spirit with traditional, sheekaroo and exotic styles of Quality Leather horse tack….Ride American!
