Wild West Film & Brew Party: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Wild West Film & Brew Party: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

The true story of fast-draws and wild rides, battles with posses, train and bank robberies, a torrid love affair and a new lease on outlaw life in far away Bolivia. It is also a character study of a remarkable friendship between Butch - possibly the most likeable outlaw in frontier history - and his closest associate, the fabled, ever-dangerous Sundance Kid.

Cowgirls of Color

Ladies With Lassos
Four women known as the Cowgirls of Color have found a niche within the rodeo community.

By LINDSAY PEOPLES

The origin story of the Cowgirls of Color, the all-black, all-female rodeo team, is the stuff of inspirational movies. Sandra “Pinky” Dorsey, Selina “Pennie” Brown, Brittaney “Britt Brat” Logan, and Kisha “KB” Bowles are all from the D.C. area. Some of the friends hung out regularly with a group of male cowboys. They supported the guys at riding events around Maryland, but it wasn’t until a grizzled horseman named Dr. Ray Charles Lockamy recruited them to an all-women team that they discovered their mutual love of rodeo.

“The black-cowboy community is incredible, and it’s so fun — especially for someone like me, a tomboy,” says Pennie. “I’m telling you, I partied with them for maybe five years before anyone said anything to me about learning about horses.”

True to sports-movie cliché, Lockamy was a bit of a character. “He was very tough on us,” says KB, “but we ended up so good so fast that we tolerated the yelling and the busting.” After just five months, the team was determined to compete in the Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo, the country’s only touring all-black rodeo competition. The Cowgirls didn’t win the next year, but that didn’t matter — the teammates had found their bliss.

All four say that being cowgirls means constantly confounding expectations. “When I show up in the community on a horse, it’s so dope to experience people’s reactions. The kids are excited because it’s a horse, the women are excited because it’s a black woman, and the men are excited because it’s a black woman,” says Pinky.

And it’s a chance to escape their everyday lives. One of the women even made a day job out of rodeo. Britt Brat, the baby of the group, still works as a member-service rep at Kaiser Permanente but says she’s a secret adrenaline junkie. “Going full speed on a horse? There’s nothing like it.”
