Prairie Rose Henderson a True American Cowgirl
When you say Prairie Rose what do you think of? A flower? I think of a woman of the Wild West, Rose Henderson better known as Prairie Rose.
She made a name for herself first in the Cheyenne Froniter days winning first place in 1899. The first place prize was a $45 saddle.
In addition to preforming at rodeos she joined the Irwin Brothers Wild West Show and dazzled crowds with her daring feats. She also became a fashion sensation designing her own riding clothes. Her classic look was a wide-brimmed hat and knee-length bloomers covered with a skirt and cowboy boots. Her outfits were adorned in feathers and sequins and were not to be overlooked.
I am sure this horsewoman would have been a real fun cowgirl to ride with. She was daring, spirited and determined, a true American Cowgirl.
