Cowgirl U Trail Trials Teaches and Challenges

The National Cowgirl Museum's Cowgirl University brings a bit of pizzazz to America's favorite equine past time, trail riding, when it hosts a two-day Trial Trials event in the Fort Worth, Texas area at the Rio Paisano Ranch April 18-19.

This fun and educational Cowgirl U event tests the abilities of students and their horses in a natural setting. Spend time with Hall of Fame Honoree Terry Stuart Forst and take part in a trail clinic prior to the trials through a partnership with the American Quarter Horse Association. Both days include a trail ride, with the trail clinic held April 18 and Trail Trials held April 19. Buckles will be awarded. As one past student said, "Trail Trials was a wonderful experience. The clinician and support staff made it enjoyable for all riders no matter their level of skill." Enrollment is limited to 30. Own horse required and no hookups or camping is available. Cost is $115 for National Cowgirl Museum members and $125 for non-members and includes lunch. For more information, go to http://www.cowgirlu.org or call 817.509.8967.

The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors and celebrates women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience, and independence that helped shape the American West, and fosters an appreciation of the ideals and spirit of self-reliance they inspire.

Located at 1720 Gendy Street in Fort Worth's Cultural District, the museum includes interactive exhibit galleries, three theaters, a retail store and a grand rotunda housing the Hall of Fame. The museum is open seven days a week - 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
