Powering Up! with Anne Doyle

All Girl Rodeos on the Rise

October 20, 2019

In the early days of rodeoing in the American West, cowgirls competed just as fiercely as cowboys in everything from roping to bronco riding. But women were gradually forced out of the sport, supposedly because it was "too dangerous." But professional "All Girl Rodeo" is making a comeback.  Two of the driving forces behind this growing sport are sisters Nicole and Katie Schrock.  Skilled horsewomen and visionary entrepreneurs, they are the first siblings to both win the title of Miss Rodeo Oregon. If you like cowgirls, horses and "That Western Life," you'll love this episode.
