The Cowgirls of Color: The First and Only All-Black Female Rodeo Team | Makers

Like most equestrian sports, white men dominate rodeo, but black cowboys have been able to compete in rodeos since the 1940s, although not without facing a lot of discrimination like corrupt scoring.

Over the years, seeing an all-black rodeo team was rare, but to see an all-black female rodeo team was unheard of — until now.

According to The Guardian, there is only black rodeo in the entire country and it still remains almost exclusively male. Each year more and more female contestants come to The Bill Picket rodeo to compete.

About two years ago, a group of illustrious women came together to create the one and only Cowgirls of Color.
