The Cowgirl Gathering, coming up November 13-15, 2020, in Fort Worth, Texas, announces its newest partnership with Classic Equine and Rattler Ropes—both divisions of Equibrand Products Group.
This weekend takeover of the historic Fort Worth Stockyards highlights cowgirls’ skills in breakaway roping, team roping and barrel racing, while also showcasing exhilarating and engaging female speakers, and much more.
This inaugural event, believed to become a must-attend celebration for Western women everywhere and a staple of cowgirl culture for years to come, will be an experience never before seen across the Western industry.
“We are creating something where cowgirls from all skill levels and disciplines can gather together and win big money or simply experience the characteristics that embody the modern cowgirl,” APHA Chief Marketing Officer Steven Hayes said. “We are excited to have the support from leading Western brands, Classic Equine and Rattler Ropes, who manufacturer everything from saddle pads, cinches, leg boots to ropes, and roping accessories. Their company values and the people involved align perfectly with The Cowgirl Gathering.”
The Cowgirl Gathering is a celebration in the heart of Fort Worth, designed to showcase spectacular, inspirational women from all walks of life who embody the spirit of the American Cowgirl. Whether you are a competitor or just want to experience the spark of that cowgirl essence, the Cowgirl Gathering is your event.
“Our industry needs more events like The Cowgirl Gathering,” said Equibrand Chief Marketing Officer Billie Bray. “It has a place for our top professionals to compete, but also allows the non-professionals to come and win big! Plus, the speakers at the Essence Exchange portion of the event will open the door for non-competitors to dip their toe into the Western way of life.”
Support from Classic Equine and Rattler Ropes will not only be seen across the competition events throughout the weekend but two of the company’s finest, Billie Bray and Jeye Johnson, will also make an appearance on the Cowboy Channel studios stage during The Kimes Ranch Cowgirl Essence Exchange. Billie will be highlighting the objectives and tactics for modern day sponsorships, while Jeye, along with Debbie Frapp, co-founder of the popular Matters of Influence podcast and MattersOfInfluence.com, will be discussing the keys to communication and conversations in marketing.
