To change the lives and mindsets of horsewomen globally. We encourage adventure and personal growth through positive empowerment and support to build a global sisterhood.
Steve Jobs once said: “The people that are crazy enough to believe they can change the world, often do”, and in my heart I truly believe we are doing just that, by creating the greatest, strongest, most genuine form of an international sisterhood.
At one of our very first cowgirl meetings, two gals in a newly formed chapter met for the first time discovered they both had lost daughters, daughters in their early 20’s. Both of these women I knew separately, only one I knew had lost a daughter. At that 40SC Meet & Greet these two women, in a round circle intro, similar to many intros at Cowgirls meetings, shared their pain, each thinking they had a unique past. When learning of each other’s similarities, they embraced and became, at that moment, lifelong friends. I knew instantly 40 Something Cowgirls was much more than a riding club, it was a life changing experience for many. It solidified in me that we were indeed creating a movement.
I am here to tell you we have a membership full of crazy women! Women that believe at this age we are past the drama, past the judging and can have harmony and peace if we commit ourselves to it.
Cowgirls have compassion for each of our stories and look forward to learning and giving of ourselves. We all get it. If we haven’t “been there done that”, perhaps we wanted to or we want to. Perhaps we have been there and it’s sharing that we look for.
All of us as 40SC members respect that we all have something to give but we all are here for something to take as well. It is our time! We have raised the family, we have given and sacrificed and now finally we can do what perhaps we have been waiting to do our entire lives. And with that it is a movement we are creating, dedicated to the cause of oneself by helping each other. Together we can move mountains.
All of us gain from this sisterhood we are creating internationally. Think of it, think of just the gals in one chapter or in your area about to start a chapter and then broaden that globally. Think of the impact, think of what you can do.
As a member you immediately have Cowgirl friends nationwide. Friends that welcome you with open arms and an open heart.
It is a vision. A global sisterhood of horse loving women sharing in the cowgirl spirit!
