Pink Cowgirl Party Supplies – The Background
Pink Cowgirl Party Supplies are based on Cowgirls, women who work on cattle ranches. Unlike Cowboys, the history of Cowgirls is not well documented. But, in the recent years, National Cowgirl Museum, Hall of Fame and other institutions are making significant efforts and have been gathering and documenting the contributions of Cowgirls.
But in the Old West girls or women used to work as Cowgirls. They had to. Apart from driving cattle up the cattle trails, they used to do considerable ranch work. At that time, men had to go to war. Also, they went on long cattle drives. Then, it was women, who ran the ranches by working as a Cowgirl. Then, there were families who owned small ranches. They could not afford to hire outside laborers. Their wives and daughters and other ladies of the family had to work side by side with men. Thus, they needed to ride horses and perform related tasks and work as Cowgirls.
The sidesaddle was a tool that was used by the Cowgirls to ride horses. Although sidesaddle was impractical for everyday work, using it the Cowgirls were able to ride horses in “respectable” public settings. Earlier, the women used to reach to their destinations either by foot or horse-drawn vehicles. After the Civil War, Charles Goodnight created a western-styled sidesaddle by modifying the design of the traditional English sidesaddle.
The world came to know and admire Cowgirls due to the Wild West Shows. The girls in the show were skilled performers. They demonstrated trick roping, expert marksmanship and riding skills to entertain the audiences around the world. The most famous Cowgirl of the Wild West Shows was Annie Oakley.
During the 1900s, Victorian audiences looked down upon the ladies who wear men’s clothing or bloomers. So, skirts split were created for them that allowed them to compete with the men without hurting the feelings of the audiences. Skirts split were quite popular during the period.
In the early 20th century and later, many movies were made with Cowgirls as the central character making them more popular in the culture. To show the girls riding horses, the movie designers created dresses that were attractive as well as suitable for riding Western saddles. Pink was used widely for dresses and hence the term, “Pink Cowgirl”, was created.
Rodeo competitions made rodeo cowgirls famous. In these competitions as well as Wild West shows, women used to take part in all events. Sometimes they competed against other women, sometimes against men. They were women who thrived on competition and challenge. Fannie Sperry Steele was a famous Pink Cowgirl who performed the same tricks and took the same risks as the men. She used to wear a heavy split skirt that was more restraining than the trousers that the men wore. She used to compete at major rodeos like Cheyenne Frontier Days and Calgary Stampede.
In the 1920s several factors led to changes in rodeo competition for women. After 1925, indoor places like Madison Square Garden were used to stage rodeos. Many of the women’s events were dropped and women were excluded from the men’s events. People did not want to witness women getting killed or seriously injured. Women’s bronc riding was eliminated from rodeo competition after the death of Bonnie McCarroll at the 1929 Pendleton Round-Up.
Today’s cowgirls normally use equipment, clothing and tools same as used by men. The only difference is the design and color, pink being the main color. Today’s cowgirls prefer a flashier look and love being called Pink Cowgirl. They wear jeans, shirts (mostly close-fitting) or T-shirts, boots (generally pink-and-gold riding boots) and hat. They also wear gloves and chaps, as and when required. They do exactly the same jobs as cowboys when they work on a ranch and they dress accordingly. They can pop a bullwhip, gentle a horse, plow a field, use the pistol and paint a watercolor.
Cowgirl has become synonym to courage, independence, willingness to embrace challenges, taking risks, spirit of self-reliance, resilience and appreciation of the ideals. Cowgirls face life head on, take stands, speak up, make no excuses and live by their own lights.
Today, Cowgirl is an attitude. The lives of Cowgirls helped shape the American West. They were women who stepped up, not aside. These fascinating women lived life their way. They pushed frontiers in their own way. They remind us what each woman can be.

Pink Cowgirl Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Pink Cowgirl Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Pink Cowgirl Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Pink Cowgirl Basic Pack. The Pink Cowgirl deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Pink Cowgirl Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Pink Cowgirl Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Pink Cowgirl Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
