Presented by Steve Lehl & Chuck Rollins, Crown Point Country
Moving in the early twentieth century from the semi glamorous Wild

among the first women in the United States to achieve valid recognition as
professional athletes. Combining Wild West showmanship with undeniable athletic

Join us for the story of one of those athletes - local legend
Lorena Trickey, who ultimately became a World Champion Cowgirl. Her dad brought
her to Pendleton in 1910 to see her first rodeo and nine years later, she won
her first national championship there, becoming the "World Champion All
Around Horsewoman", just one of many titles she would receive in her
career. And what a career she had! Learn how the champion rodeo rider ended up
working in Hollywood, doing stand in work for Mary Pickford and even drove a
chariot in a Tom Mix movie.

It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
