The EQUUS Film & Arts Fest will be celebrating the cowgirl and her horses at the annual
“Art Of The Cowgirl” Fest in Bozeman Montana, June 24 – 27, 2021, at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds. We are excited to join this inspiring cowgirl festival and we are looking forward to embracing an ever-growing, horse loving, Cowgirl audience.
There will be a collection of Western film content, featuring the documentary “COWBOYS – A Documentary Portrait”. Told in the cinematic tradition of classic westerns, “COWBOYS” is a feature-length film that gives viewers the opportunity to ride alongside modern working cowboys on some of America’s largest and most remote cattle ranches. The movie documents the lives of the men and women working on these “big outfit” ranches – some of which are over one million acres – and still require full crews of horseback mounted workers to tend large herds of cattle.
The Art of the Cowgirl Event is a gathering to celebrate cowgirls and their contributions to western lifestyle and culture, to raise funds to support up and coming artists to expand their knowledge and skills via fellowships with master artists in their field.
Please join us for our 2021 Art of the Cowgirl Event as we celebrate, gather and connect western women around horses and western art. We will feature female makers, including master artists, silversmiths, braiders, saddlemakers and horsewomen.
The event will not only provide entertainment and honor women of the west, but also provide fellowships to individuals to further their knowledge with master artists in the trade of choice. The contributions of these cowgirl makers are truly worth celebrating and we look forward to sharing them with you.
