Lucille Mullhall First Cowgirl
Lucille Mullhall at 101 Ranch, Oklahoma. According to Will Rogers, the term "cowgirl" was coined for Lucille.
Ms Mullhall was known as the Rodeo Queen, Queen of the Western Prairie, and Queen of the Saddle. She performed in Wild West Shows and you can see why in this old post card: The horse is seated and she's standing!
