Join The Lone Cowgirl To Help Equine Rescue

If you missed coming to WestFest and the Gene Autry FilmFest, you can still catch The Lone Cowgirl Presents "Oh, You Cowgirl!" in Fallbrook, April 1 at 6pm.

The presentation will be part of a fundraiser for Falcon Ridge Equine Rescue, a non-profit, humane equine organization, sanctuary, rehabilitation and traning center for the horse.

FalconRidge Ranch was founded in 2002 by Nicki Branch and David Lee Archer. Branch rode hunters and jumpers as a teen and was a professional groom for Jimmy Williams and Rob Gage in the 70's. Nicki adopted her first rescue horse, Lucky Nash in 2000. He was an Arabian from New York who lived his entire 5 years of life in a stall inside a dilapidated barn. Focusing on the horses that were the most unwanted, such as blind, swaybacked, or deformed horses, Nicki also found a great need for someone to take on the severely abused, behavior problem or dangerous horses who were faced with being euthanized. She has worked with equine rescues nationwide, including the Equine Protection Network and Equine Rescue, Inc.

"Oh, You Cowgirl!" will be presented at 6pm Friday, April 1 at the Atkins Estate, 4113 N. Mission Road in Fallbrook, CA. For more information about the event, please contact Nicki Branch at 760 216.2016.

How wonderful! I've worked and donated my art to many rescues. Have you received any of my emails?

Hi Sheila!

I don't believe I've seen any emails from you. Do you have a website?

My question was for permission to use some of your wonderful vintage photos as inspiration for paintings. Believe it or not, I have a photo myself in a cowgirl outfit when I was 2.
