Fast forward to 2015 now the allure and mystery of the West, images, and relics of Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West Show, the untold stories of frontier women, Buffalo Soldiers, Black Cowboys, and even Black Cowgirls set the stage for Have You Heard? Harambee!!! This was Heidi’s ambitious project to bring ridden horses and dance performance to the 16th Street Mall engaging homeless street performers, and introducing inner-city folks to the equine legacy of Colorado. This led Heidi to pursue travels in Senegal, Africa where there is a robust presence of horses supporting and transporting goods and people in rural settings. This is where Heidi got the idea of The African Cowgirl, bright vibrant clothing on and off the horse.
- Be Seen In The Show RingMy focus is on artistic and unusual fashions that can be worn for freestyle performances as well as my signature African Inspired Western Shirt. Introducing ideas and things that can be done with elaborate hairpieces (extensions) as well as the wonderful visual possibilities with African print fabrics. Included of course is how to introduce longer garments to a sensitive horse and how to put on garments that require assistance.
