Fern Sawyer was an all-around champion cowgirl.  Growing up her father insisted she perform as well as the men if she was to help with the ranch work. She applied this same philosophy to her rodeo career, competing in men’s events in rodeos because she found women’s events too "infrequent and uninspiring." Her proudest moment was  her performance at the 1945 Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo where she claimed first place against a large field of men, becoming the first woman to win the National Cutting Horse championship title.

My uncle was a cowboy and so I can say that this is a dangerous sport. He broke his back and now he can't walk at all. So everybody should be careful!

My grandfather was a cowboy, he competes in different places and he wants me to see him compete. So I witness everything he does, he's having fun yet it seems dangerous every competition he is into. You are being a cowgirl seems more interesting, I can't imagine a girl doing does tricks. I admire how strong you are, I can't imagine myself in a horse or a bull, because I'm full of fear. Thank you for sharing this with us you are such a great inspiration.

These are one of the most popular number ranges in the UK and they are well known for being free to call. The UK does have two other free lines, 0500 and 0808; however 0800 is the most widely recognised.
