And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

The Montana History Society posted this picture recently. This is Bonnie Gray jumping her horse King Tut at the Los Angeles Roundup.ReplyDelete
From 1922 to 1932, trick rider Bonnie Gray performed in rodeos across the U.S. and Canada, earning the title of World Champion Woman Rider. A woman of varied talents, Gray had a degree in music from the University of Idaho, studied nursing at a military post in Montana during World War I, and became a motion picture stuntwoman in 1932.

I figured that it was some sort of Wild West show.ReplyDelete
Hard to get a horse to jump something like that.
Took a lot of work to make it look easy.
