About Fox Hastings,Eloise.html

In 1914, at age 16, Fox Hastings ran away from home in California and began her career bronc and trick riding for the Irwin Brother’s Wild West Show. By 1924, she was best known among few female bulldoggers with her first competition at the Fort Worth Rodeo. A multi-talented arena cowgirl, Hastings trick rode, bulldogged, and rode saddle bronc. In addition to the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch Wild West and the Irwin Brothers Wild West shows, she bulldogged in more than a dozen other rodeos. She was a courageous competitor. At the Kansas City Roundup, after a short run, she and her horse became entangled after a fall. Her horse fell on her twice after trying to regain its stability. After being carried away, she remarkably got back on a different horse and completed her ride to near perfection.
