Today we’d like to introduce you to Julee Brady.
Julee, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
The past is a present to the future… Our family has always had a respect for our western heritage and equestrian way of life. Being involved in many community events, we saw firsthand how horses and Cowboys and Cowgirls can spark interest and excitement.
The Cowgirls Historical Foundation was created to have an organized group of accomplished equestrians to serve their communities with extensive service hours, education programs, western fashion shows and rodeo performances. For over a decade we have contributed thousands of community service hours focusing on Faith, Family, and Freedom. We perform at venues honoring our Armed Forces and things that are good and praiseworthy.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Since it involves horses, good people, and honorable intentions, we Saddle Up with a smile and Ride On. We often have things that might not go as planned such as inclement weather during a performances, flat tires hauling the horses, injuries, crowded schedules and funding challenges;.. But that is real life and precious lessons can be learned as we stay focused on our goals.
Cowgirls Historical Foundation – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
The Cowgirls Historical Foundation is a 501 c3 non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness and preserving our western and equestrian lifestyle. CHF initiatives are met through creative educational programs, community service, and participation in state and national events. All CHF activities are aimed at education, entertaining, and positively impacting our communities. We are very proud of the generous, kind-hearted, talented, beautiful members of the Cowgirls Historical Foundation.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success brings to mind things to turn out well, financially, proficiency, good fortune, accomplished, to gain one’s end by working hard, experienced, answer the purpose. These are all markers of success, but to enjoy the ride along the way with people that you care about that unselfishly share acts of kindness that linger pleasantly in people’s lives would signify delightful success.
