Pauline Nesbitt.....

COWGIRL ON THE TEXAS BORDER. Pauline Nesbitt is shown riding the bronc called 'Village Vamp' - 11th Annual Rodeo - Del Rio, Texas - circa 1935. While visiting friends in Gonzales, Texas at the age of about 13 years, Pauline Nesbitt rode her first bronc and, later, became one of the best cowgirl bronc riders in the sport. She began her career as a trick rider at Burwell, Nebraska in 1927. Upon her marriage in 1929 to Jimmy Nesbitt, rodeo clown and contestant, she quit riding broncs and continued trick riding. In 1934, she participated in the Wild Australian Stampede in Melbourne, Australia with Alice Greenough. In 1937 and 1938, she won the trick riding contest in Fort Worth, Texas
