Captain Cowgirl – Happy Trails Publisher, Border Days Parade 2006

The premier issue of Happy Trails rolled off the press in 2002, and was promoted as “The Newspaper Dedicated to Horses, their People and the Western Way of Life.”

It served as a place where horse lovers could promote riding events, writers could tell tell their stories, poets could spin their yarns, and history was retold.

The last print issue hit the stands in the summer of 2008 – the last to be published for silly reasons having to do with time and money.

Alas, gone but not forgotten.
