65 Year Old Home Movie Proves Wyoming Girls were Always Tough
If you weren't already convinced that Wyoming girls were tough, this 65 year old home movie should do the trick.
There's a YouTube channel that specializes in restoring 8 mm home movies. This share of a couple of Wyoming girls mounting a horse made me laugh out loud and proud at the same time.
According to the description, this gem was taken back in 1954. If I had to guess, I'd say these girls were maybe 2 or 3 years old, yet had no issues getting that horse to do what they wanted. The first girl made it up on the horse (barely) with the help of a really old style folding chair. Second sister followed and joined her sibling for a nice little ride around the corral.
As the father of 7, I wish I could tell you that I'm that trusting of my children's abilities that I would have allowed this, but probably not in a million years.
To give you an idea of what 1954 was like in case you weren't around yet, that was the year when the US tested a hydrogen bomb for the first time at Bikini Atoll and Elvis released his first song "That's Alright" as Wikipedia confirms.
