Tammy Pate is proud to be known as a cowboy’s wife. Born into a Montana ranching family, Tammy grew up with a steer-wrestling father and sisters that “rode from the time we could barely walk.” Her grandmother instilled in her the values of ranching life, a deep respect for nature and the practical skills needed to succeed. Tammy married Curt and together they deepened their horsemanship and developed innovative, gentle and effective stockmanship skills.
Over the years, Tammy discovered yoga and its parallels to horsemanship. She describes yoga as staying balanced in movement and being centered physically and mentally. In horsemanship and in life, these basic yoga principles apply to both the horse and the rider. She has hosted dozens of horsemanship and yoga retreats across the United States and even took a group of women to Mongolia in the summer of 2018. Tammy’s goal in her horsemanship and yoga retreats is to help women gain confidence- confidence in the saddle, but also in their everyday lives.
In 2018, Tammy made her dreams a reality and founded Art of the Cowgirl, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide funding for educational opportunities for emerging western artists. Whether it be a fine art, functional trade or horsemanship, these fellowships will enrich, empower and educate while honoring western heritage. Art of the Cowgirl fellowships seek to remove obstacles such as funding and access for up-and-coming artists, without restriction of age, gender or location.Reserve Your Spot
