The Challenge

For this challenge we want to see images that are related to the USA West, the Cowboy, Horses, Cattle and Native Americans (First Peoples). This is actually a wide open challenge, meaning we will accept images of the western country, portraits of those people mentioned, Native American arts, buffalo, horses, anything that relates to cowboys (and girls) and Native Americans.

See the definition of cowboys and Indigenous peoples HERE is you are unsure what we will accept or mean.

If you do not have an image of a North American cowboy or Native American, feel free to enter an image that is similar in another country or culture as outlined in the definitions in the LINK above and HERE.

If you are not sure about your image, feel free to bubble mail co-host Jane, but I am sure you will have something to enter – we have a lot of images in our gallery that fit these criteria. . Please note if your image has been used as an example in the challenge, you can still enter it in the challenge!
