The Concrete Cowgirl
After the brilliant ‘Want Show Laundry‘ story, Red Wing Shoes comes with their follow-up, ‘The Concrete Cowgirl’. This time the American footwear brand highlights the unique story of ‘The Concrete Cowgirl’, originally named Erin Brown. She has worked tirelessly to push the conversation in the national equestrian community to provide better access and representation for black riders. Also, she has an impressive 30-plus year career as a competitive equestrian, riding instructor, and community organizer.
The Philadelphia Urban Riding Academy
You might think she’s from the West, but actually, she’s from the North of Philadelphia. She founded the Philadelphia Urban Riding Academy (PURA). PURA, a non-profit, has a powerful mission: To preserve and educate the public on the history and culture of black urban cowboys in the City of Philadelphia through equine-related activities and educational programs.
Equipped In Red Wing Boots
From the manicured lawns of the USEF’s Kentucky headquarters to the rough-hewn cobblestones of her hometown, Brown’s career has been a testament to her adaptability and dedication. Equipped in Red Wing Heritage’s versatile Clara boot, ‘The Concrete Cowgirl’ can stride from a board meeting to the stables with the confidence that her footing is both poised and practical.
She looks stylish, yet cool while riding her horse wearing a pair of Red Wing Shoes. Watch the video to see the story of ‘The Concrete Cowgirl’.
