Isora DeRacy Young

Young’s love for ranching, horses, and roping made her a pioneer. She was a champion calf roper and barrel racer from a time when women in rodeo were very rare. Young began competing in the early 1930s and was promoted as one of only two cowgirl calf ropers in the world. She followed the rodeo circuit all across the country and aided in the organization of the GRA until she retired to ranching.
