Thena Mae Farr

Thena Mae used the ranching skills she learned growing up to compete in every rodeo event from barrel racing to bronc riding. But her real fame came as she partnered with Nancy Binford and made history with their creation of the 1947 Tri-State All Girl Rodeo. A pioneer of women’s professional rodeo, Thena Mae served as president of the GRA before retiring to the family ranch where she received recognition for ranching and community service.
