Horse Trainer, Stock Contractor, Event Director of Art of the Cowgirl
Raised by horse trainers Curt and Tammy Pate, Mesa Pate was instilled a passion for all animals at a young age. At 17 years young, she became involved in the bucking bull industry and had early success with some very talented animals. Fast-forward to the present, and she is still involved heavily in the bucking bull industry, as well as the reined cow horse industry. Pate and her mother produce Art of the Cowgirl, an annual gathering that celebrates cowgirls and their contributions to the Western lifestyle and culture.
