Our Story

Dare To Be A Cowboy was founded by 16 year old & first-generation cowgirl, Hannah Beth. After a talk over dinner with her parents, Hannah wrote a mission statement, made the name, and created the Facebook page. The Facebook page gained hundreds of followers over night.

In the 10 years since that night, Dare To Be A Cowboy has grown and evolved more than Hannah, her family, or anyone close since the beginning could have imagined.

With the help of many volunteers who have so graciously sacrificed their time and resources hours for this organization and our donors who have allowed us to fund our mission, DTBAC has had the ability to implement events and programs to provide resources and opportunities for the next generation of cowboys and cowgirls.

Some notable programs and events include the 2017 Reno Rodeo Experience, the 2022 & 2023 National Finals Rodeo Experience, many granted scholarships (to fund rodeo entry fees, fuel costs, clinic tuitions, etc.), hosting rodeo clinics (2023 Mutton Bustin' Practice, 2016 Dummy Roping Clinic, and more), coaching horsemanship lessons, Cowboy Kids’ Days, and so much more.
