Women’s Western Sports Roundup Fashion Friday: Cedar Creek Cowgirls
Owner and founder of Cedar Creek Cowgirls, Michelle Bilbrey spend the majority of her childhood riding horses as she barrel raced and watched both her brother and father team rope while farming and ranching day to day.
Bilbrey’s inspiration for Cedar Creek Cowgirls was born with the intent to make everyone feel their absolute best on and off the dirt, whether it be long nights in the cow pen or hot summer days in a field.
“Ranching and farming is tough and I felt that every woman ranching deserves a bit of color in her life.”
Michelle and her husband Jim currently own Cedar Creek Land Cattle in Pikeville, Tennessee where they own a cow calf operation along side a stocker operation on over 3,300 acres. The Bilbrey’s are extremely hands on with all of their businesses, however, Michelle’s passion in horses has yet to waiver as they also breed and show renowned cutting horses including two NCHA Horses of the Year.
“I wanted a brand that welcomed everyone with the western cowgirl spirit, to the full blown cowgirls on the farms and ranches everyday as I am now.”
With all different types of cowgirls in mind, the goal of each product created is safety, longevity and wearability which is shown through their ingredient list. No matter which Cedar Creek Cowgirl product you may be using each product excludes gluten, parabens and talc.
One of Cedar Creek Cowgirl’s most unique quality is the names for each palette and shade. Michelle has a strong passion for the sport of cutting and wanted to bring her love for makeup and the western way of life together by honoring some incredible horses. Each palette is full of high quality colors named after iconic equine such as Athena Puddy Cat, Dirty Sally and Gold Diggin’ Felisha.
“I feel like there’s a little cowgirl in everyone of us. I feel like everyone needs and deserves a cheering section. I cheer for everyone. It was just a bad run not a bad day. There’s never a bad day spent with your horse.”
