The Wild Women of the Frontier take time out from a performance to pose for the camera. The Wild Women, a group based on a “Wild Women of the West” group in Arizona, dress up in period costumes to portray many not-so-well-known women of the 1800s and 1900s at parades, rodeos and other events. The women are having under saddle tryouts May 11 in Meriden, northeast of Topeka. (Photos courtesy of Lisa Mooney)
