|The Galloping Gossips Equestrian Square Dance Team formed in 1957, and has performed in rodeos, parades, and other special events throughout Southern California and Arizona. For over 44 years, their motto has been to look good, ride fast, and dazzle the crowds!
This all-women's equestrian team specializes in Square Dance on horseback. In addition to their parades and performances, they perform rodeo flag entries, settle stock for team penning, and participate in area commercials and Gossip calendars.
Square dance moves are performed at a working lope, with the "ladies" dressed in full skirts, and the "gents" in bat wing chaps. Flying lead changes, sliding stops, rollbacks, and back-ups are all part of the team's repertoire. Always, they ride for the enjoyment of the crowd.
The team consists of 8-12 members, all of whom keep their own horses and transportation. Weekly practices last 2-1/2 hours, and keep the team ready to "hit the road" any time.
