There are many others I could give you but you may do that research on your own. If you love the wild west as much as I do, you will eat to your heart's contend. Some others you could throw in would be: Annie Oakley, the James brothers, the Youngers, Belle Star, Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Bob Ford, and Connie Douglas Reeves (who is short 20 years of the era but has an amazing legacy).
Rodeo cowgirls are any cowgirls that do rodeo events which includes: bull riding, bronc riding, roping, barrel racing, rodeo trick riding, goat tying, breakaway, steer wrestling, pole bending, and any other ones I'm not remembering at this time. If you don't rodeo there is still something for you girls.

Theses are the ranch wives, daughters, and bunk house gals that devote their lives to raisin' cattle on the ranch with the use of horses.

These are those farmer's daughters, farmer's wives, and the country woman that are dominant in the Midwest and the Heartland for the most part. These woman devote their lives to cattle, horses, hogs, and pretty much whatever else they can get their hands on. They don't only raise cattle like the ranch cowgirls but they tend to have a broader spectrum of livestock. (Wenya and Yoeli happen to be Farm Cowgirls if you were curious.)
