Description
A cowgirl swings on a corral gate for this Malibu Remuda publicity shot. The Malibu Remuda, a two-day celebration of Malibu's culture and heritage held September 27-28, 1947, took its name from the corral that vaqueros would use to select a horse for the day. The event featured this impressive display of horses (over 900 riders) on both days, in addition to the circus, a "western bathing beauty contest," aquatic races, and an air show. The Malibu Remuda was sponsored by the Malibu post of the American Legion, and proceeds were intended to fund the building of a local post clubhouse. Although it was billed as the first of an annual event, the tradition would fail to catch on.
