The Cowgirl and The Colts|
(riding) Carolyn Clark and Dixie were the first mascots of the Baltimore Colts
In 1959 Carolyn Clark and her pony Dixie rode into the pages of football history as the first female mascot in professional football. Carolyn was an accomplished horsewoman by the age of ten and daughter of the legendary jockey Willie Clark. She dreamed of starting a riding academy for handicapped children. Her fame as a Baltimore Colt created a touching story of faith, family, friendship and football. This is her story – a look at life in the 1950’s, professional football, horses, and rock and roll as seen through the eyes of a young cowgirl.
