HAPPY BOTTOM RIDING CLUB®
(Restaurant, bar, casino)
The Happy Bottom Riding Club, founded by Pancho Barnes, was located at what is now Edwards Air Force Base in California. Club members included heads of state, high ranking military, actors, actresses, writers and artists. Members could fly into her FAA-approved airport, attend rodeos at her championship stadium, ride horses, dance, eat, drink and then decide to do it all over again by checking into her hotel. During the height of the Happy Bottom Riding Club's success, there were over 9,000 members worldwide.
The Happy Bottom Riding Club and Pancho Barnes were dramatized as part of the Academy Award-winning classic film, The Right Stuff.
Pancho Barnes (1901-1975) is considered by many to be one of the 20th century's greatest American characters. During her lifetime, Pancho was renowned for her individuality, outsized personality, creativity, entrepreneurship, humor, generosity and integrity.
The Emmy Award-winning documentary film The Legend of Pancho Barnes and the Happy Bottom Riding Club has screened on most American Public Television stations, ABC-TV Australia, prestigious film festivals and is available on DVD.
