Wondering where you can meet Wonder Woman?

At the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame of course, where there was many tales of the wonder women of the West.

But in this case, we’re talking about the Wonder Woman costume created by Lindy Hemming and worn by Gal Gadot who starred as Diana in the 2017 blockbuster movie.

It is one of many attractions for the grand reopening of the second floor, the Kit Moncrief Galleries and It’s Never Just a Horse.

The renovated area will open to the public March 9.

The connection between the famous costume and the museum lies with an Honoree inducted in 2018, Camilla Naprous, the museum said in a news release.

Naprous has dozens of television and movie credits to her name as horse master, including the award-winning Game of Thrones HBO television series.

Naprous also taught Olivia Coleman, who just won an Oscar for Actress in a Leading Role in the movie The Favourite, how to ride, the museum said.

The equestrian works and stunts in the Wonder Woman film were coordinated by Naprous who also served as a stunt double.

“We are continually exploring the many ways that horses have in the past, and will continue, to influence us,” says Dr. Diana Vela, associate executive director. “The inclusion of Naprous, and her work highlights the wide variety of cowgirls we honor in the Museum.”

In addition to the Wonder Woman costume, the Museum also has a saddle from Game of Thrones. This particular saddle was used by Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow in the series.

Both of these unique items will be on display when the museum reopens to the public on March 9.
