    Connie Reeves Kerrville, Texas At 101 years old, Connie was still riding her horse every day. She taught over 36,000 girls to ride at a girls summer camp over a span of 70 years. She was a huge inspiration to many people. Her health was great and her mind was sharp. I asked her what her secret to longevity was. She said, “Well Honey, you just don’t let that rocking chair take over…you get up and go even if you don’t want to.” The American Cowgirl Project

    When I Am An Old Horsewoman: When I am an old horsewoman, I shall wear turquoise and diamonds, And a straw hat that doesn’t suit me And I shall spend my social security on white wine and carrots, And sit in my alleyway of my barn And listen to my horses breathe.... (click to read the rest; great poem!)

"A Cowgirl's belief system is what she lives by. She is not easily swayed by popular belief or fads, nor does she feel pressure to conform. She lives with passion, loves hard, treats everyone like family, but is not afraid to make an deserving enemy." Winston S. Churchill
