I Married A Cowboy


I Married a Cowboy by Connie Douglas Reeves.

Learn about the life of Connie Douglas Reeves and her husband Jack. He was a rodeo cowboy and rancher and she was a stable owner and riding instructor. Together they managed ranches for Lyndon Baines Johnson. Connie Reeves spent more than 60 years teaching horsemanship to thousands of girls horsemanship at Camp Waldemar in Hunt, Texas before being tossed from her horse and dying at the age of 101.  She taught far more than riding. Her most famous bit of advice, "Always saddle your own horse" is one of our favorite quotes at The Cowgirl and a resonates with thousands of people from all walks of life. 

Connie rode nearly every day of her life, and rode in our museum's opening ceremony! Connie Douglas Reeves was inducted into our Cowgirl Hall of Fame in 1997.
