Wisdom of the Real American Cowgirl

Being a cowgirl goes beyond riding a horse and working with cattle.

Growing up in Texas, we know that a cowgirl is a woman who is strong, confident, and not afraid of a hard day’s work. She is polite, sharing kindness with all the folks around her, and she doesn’t shy away from getting dirt under her fingernails. Each cowgirl is an inspiration to us all.

Over the years, many cowgirls and cowboys have passed down their wisdom and have provided encouragement to others. Dodie and I graduated from McCollum High School where the mascot is the Cowboys.

Today, we live near Bandera, the Cowboy Capitol of the World, and see the true Texas Hill Country spirit of the hearts and souls here. These photos and quotes are here to support and empower all of us and help build confidence and strength in these times of reassurance.

Sometimes we just need to think about our attitude and try approaching a situation differently rather than let something or someone ruin a whole day.

A gentle reminder that though it may be really hard, being kind to everyone is the right thing to do, even if they are not kind to you.

There are always going to be difficult times and being able to weather the storms are only going to make you a stronger person.

Sometimes you must take life by the reins if you want to chase your dreams and ambitions. A reminder: we have to get outside of our comfort zone to get what we truly want.

The values associated with cowgirls are ones of kindness, respect, and love. People can often lose sight of those values when it comes to personal gain and it is important to never lose sight of those beliefs.

Take each day with a good attitude and appreciate what you have, but don’t let that stop you from working towards your goals.

  1. Growing up every summer on my Grandparents farm in Santa Anna Texas, I never gave it much thought that my Grandmother, a Cherokee Indian from Oklahoma, would saddle a horse, or mule and help bring in the cows. To my cousins and myself, that’s what farm folks do. So, after reading your article, I would say that my Grandmother was a Texas cowgirl. She rode better than my grandfather, who preferred to walk with a long stick to poke the obstinate critters into line. I learned to ride on that farm, and got a good education on cows, chickens, sheep and coyotes.
