Wide open spaces, clear blue skies, and some of the world’s best sunrises and sunsets. Texas is its own unique “country,” where animals roam, sage blooms, and cowboys and cowgirls alike take the reins in managing the “wild west.” Although several cities across the great state of Texas have become some of the most modern and urban districts in the country, the wild Texas roots running deep within the state still must be tamed.

Cowboys and cowgirls have pledged their lives to taming Texas, and are still going strong today. The Texas Hill Country is full of natural treasures and plenty of land for livestock. Among the treasures are the tough but tender cowgirls.

They always say that “the prettiest girls are from Texas,” and we’d have to agree. Not only are our cowgirls beautiful, they’re intelligent, kind, witty, strong-willed, and supremely skilled. We wouldn’t trade ‘em for the world!

Moyers has an exhibit at the National Cowgirl Museum in Ft. Worth and is also being inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame on Nov. 5.
