After a ride at Cheyenne Frontier Days, the cowboy sits alone reflecting on his ride. Maintaining a photographic memory of what he could do better and how to be one with the beast.

The love for the cowboy way has been instilled in me since I was a young girl. I was raised in Wyoming among some of the Lord’s greatest creations. His sunsets, sunrises, mountains, waterfalls, people and wildlife are just a few small blessings I glimpse of his beautiful creation. I live on a sheep ranch in Wyoming with three horses. I work daily with Columbia sheep. I have discovered the beautiful moments and the hardships of what a rancher experiences daily. A cowboy’s way of life embraces hard work, trust and respect.
