Talli Manning on a cattle round-up, Big Piney, Wyoming, 1993
“I like to be a cowgirl: that’s my favorite thing to do—move cows or chase horses, to be outdoors on the range.
I like action riding, like when we gather for a branding; the horses are breaking back, and everyone’s running around real fast. It’s a real rush.
I think that’s what I like, the rush.
It does have its grueling side. Some days are the most wonderful in the world, and other days, I’ll ask myself, why am I doing this?”
