He was a rodeo cowboy and rancher, while she was a stable owner, riding instructor and wife. Together they managed ranches for Lyndon Baines Johnson and she spent more than a half-century teaching girls horsemanship at Waldemar Camp. The Depression ruined Connies plans to practice law. Instead, in 1936, she joined the staff at Waldemar as head riding instructor and continued in that capacity for over sixty years. She touched the lives of thousands of young women as a role model and a mentor. Connie married in 1942 and with her husband managed a 10,000 plus acre ranch for more than forty years. In 1997 she was inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame.
