Jackie was instrumental in the formation of the GRA; she helped to plan and found the association and served two terms as president. She learned to ride on her parent’s ranch, using everything from the milk-pen cows to the broodmares to train. Jackie’s thirteen-year rodeo career saw 23 world championship wins. A graduate of Texas State College for Women and an accomplished musician, Jackie eventually retired from rodeo to take over management of the family ranch.
