Gene Krieg Creed

In 1925, Gene became the youngest woman ever to win the bronc riding at Cheyenne. She and her sister Vaughn learned to ride before they were five and were soon helping their brothers break wild horses and pursue stray cattle on the family’s Colorado ranch. One of the best cowgirls around, Gene won trick riding, relay races and bronc riding championships during a career which spanned three decades and three continents.
