Juanita, whose trick riding and trick roping brought her fame throughout the U.S., did not see a rodeo until the age of twenty, when she joined her mother in the King Brothers Show and experienced the life of a Wild West performer. She met and married her husband in the rodeo arena, performing with him as a top trick act for over twenty years. Juanita was also one of the original Cowboy Turtle Association members.
