(1911-2003)

From bringing in milk cows on horseback at age three to barrel racing at 76, Dora was a standout Texas horsewoman who consistently won on the horses she trained. A fierce promoter of barrel racing, she was the first to convince Texas Panhandle rodeos to include girls’ barrel racing as an event. While recovering from a riding injury, Dora turned to writing horsemanship articles for the major horse publications.
