Not all the best images make it in the magazine, like this one from the November issue’s “Woman of the West” shoot with South Dakota rancher Dawn Newland.
A good ranch horse knows when to shift quickly from quiet to fiery.

Breaking down on the road is always a bummer. A few weeks ago I was hauling my mare to a clinic in Wyoming and had arranged to make a stop near Cimarron, New Mexico, at the CS Ranch. The Davis family, who own and operate the CS, graciously agreed to keep my mare for a couple of days while I took some time off to be with family, who were vacationing in nearby Red River. Afterward, my plan was to press on to Wyoming.
This Arizona rancher is undeterred by long hours, border unrest, or the difficulty of running cattle in a harsh desert environment.
