COWGIRL Magazine launched its first-ever model search in pursuit of a fresh face to represent the brand for 2021-2022.
With over 90 well-qualified applicants, three rounds of selections, and video interviews with the models, it was difficult to pick just one. We made the decision to offer our other 2 top finalists the chance to represent COWGIRL as Special Project Models, meaning they will be representing the brand at events, participating in editorial features, and creating content for our social media platforms.
We are so proud to present Danielle Reinhart and Ramona Hutson as COWGIRL’s 2021-2022 Special Project Models and welcome them to our COWGIRL family.

I have always been passionate about promoting the community of the Western industry from the corporate world to the practice pen. I currently work in the Financial Technology Industry, was Calgary Stampede Rodeo Royalty (yes I’m originally from Canada, eh?!), have a love for Western fashion, and currently spend my weekends breakaway roping! I see the
importance of promoting the community the Western industry provides and take pride in educating those around me that you don’t have to own a pair of cowboy boots and spurs to be part of such an incredible community.
“A cowgirl is hardworking, driven, loyal, and passionate. A cowgirl is not afraid of change or challenges, she embraces them. A cowgirl is not afraid to get her hands dirty, lend a helping hand, learn something new or admit she was wrong. A cowgirl shows grit and grace regardless of circumstance and is dependable and authentic to the core. A cowgirl doesn’t have a certain look or style, way of speaking, or geographical location. A cowgirl has class and respect for others and is true to herself. A cowgirl is unique, builds up others, and promotes a community of strength and conﬁdence. To me, a cowgirl isn’t a word. It’s a way of life. It’s a title earned and upheld through your actions. It’s a platform not too tall for anyone to reach and one you don’t look down on others from. Cowgirl is a badge of honor to wear proudly.”

I was raised in a small town in East Texas and have since grown a love for all things Western fashion and lifestyle. I started modeling Western fashion in 2018 and have been doing it on the side while attending school. I am now approaching my senior year at Texas A&M University and want to try taking modeling a little more seriously to potentially pursue it full-time. Although I didn’t personally grow up on a ranch or partake in rodeos, I love that the Western fashion industry is inclusive to all who have an appreciation for it.
“When I hear the phrase “cowgirl” the first thing that comes to mind is a woman who is fearless. Over the years I feel like women as a whole have broken the stereotype that in order to be a true cowgirl you have to be born into the ranching or rodeo lifestyle. I believe cowgirls come in all shapes and sizes, and from all walks of life. Cowgirls motivate and empower each other and pave the way for future cowgirls to learn from their mistakes. Cowgirls are tough but act with grace. I think it is very important to be your own kind of cowgirl and embrace who you are & who God created you to be.”
