My name is Marianne Easter and my passions include ranching and breaking colts, cooking for cowboys, fashion, exercise/health and serving my King. Growing up on my family’s ranch in north Texas has shaped me into the women I am today. I have been working first hand with horses and cattle since before I could talk. My toddler days were spent horseback squeezed in the saddle with my dad, pre-school I graduated to riding pastures, and kindergarten is when my career as a full-time cowgirl really took off. Currently, I am a senior at Texas Tech University majoring in Agricultural Communications with a minor in Agricultural Economics. I am also a proud member of the 2016 Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team. We compete under the national spotlights of NRCHA, AQHA, ASHA, SHOT and RHAA forums, and are working to gain our sixth national championship this year. With my captivating spirit and down to earth disposition, my friends would say that my personality lies somewhere between Audrey Hepburn and the Pioneer Woman. I would love the opportunity to represent Kimes Ranch and prove that girls can look like ladies while efficiently doing a man’s job.
