About Cowgirls and Cowboys in the West

Who are we?

We are Texans who love the heritage, western life and the flavors of America’s western culture. We love our ranches, western music, western lore, herding cattle, ridin’ horses and history of the Wild, Wild, West.

What is more important for you, is that we love introducing visitors to the rich traditions of the West and the Texas Panhandle. We specialize in tourism, hospitality, food, history, and just showing off our land, our horses, our cattle, and the dramatic and colorful western heritage of Texas! We have the knowledge and skills to help you experience the history of our beautiful and historic land in very personal way – that will create memories of a lifetime. When you depart our company, you will have known true Texas Hospitality!

“Creating memories of a lifetime!”

Our Principle Partners – Phyllis & The Horses of Los Cedros Ranch (the name of our ranch)


Cowgirls and Cowboys in the West was started by Phyllis Golden, to introduce international, and domestic travelers to the exciting experiences of the American West- particularly horseback riding and private chuckwagon events.

Born into a family of hoteliers, she has provided exceptional hospitality experiences in metropolitan areas such as New York, Phoenix, and Seattle – as well as smaller, more intimate markets in Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico and Texas. Settling in West Texas in the 1990’s, she slowly transitioned from the hotel business to the cattle business. Phyllis has combined her love for both, by offering tourism experiences that focus on the Best of the West! We welcome you to experience Texas hospitality from a true, experienced, hospitality professional and her Cowboy and Cowgirl team!
