About This Quiz

The cowboy and cowgirl are in many ways the most iconic American symbols in our culture. They are a duo who were able to scratch out a living in a tough landscape. Today, their descendants are still with us, living the modern version of that same lifestyle. The horses have been partially replaced by ATVs and trucks, the music is amplified, and the amount of steak consumed has risen, but the fundamental values are the same. Cowgirls and cowboys appreciate family, loyalty, and country. They eat meat, they dress plainly, and they work hard—but they also know how to kick back and party.

Of course, you don't have to go full cowgirl to enjoy some elements of it. Perhaps you're the ultimate city sophisticate, but you come from a ranching family and your roots are still out there among the steers and the tumbleweeds. Perhaps you're at the other end of the scale: a line-dancing, slide-guitar playing, straight-shooting, country girl who loves her horses, her dogs, her truck, and her fella? Perhaps you're somewhere in between. It's time to find out just what percentage cowgirl you really are!
