Snooky Griffith was born into a ranching family located out of Rock Springs, Texas. Her dad bought a ranch out of Toyah and Pecos and she moved to the Pecos area with her family. In 1946, Snooky was chosen to compete as the Reeves County Sheriff’s Posse sponsor at the West of the Pecos Rodeo. Thus began her love of rodeo and its lifestyle.
Snooky became a member of the “Lighting S Quadrille Team”, performing at rodeos across the United States. From Boston to San Francisco, from Houston to San Antonio and from Selma, Alabama to New York she represented not only Pecos, Texas but the life and style of a cowgirl.
She rode at the Pecos rodeo many times, competing in barrel racing and of course, always had a special fondness for the West of the Pecos Rodeo.
To really appreciate what Snooky Griffith has contributed to rodeo, stop by the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame located in the Old T&P Depot in Pecos, Texas. Snooky was inducted into the TRHoF in 2006.
