Cowgirl Nocona appears on the cover of Texas Highways magazine

When you pick up the September issue of Texas Highways magazine, enjoy Dave Shafer’s beautiful black-and-white cover of “The Cowboy Issue,” which also includes one of Montague County’s young cowgirls, Maddie Ferguson of Nocona.

While the new edition won’t be released for another week, the Ferguson clan was able to see an advanced issue last week and was thrilled to see the teen on the cover.

Maddie is the 18-year-old daughter of Bob and Kristal Ferguson, who own and operate the Red River Station Inn in Nocona. A 2021 graduate of Nocona High School, Maddie was active nationwide and served as an Indian pet. She has also become an avid knight who competes in roller and queen contests during high school.
