There wasn’t a bull he couldn’t ride, a bronc he couldn’t handle or a steer he couldn’t bring to the ground. Benny Reynolds was an all-around cowboy. But he wasn’t pretending to be a cowboy to put on a show, he was the real deal.
When he passed away on Feb. 14, 2014, from a heart attack, he was doing what he loved – driving his tractor on his ranch outside of Twin Bridges. People from across the United States remember Benny Reynolds as one of rodeo’s greats, but he was much more than that. In Madison County he was a rancher, father and friend.
