Caitlyn Taussig

Kremmling, Colorado

Caitlyn Taussig is a fourth-generation rancher from Kremmling, Colorado. She runs cow-calf pairs with her mother and sister on their high-country cattle ranch. Caitlyn’s favorite pastimes include night calving (crazy, right?), castrating calves at branding, learning to be a better roper, and studying up on bridle horses in the California tradition.

Caitlyn has been singing since childhood and has performed at ranch brandings, cowboy gatherings, and ranch ropings. She draws inspiration for her songwriting from her experiences summering cattle at 9,000 feet, cowboying in rough high country and dark timber, working on the family ranch and listening to her 91-year-old father’s wild stories. An article about the Taussig family appeared in the February 2016 issue of Western Horseman.
