TAPADERO • The Californios Volume 1
With their slick-fork saddles and silver spade bits, the Californio Vaqueros still trail cattle through these golden hills. Meet the men and women who work the ranches and carry the tradition forward. From the hackamore, to the two-rein, to straight-up-in-the bridle, see how they make a horse as fluid as silk. Learn their secrets to braiding the rawhide reata and throwing the figure eight. 82 minutes.

Ten Feature-Length Documentaries in the Complete Series.
Over 15 hours of Cowboy Entertainment.
Four centuries ago, conquistadors entered what is now known as the American West. They brought horses and cattle and Vaqueros to tend the livestock. These men were some of the world’s greatest horsemen.
The Vaquero Series plays tribute to the Spanish influence on the American cowboy. Branding, roping, rodeo and techniques of handling cattle, all originated with the Spaniards.

Their first settlement was Santa Fe in the 1600s. Then in 1690 they colonized Texas and later in 1767 they settled California. The Vaquero culture spread throughout the West and all the way to Hawaii. When Americans took over this country, they adopted the techniques and terminology — albeit many of the terms became anglicized.

This series takes you down the historical road, but not with dusty old photos. Instead, you meet working cowboys and cowgirls who inherited these rich traditions and use them in their working lives every day.
