TIERRA ENCANTADO • New Mexico Cowboy
Four hundred years ago, Spaniards introduced the horse to the American West. El caballo, as the Spanish called him, had a profound effect on this new world. The horse provided transportation for the padres, gave Native Americans mobility. And for the Vaqueros, he provided the underpinnings for the ranching culture and the foundation for the American Cowboy.
The descendants of those early settlers still live in New Mexico and many of them still speak the dialect of the Conquistadors. The foundation the Spaniards laid for ranching is still practiced on the big spreads — the Bell Ranch, Pecos Ranch and San Cristobal Ranch. It’s all part of this great Southwestern melting pot where Spanish, Indian and Anglo come together, each preserving their own traditions, but forging a colorful culture unique to Tierra Encantado — the land of enchantment. 96 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.
