Description
 
The Texas Puncher cut his teeth roping wild longhorns. Then drove them east, on the Opelousas Trail to New Orleans through treacherous swamps and rivers. Years later, he headed ‘em north to the rail heads.
When the big ranches — XIT, Matador, Pitchfork and 06 were established, he had wild country to contend with…cavernous canyons, rivers with quicksand, mesquite thickets that tore his gear apart and cows determined never to be tamed. This was reflected in his gear and the way he works. He packs a short rope and ties hard and fast. He uses split reins and thinks a spade bit belongs in a museum.

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.
