Vaquero Series Volume#1 - Tapadero DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

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.
Vaquero Series Volume#2 - The Remuda DVD
Vaquero Series Volume#2 - The Remuda DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

In a remote Nevada cow camp, they jingle in the remuda. There’s a chill in the air, and steam rises up off the horses’ backs. The jigger boss’s rope whistles through the air, expertly landing on target. A buckaroo picks up a horse, halters and leads him to the corral. It’s a ritual that seems almost choreographed, but to a buckaroo, it’s just part of another day, an outgrowth of a tradition that goes back 300 years, to the original Californio Vaqueros. This is the story of how it began in Alta California, moved into the Great Basin country of Nevada and Oregon, and shaped one of the world’s greatest horse cultures. 90 minutes.

Vaquero Series Volume#3 - Holo Holo Paniolo DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

Holo holo in Hawaiian, means to get around and that's what this documentary is all about. Filmed on five Hawaiian islands, it takes you to the large spreads like Parker Ranch, and to some of the smaller homesteads of the native Hawaiians. It all started in 1833 when King Kamehameha recruited 3 vaqueros from Alta California to train the Hawaiians how to ride, rope and catch the wild cattle. 98 minutes.

LOS PRIMEROS • The First Vaqueros
The vaquero and his horse move as one.  Perfectly in tune as they read each other’s minds and body. He shakes out his reata. Builds his loop.  And tosses a perfect “del viento.” laying the calf down like a babe in a manger. Who is this man who sits his horse like a king on a throne? His skills were honed in Alta California a couple of centuries ago.

The best of these proud Vaqueros earned the title “Californio.” With his gentle hands and lightning-fast spade bit horse, he was the best of all reinsmen in the West.  And his lingo, albeit Americanized now, hints at his beginnings. The Spanish dar la vuelta (take a turn around the horn) became dally.  Jaquima became hackamore, la reata became lariat.
And while he adjusted to life in this new land, his beginnings on the other side of the ocean would always be a part of him.
Vaquero Series Volume#6 - Tierra Encantado DVD
Vaquero Series Volume#6 - Tierra Encantado DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

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.
Vaquero Series Volume#7 - Mula DVD
Vaquero Series Volume#7 - Mula DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

When a tough job needs to be done, the mule is the animal of choice. He's a survivor, can go further on less food and water and carry more weight than a horse. Mules are used in the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains. Recreational riders in the rocky deserts of the southwest love their ability to handle the toughest terrain. And big draft mules drag out logs in the South. This is the story of the mule from when he first arrived in the Americas with Columbus. 98 minutes.
Vaquero Series Volume#8 - Texas Cowpuncher Pt.1 DVD
Vaquero Series Volume#8 - Texas Cowpuncher Pt.1 DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

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.
Vaquero Series Volume#9 - Texas Cowpuncher Pt.2 DVD
Vaquero Series Volume#9 - Texas Cowpuncher Pt.2 DVD
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

The Texas Cowpuncher comes in many forms, born by the chunk of country he calls home. Down in Gulf country, Cowboys on horseback can get ornery crossbred Brahmas to do most anything, even swimming the Intercoastal Waterway to winter grazing grounds. Further inland, they rely on their dogs “to bay up” the cattle in the swamps and woodlands, and watch out for the occasional alligator.
In the brush country, cattle hide in thorny mesquite thickets, but fearless Brush Poppers charge right in after them. And in West Texas, branding takes weeks as Punchers move from camp to camp with the wagon and a hunded-horse remuda. The day begins before sunup and doesn’t finish until two gathers and two brandings are done. In this country, there’s a code of conduct, and breaking it has “consequences”. 116 minutes
Vaquero Series Volume#10 - Bayou Cowboys of Louisiana
Vaquero Series Volume#10 - Bayou Cowboys of Louisiana
Our Price: $35.00 Inc GST

In this country cowboying goes along with part-time ‘gator hunting. And Cajun and Zydeco music packs more kick than a Crawfish Étouffée. Cattle handling draws on many roots — France, Canada, Africa Spain, with a little Texas thrown in, too.
And muddy marshlands, drenching rains, and vicious hurricanes wield their influence on horses, saddles and the intrepid cowboys who ride them. So when it comes to gear, practicality rules.
