Reining & Ranch Horse

Ranch culture stems from 2 distinct origins. The first is the influence of the Spanish Vaquero. These horsemen left their stamp on the Buckaroo, Hawaiian Paniolo, and the Houlihan.

The second main tradition was influenced by the British and French colonists. The horsemanship cultures that were influenced by these peoples include the Florida Cracker, Louisiana/Bayou Cowboys, and the Texas Cowpunchers.

If you are interested in learning more. I recommend the Vaquero Video Series
