    Why Cowboys Hobble Their Horses

    Why Cowboys Hobble Their Horses

    Hobbling horses dates back to at least the ancient Egyptians.  And while today hobbles are most closely associated with Western culture and their use by working cowboys to restrain horses in lieu of trees or other tie devices, hobbles are also an effective training tool for horses.  This week's episode talks about the benefits for both horse and human of being purposely uncomfortable. And of course, we’ll have the cowboy glossary word of the week. So why not ride along?

    Boss Of The Plains - The Story of John B. Stetson

    Boss Of The Plains - The Story of John B. Stetson

    There are very few items in North American culture that carry the same iconic weightiness as the cowboy hat. It's the singular item of apparel that can be worn in any corner of the globe, by most anyone, and receive instantaneous acknowledgment. As the old cowboy saying goes, “It’s the last thing you take off and the first thing that is noticed.” Interestingly, the history of the iconic cowboy hat is not that old, and in this episode we talk about John B. Stetson and his iconic "cowboy's" hat.  And of course, we’ll have the cowboy glossary word of the week. So why not ride along?
