Product Description

The Royal North West Mounted Police were the first ranchers in Alberta. They laid the foundation for the three major Cowtowns: Fort Macleod, Calgary and Maple Creek. Fort Benton, a trading post in Montana, played an important role in providing longhorns for the first ranches. These Mexican cattle were trailed up to Alberta by Texas Cowpunchers. The Canadians picked up their style of riding and handling cattle. And developed large corporate ranches funded by wealthy Scotsmen. A few of these ranches are still operating. Today, you see Buckaroo-style gear and Vaquero-style horsemanship. Theses California traditions were passed down in clinics by Ray Hunt and Tom Dorrance.

    I have watched about 10 DVDs of the Vaquero series. Each one provides a great look into the history and current life of a given ranching community. This DVD is no different and provides great interviews with the staff and ranch owners. There were great moments captured both during the interviews and among the crew as they worked. Both educational and enjoyable to watch- a good addition to the series.
