Part 1: Traditional Vaquero Gear with Richard Caldwell
In this first part of a series, Richard takes you through all of the essential pieces of traditional Vaquero gear and shares his insights into quailty, fit and craftsmanship. Learn gear from each stage of the bridle horse process, from the hackamore, to the two rein and finally the bridle. Richard discusses bosals and bosalitos, mecates, bridle bits, reins and romals, spurs, martingales, breast collars and saddles.
Richard Caldwell believed there is a need to preserve and bring back the true Vaquero methods of horsemanship and horse training. Richard spent 30 years buckarooing on ranches. He lived in Alturas, Calif., and traveled the country conducting clinics. He enjoyed showing his horses and had an impressive record at National Reined Cow Horse events, The Snaffle Bit Futurity, The Californios Ranch Roping and Stock Horse Contest, and other big loop roping events. In the show ring he was always true to his roots — he showed in all his buckaroo gear.
