The true California Style Vaquero Bridle horse is a thing of beauty – a living, functional art form. In this two volume set Mike shares his knowledge learned from studying the masters, and from his own experience, gained from more than 170,000 miles ridden. Throughout his life he has worked hard to glean the best parts of the teachings offered by respected horseman while developing his own incredible depth of knowledge. Building the true California Style Vaquero Horse is a multi-year process, requiring study, patience and dedication from the rider. These DVDs provide a wealth of details, from the physicality of the horse’s structure to the tools of the trade (bosal, mecate, reins and bit). In discussion and demonstration he takes you through the transition from snaffle or hackamore to the two-rein and on to the finished bridle horse.
