Tra­di­tional Horse­man­ship

Horse & Rider - - Travel -

The NRCHA’s roots trace to the early va­que­ros of Cal­i­for­nia. For these cow­boys with Span­ish and Mex­i­can her­itage, a re­li­able cow horse was a ne­ces­sity—not a lux­ury. Their tra­di­tional train­ing meth­ods, work­ing in stages with the snaf­fle bit, hack­amore, two-rein, and fi­nally the full bri­dle, are honored and pre­served by the NRCHA’s com­mu­nity.
