HISTORY

FOR THE HORSEMANS EYE AND SOUL

 
HOULIHAN

As the buckaroos brought cattle up from the Great Basin, Texas punchers brought longhorns up the Goodnight Loving Trail. The two cultures met in Wyoming/Montana territory and the Northern Range Cowboy was born. To make a hand here, you must be able to ride rough horses with plenty of buck in em’ and stick it out through long, cold winters. Houlihan takes you on the next leg of the Vaquero Trail and introduces you to a whole different breed of cowboy.

This 90 minute documentary has just been released and is taking the Vaquero horsemen community by storm.

Los Primeros

The Vaquero roots go back fifteen centuries to Spain, the Moors and Mexico. He carried his bravery to the New World and had a profound influence on the Californio Vaquero and his horsemanship. Filmed in Spain, Mexico and the American West.

 

Tapadero

The story of the Californio Vaquero and how he became one of the world’s greatest horsemen. It uncovers the secrets of the spade bit horse and rawhide reata, and introduces you to the mainstays of vaquero horsemanship, past and present.



The Remuda

picks up where Tapadero leaves off, and takes you to the land of the Buckaroo, the Great Basin Country of Nevada and Oregon. You’ll get an insider’s look at famous ranches, like the White Horse in the Owyhee Desert of Oregon and the TS in Battle Mountain, NV. You’ll watch as they wrangle in their big cavvys, and expertly rope out their horses for the buckaroos to go to work. You’ll see them branding on the open range, using skills passed down by their Californio forebears.
Holo Holo Paniolo.

The Hawaiian cowboys inherited a rich history, originating with the vaqueros of Alta California, when it was still part of Mexico. The filmmakers take you to many of the ranches across 5 islands, the places where wild cattle that inhabited the volcanic slopes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea were chased down. Catching them demanded great horsemanship and uncommon bravery. This courage under fire is the birthright of the paniolo and prevails to this day. This very engaging film also features great interviews with original Paniolos and their music in the slack key guitar style.
