Something happened when Ranger Doug, Too Slim, Woody Paul, and later Joey "The Cowpolka King" took the stage in the white cowboy hats and dazzling western regalia. Riders In The Sky revived the old Western songs that had been so popular in their childhood by following in the bootsteps of songwriting legends such as Gene Autry and Bob Nolan of The Sons of the Pioneers. At a time when the "outlaw" movement saw artists such as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson topping country charts with gritty songs about drinking and depression, Riders In The Sky hit just the right chord with maturing baby boomers. It's the Cowboy Way! is the story of the Riders' journey from obscurity to - well - less obscurity. It's a behind-the-scenes glimpse at a group of serious musicians with not-so-serious outlooks on life, four men who set out not just to revive a lost musical tradition but to nurture America's love of good-hearted, heroic cowboys.

The desire to meld the best of Western riding traditions with classical dressage in the pursuit of a harmonious relationship with a horse has steadily gained traction over the past two decades, and now the movement flourishes. More and more horse people are discovering the incredible rewards of training a well–balanced mount, using a soft feel, and developing communication based on kindness and cooperation. In this remarkable book, the founder of Cowboy Dressage® Eitan Beth–Halachmy explains the development of the Western dressage horse using his methods. Beginning with the basics of body language, use of the aids, and a discussion of the Training Pyramid, Beth–Halachmy then provides guidelines for foundational groundwork and progressive dressage schooling under saddle, such as developing cadence and consistency in the gaits, understanding and requesting correct bend, choosing and using lateral maneuvers, and advancing self–carriage and collection. Additional sections highlight the distinct benefits of the geometry of the Cowboy Dressage Court, the intrigue of training with the garrocha (a long pole or lance), and the great pleasure of riding musical freestyles. This fantastic guide is both valuable resource and inspirational touchstone, promising that in the end, horse and rider enjoy each other's company.

Rodeo Cowboys in the North American Imagination

Author: Michael Allen

ISBN:

Category: History

Page: 270

View: 594

In this study, historian Michael Allen examines the image of the rodeo cowboy and the role this image has played in popular culture over in the 20th century. He sees rodeo as a significant American folk festival and the rodeo cowboy as the surviving avatar of a nearly vanished authentic figure - the ""real cowboy"", who embodies the skills and values of traditional western rural culture. Allen's provocative analysis explores the evolution of the myth of the rodeo man and its subsequent institutionalization and acculturation into the media of popular culture. He discovers that America's fascination with the rodeo cowboy reflects feelings far deeper and more complex than a taste for exciting entertainment. This popular culture hero survives in our national imagination as a kind of living, contemporary ancestor, linking a largely urban population with its rural past and recalling the values and spirit of a time and region that most Americans perceive as somehow purer, freer and more noble. Allen's discussion of the archetypal figure of the rodeo cowboy aims to change perceptions of rodeo, but it will also help the reader to understand how the ancient tension between frontier and civilization continues to play a role in national imagination of the USA.
