I think a native American would be my choice. But the mental image of me riding without a saddle and in a loin cloth is not a pretty one, I will not sleep well tonight as this has burned a scar on my frontal lobe.
.. And there is another problem with the cowboy persona. Let me post a link that better explains

LOL... Barbarosa!!!!!!!! That's too funny.

I was going to say cowboy...Guess I need to whip up a batch of chili now that the bar for being a cowboy has been raised so high!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I choose cowboy, by the way a cowboy is a cowman who works from a horse

A buckroo is a horseman who works with cattle, a varquero is the same only Mexican or spanish type of the breed.

The cowboy's focus is the cows the others focus is on the horse.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I read that too, it is excellent.
I would have to pick native American because I think the females could ride astride. It took a long time for it to be acceptable for white women to ride any way but side saddle. I'd have a hard time with that.
