Never said they were. Besides, what exactly is your definition of a 'cowboy' if you are comparing them with english riders...?

I'm currently training my horse and I want him to be very soft mouthed. I know it's different, but also kinda the same.
I could spend an hour and type oodles pages telling you what I"m doing, but I'd rather send you the link...lol. I have found this incredibly helpfull, and I'm getting fantastic results.
Good luck

No need to get huffy. I wasn't "comparing" them to english riders. I was simply saying not all cowboys are like that, just like not all english riders are say snobby for instance. My deffinintion of a cowboy? My father. A man who works 12 hr days, then comes home and works even more cause there stuff to be done, like fixing fence, halter breaking the show calves, trimming horses hooves, mowing hay, baling hay, moving and stacking hay, taking care of the animals. Then the next day he gets up before he has to go to work (even on graveyard shifts) and does it all again. It also helps that he can rope, ride and shoot.

No one got huffy. Just defending my opinion, which is that there are people out there that call themselves cowboys because they can jump on an untrained horse and spur/kick/slap the baby till it's 'broke'.

As others have stated, it depends on whether the horse is doing these things just because he doesn't know any better or because he thinks he can get away with it.

I take a different approach if it's a case of the horse blowing you off: ask politely once, then get strict about it. If he realizes that when he ignores your polite suggestion he has to do more work or is reprimanded, he'll be more willing to listen to your lighter aids.
