Cowboy or Native American?
 
If you got to ride around all day on a horse, which would you rather be? A cowboy or Native American? Me personally, Id have to say Native American.

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 :shock:

NAtive American. I'm reading a book right now called "Horse, Follow Closely" written about native americans and training/relationships with their horses. I LOVE it.

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.

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.
