WRANGLER

The cowboy - the wrangler has always interested me as a subject from childhood. I think possibly because it has remained unchanged in all its apparent familiarity since its twenty-year span of existence during its 1865 -1880’s heydays. Although thoroughly misrepresented by Hollywood and the films it made, that sense of open range wonder, natural spectacle, and mastery of horse has always appealed and was what I saw when I was introduced to that world at a ranch in Colorado. The sheer hard work and dedication of the horsemen and women is not just a job, it is a passion, a vocation, and assimilation with all things natural and never more than equine paced.
