The âVaqueroâ is the original cowboy. Ever heard of the name, âbuckarooâ? It is a derivative of the word âvaqueroâ (in Spanish the âvâ is pronounced like a âbâ). The Mexican vaqueroâs were, and still are, some of the worldâs finest horsemen.
Study the early Mexican vaqueroâs and youâll see that the American cowboy owes a great deal to his way of life (i.e. habits, tack, skills).
