LOS PRIMEROS The Vaquero’s roots go deep. His beginnings are on the other side of the world, It’s been a long journey — 13 centuries — back to the Moors of North Africa and their nimble Barb horses. To Spain, where the blending of Moorish and Spanish horse cultures laid the groundwork for the bridle horse that was the hallmark of these superb reinsmen. To Mexico, where the underpinnings for roping and handling cattle on the open range evolved. And to California, where it all came together. Here, the secrets of training horses through centuries of practice came full flower. And the hackamore, romal reins and spade bit were refined. The best of these proud Vaqueros earned the title “Californio.” Filmed in Spain, Mexico, California and the American West. 98 minutes.  $19.95

HOULIHAN traces the journey of the vaqueros and buckaroos to the Northern Range, where they met up with the Texas Punchers. Horses in this country were wild, tough and mean enough to eat you alive. So it's no wonder this country turns out the best bronc riders. To make a hand here, you have to be able to ride anything with hair on it. That, coupled with the rigors of winter make the Northern Range Cowboy a breed of it own. Houlihan DVD is 96 minutes. $19.95

HOLO HOLO PANIOLO "Holo holo" in Hawaiian means "to get around". The Hawaiian cowboys inherited a rich history originating with the vaqueros of Alta California when it was still part of Mexico. In 1833, King Kamehameha sent for three of them to teach his people how to rope, ride and catch the wild cattle. The cattle that inhabited the volcanic slopes were roped and tied to trees (today's rodeo games reflect this). Highlighting the story is the music. It was from the vaqueros’ Spanish guitars that the Hawaiian "paniolo" (taken from the "espanolos" of CA) created the slack key guitar style. Also filmed are Billy Askew and Allan Drew in slow motion reata roping at Carmel. $19.95
