The subtitle for “A Western Attitude” says it all: Iconic Images From Western Horseman. Those images include 144 photographs of horse-industry icons and fan favorites, all featured in Western Horseman magazine during the past 15 years.
Subjects include ranchers, trainers, trail riders, clinicians, competitors, artists, entertainers and others photographed by award-winning Western Horseman staffers. These staff photographers and writers also spend time horseback. They’ve gathered cattle with the ranchers, put their own horses into training programs, ridden trails nationwide, and hauled their horses to clinics, practice pens, competitive arenas and cowboy gatherings. That’s authenticity – horse people capturing images of the best in the stock-horse industry.
Great shots chronicle life on such outfits as the Alvord, Gray, Haythorn, Pitzer and Stuart ranches, and others throughout the country. Competition photos capture the action at events ranging from the Calgary Stampede, Extreme Mustang Makeover and Jake Clark Mule Days to vaquero-style ropings, ranch rodeos and more. Stunning views taken along riding trails throughout the United States and Canada whet the appetite for backcountry adventure, and training photos feature techniques used by top hands and horsemen in the making. Portraits reflect a cross-section of even more who share the cowboy lifestyle—artists, authors, craftsmen and –women, musicians, poets and all-around interesting characters.
Trevor Brazile, Benny Guitron, Mozaun McKibben and Buster Welch are few of the featured competitors. Martin Black, Jack Brainard, Buck Brannaman, Craig Cameron, Chris Cox and Richard Winters are among those in the training section. Baxter Black, Jerry Diaz, Roy Duvall, Billie and Hollie Etbauer, Wylie Gustafson, Shannon Lawler, Buster McLaury, Orren Mixer, Tom Moorhouse, Chester Stidham, Buck Taylor, Ian Tyson, Jeremiah Watt, Kim Williamson – the list is long.
