The most necessary thing for a cowboy: his hat! Meet live cowboys and hear cowboy songs and stories at our Wild West exhibit, coming in February!
Working boot in the stirrup with a small rowel spur. Spur rowels look "meaner" than they are, as the rotation tempers the touch on the horse. Spurs are worn sitting on the spur rest of the boot, with the buckle of the spur strap worn around the top of the foot. Some cowboys also added small metal Jingo Bobs or Jingle Bobs, (Pajados) near the rowel to create a jingling sound whenever the foot is moved.
