The American Cowboy


Malibu Ranch pays tribute to the American Cowboys, our frontier heroes who pioneered their way through a lawless West. They had a strong work ethic and endured long days in the saddle riding for the brand. A day's work was usually rounding up horses and cattle on the open range, branding, and breaking horses to the saddle.

Some were builders and some were leather crafters very skilled at hand-tooling saddles. Cowboys were known to be poets along the lonesome trails and sang softly to cattle they tended. Their courageous spirit lives on today at professional rodeos.
