The National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock will be observing the 17th Annual National Day of the Cowboy on Saturday, July 24th.

Cowboys with their horses and cattle will be greeting visitors from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Cotton Leathers, foreman of the Frisco Creek Division of the Four Sixes Ranch, will be demonstrating the progression of training horses. Bedford Jones of Jones Cattle Co. will also be showing visitors how cowboys use their horses to work cattle.

NRHC Executive Director Jim Bret Campbell said:

It’s a natural fit for the National Ranching Heritage Center to be part of celebrating the National Day of the Cowboy since cowboys have been and still are critical to caring for and working with livestock on a daily basis.

 

We have visitors at the Ranching Heritage Center who think cowboys are a thing of the past. We tell them that thousands of cowboys are working on rangeland and pastures throughout America, but you aren’t going to see them from an interstate highway.

The NRHC is open to the public free of charge from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The historic park closes every day at 4 p.m., but the indoor museum will always remain open until 5 p.m.
