Hello everyone !

About half of the cowboys were people of color.

It is a little-known reality of the conquest of the West: at the end of the 19th century, 45% of cowboys were black, Mexican, mestizo or Indians.

In the 1930s, one of them, Bill Pickett, even became a star.

He invented bulldogging, a technique that involves jumping off your horse to control a cow - or even a bull - by grabbing it by the horns!

The rodeos of the time made it an official event. And Bill Pickett, who attended, was dubbed the "black demon."

Good day and good game ;)
