4th Annual National   
Day of the American Cowboy

 July 26th

The National Day of the Cowboy is a day set aside by the United States Senate to pay homage to our Cowboy and Western heritage, as well as to honor working Cowboys and Cowgirls, rodeo athletes, Western musicians, Cowboy poets, Western artists, ranchers, and all others who continue to contribute to the Cowboy and Western culture in America today.

The purpose in supporting the  Cowboy Day  resolution is to encourage recognition and appreciation for all the good that the cowboy represents. By sharing information about the campaign, ceremonies, and celebrations, we hope to ensure that the National Day of the Cowboy achieves the highest possible level of public involvement, awareness, and stature; and is finally passed in perpetuity. 


The Code
  of the West

  1. Live each day with courage.
  2. Take pride in your work.
  3. Always finish what you start.
  4. Do what has to be done.
  5. Be tough but fair.
  6. When you make a promise, keep it.
  7. Ride for the brand.
  8. Talk less and say more.
  9. Remember that some things aren't for sale.
  10. Know where to draw the line.
