Mike Bridges

The California Vaquero Style can be traced to Mexico and California from the Iberian Peninsula by the Portuguese and Spanish Conquistadors. Mike began learning the Vaquero Tradition from his grandfather. Staying true to the traditions, Mike has spent more than fifty five years making a living from the back of a horse. His current public clinic offerings include Introduction to the Hackamore, Seeking Refinement, In Hand Work, Cattle Working Clinics and a Bridle Course.
