KTS Visalia

Traces its origins to the first ranches established by the Spanish in Mexico in 1519.  Spanish landowners mounted native Indians on well-trained horses and taught them to handle cattle.  By the early 1700’s, cattle ranching had spread north into what is now Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico and south to Argentina.  These native cowboys were called vaqueros (from the Spanish word ‘cow’) and developed roping skills, using braided rawhide reatas (the root word for lariat).
