Special Performance for 2017 Chisholm Trail 150th Year Celebration

In 2017 the trail will be officially 150 year old and in celebration of the trails anniversary I will be traveling across the states telling amazing stories of the Chisholm Trail and about the super cowboys who drove the cattle north looking for their fortune.


My father told us stories of how cattle were drove up the Chisholm trail in order to fetch a better price. The cattle were only worth $4 a head  in Texas but if they they drove them north their profits could increase their profits 10 times making each cow worth about $40 a head for each full size longhorn. So many a cowboy took a chance crossing Indian Territory expecting graet rewards. The trip tested even the toughest cowboy. The cowboys had to cross rivers and pass through Native American land where they had to pay a tolls to cross or they were under fear of attack and losing everything.

In 1864 the adventurous half Cherokee Native American trader from Tennessee named Jesse Chisholm scouted out  the trail as a means to transport his goods in his wagon from one trading post to another.

I will of course be bringing hundreds of trick rope for everyone to give a spin.
