I love these guys. Seen them around over the years. Nice to have them here.
deliccate: 3rd Aug 2005 - 18:19 GMT
saw these guys on TV, Comedy Central: Dave Attell's Insomniac. Now I want to go horse back riding!

Inspiring, Impressive, and Wonderful. What a great organization. Keep up the work with the youth and helping others to realize the tremendous heritage of your fore fathers. Animals have always taught us, blessed our lives and gives us a chance to learn compassion, empathy, service and love.

Enough about these guys. It's their horses, Little Jack and Willow, who are the real heros. Jack and Willow not only deal with these two jamokes, but also bravely put up with traffic, dogs running off leash, picnic'ers on the bridle path, flying trash, to name a few things.
The Black Cowboy Federation would be nowhere without their equine partners. Their noble mission reminds us that horses make us better humans.
Peter: 5th Dec 2005 - 17:46 GMT
people picnic on the bridle path? it would be a terrible place for a picnic, what with the curvy cinder path strewn with giant piles of horse poop and hoof divots, and its a super-active horseback riding area. thats funny.

I hope to see these guys roaming up in Canada. That would be nice.

I saw a black cowboy on the subway the other day--all duded out with hat, belt, chaps, and a cool Black Cowboys Federation vest (with fringe, no less!). He was an older fellow and was looking through a huge pile of old snapshots, smiling.

in todays society,cowboys in nyc is a dieing breed. It seems our youth favors sex - technology - fast easy money - and drugs. yet children as well as adults all humble with enthusiasm and respect, when groups like the black cowboys or myself bring from our past. A majestic culture and animal for most to expierence and never forget.As long as im alive i will continue to promote the urban cowboy.

I read cowboy magazines and books when I was a little girl in Jamaica. I have always known about black cowboys and their contribution to the West. I am a cowgirl at heart (to the amazement of many). I go to the Bill Pickett tour when I can. It is a day of food, fun, and watching even 8 year old girls bulldogging. I'm glad to see the tradition being maintained, in Brooklyn no less, where I grew up.
Stefan: 23rd May 2006 - 22:08 GMT
anybody know how I can get in touch with these guys? It seems their website is down, and I'd love to chat with them or see them in their full regalia. thanks.

Before there was the Federation - there was just us guys riding the Blvd-riding up to the take out window of Burger King - riding the beach area and the streets of Brooklyn and Queens - I sure miss those days - Black and White riders from Linden Blvd - the Hole - as we called it - where are you guys - Big Ray, Butch, Dominic, Laurie, sure had wonderful fun - I left in 1985 for California....now I'm in Kershaw SC - If you are out there guys drop an email firstname.lastname@example.org

Sonny Garguilo Natural Horseman: 29th Sep 2006 - 04:42 GMT
Cowboy Up! These boys ride!From the oldest to the youngest.

I saw the article in today's NYPOST about the death of Romeo and the injuries to the rider. I live in Manhattan and ride horses in Central
MBP: 10th Oct 2006 - 18:38 GMT
Also saw the article - condolences to Romeo's owner and everyone at the stable. I am so sorry for all of you - what a horror. Prayers for the little boy and for everyone involved.
Linda: 10th Oct 2006 - 22:24 GMT
Impressed with your Federation.......and work with the beautiful horses and children..
Sonny Garguilo Natural Horseman: 11th Oct 2006 - 00:02 GMT
I can not believe what happened to Javed. I think about it so much. It is a terrible accident. I know that little cowboy is a real good rider. This could happen to anyone. I send my prayer's and wishes of speedy recovery. I would love to bring my horse SIS and do a demo to raise some money to get another horse for the little cowboy. Please if anyone could contact me I will arrange to be there.
David-Jamal Adkins: 15th Oct 2006 - 19:34 GMT
I, too, read about the terrible accident, and my heart goes out to the boys, the men, and their horses.
HOWEVER, It was also brought to my attention that the child was riding without a helmet. I don't care how long a child has been riding, or how good a "little cowboy" he may be. Riding is an inherently dangerous sport and it is our responsibility as adults to make sure that we make it as safe as possible for our youth, and that means wearing a HELMET!
Maybe it's uncool to be a cowboy in a helmet, but if you are under the age of 18, looking "cool" should take a back seat to being safe and being smart.
Sonny Garguilo Natural Horseman: 16th Oct 2006 - 02:02 GMT
Hey David I culdnt agree more if that is the case. I dont know if he was wearin a helmet, so I dont want to go there. I just want to help in some way. I know a few of these guys( all these cats are cool and can ride) and I love to see a kid that can mount and ride his ass off!
Carolann Johnson: 23rd Oct 2006 - 16:25 GMT
To the "coolest" cowboy in the world! (Per my granddaughter, Dayjah):
Stencil Stokes... You made our day!(Oct. 22,2006)
Everyone that you introduced us to was pleasant... but you're the "TOP"
anon (pool-71-125-226-72.nycmny.east.verizon.net): 28th Oct 2006 - 21:30 GMT
I was just wondering if the little boy was doing any better now?
email@example.com: 21st Dec 2006 - 15:30 GMT
I am a fan of the Federation and interested in pre-Federation Black Cowboys; that is, how the Federation came to formalize. Also very interested in "The Hole," as I grew up on Dumont Avenue and Miller Avenue, and the part of Dumont that was unpaved (we called it 'The Dip') struck me as a bucolic oasis. I am a novelist, and have set a scene in "The Hole."
Cowgirl Cyn: 12th May 2007 - 22:34 GMT
In the late '90s I so enjoyed visiting Cedar Lane Stables, bringing youngsters who cleaned up after and washed the beautiful horses, sometimes being encouraged to ride by the Cowboys. What a special place in NYC! And let's not forget the magnficent geese who also lived there by the stream. I'm interested in sharing this oasis with others ... please let me know more about the August rodeo, and how groups can visit, to firstname.lastname@example.org

If you know your history
I'm just a Buffalo Soldier
Lady Blues Jackie Amos: 4th Jan 2010 - 19:54 GMT
My name is Lady Blues Jackie Amos I had the pleasure to be in the company of the Black Cow Boys of Brooklyn, I took this time to archive this event, which those who came before them lives within these black men , through this historic archives of the Black Cow Boys, it is not the attire that represents who and what the Black Cow boys represent, it is the history of who they are, in my observation of the Black Cow boys, I saw pride, leadership, dignity, structure, and strength, in my synopsis of Soldier concluded my observation, keeping history alive is the main objective of these strong black men.
D. Cooper: 8th Jul 2010 - 14:53 GMT
I saw the Black Cowboys in Brooklyn at the gGrand Army Plaza day. I rode a horse they brought. It was great. I would like to know where I can send donations (equipment/saddles...). I know some one who has riding stuff they don't need any more and don't want to throw them out when I know your organization can us them. Please post contact number or email address. I will check this site again. Thanks.
