Jus a short history lesson
The first horses had arrived in Hawaii about 1804.
Colorful and skilled Latin American vaqueros (cowboys) arrived in 1832 on invitation from Hawaii’s king to teach Hawaiians and foreign cattle hunters how to ride and rope the wild cattle.
By 1836, Hawaii had working cowboys.
What we consider American cowboys date back only to the 1870s.
Hawaii’s unique breed of cowboy, the paniolo, derived his name from these Spaniards, or Espanoles.
