In the west, cacti grow abundantly while trees remain scarce. The hills become mountains when you are chasing a cow across the Sonora southwest. As the ground clears from the lack of rainfall in the summers, small thickets of shrubbery get so dense it’s hard to see where they start and stop. These are the areas where the hardiest of wild cows survive and are the most difficult to catch. Mathew takes over his father’s ranch when he is tragically killed. He began his taming horse career at a young age. While Mathew’s Grandfather loved the wild cow hunt, his father was more inclined to taming horses. So, he followed his dream and taught his young son the craft.
