Senate passes National Day of the American Cowboy resolution
The American Horse Council is pleased the U.S. Senate June 9 passed a resolution honoring the American cowboy. The resolution, introduced by U.S. Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, designates July 25 as "National Day of the Cowboy."
The bill pays tribute to the enduring legacy of the cowboy in America and the contributions cowboys continue to make to our nation today.
"I am happy the United States Senate is honoring such an enduring cultural icon of the American West that is irrevocably linked with the history of the horse in this country. It is important to remember the cowboy and the horse remain an important part of America still. This resolution recognizes both the history and the continuing contribution of the American cowboy" said AHC President Jay Hickey.
As the national association representing all segments of the horse industry in Washington, D.C., the American Horse Council works daily to represent equine interests and opportunities.
