Doug Groves on Craft and Tradition of the Nevada Buckaroo
Recipient of the Nevada Governor’s Arts Award and the Nevada Heritage Award, Great Basin buckaroo and braider Doug Groves makes finely crafted artisan horse gear. Learning rawhide braiding from peers in the bunkhouse and beyond, he now passes on the skills and techniques for turning rawhide into beautiful and functional gear. Join Doug as he discusses the history of rawhide, its traditional uses as horse gear, and how our ranching history is passed on with this skill through stories and folklore.
