The tie in the picture features a cowboy riding a horse. A wave of western pioneering was set off in the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries. Cowboys from various regions arrived in the wild west, sporting Mexican felt hats, leather jackets, jeans, and high leather boots. They galloped across the western prairie, driving Texas cattle to the Kansas railroad in the north. Common folk called them "heroes on horseback." The cowboy culture is a characteristic of Texas and a manifestation of adventure, hardship, and independence. It has also become a symbol of American heroism today.
