  • Cowboy hats!!!???

    Just watched 'Pale Rider'. The opening shots of the cowboys at full tilt set me to cogitating... how do they keep their 'ats on while on a galloping 'orse!?

    The long toll of the brave
    Is not lost in darkness
    Over the fruitful earth
    And athwart the seas
    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
    Unquenchable forever.

      Or a six inch nail through the top of the actor's melon?

        I know for fact John Wayne just stared it down and dared it move an inch.

          Don't confuse what the British Army did to you with the treatment of Hollywood actors. A six inch nail through the top of an actor's melon would kill a normal human being. In your case, it just left another hole in your fick' skull that makes an annoying whistling noise everytime the wind blows..

            Umm....might the strap or cord that goes under the chin have something to do with it? That and pulling the hat low, and having one that fits properly.....

              I see you never seen a cowboy hat. What strap? Go to a westeren store and try to find a hat with a cord or strap. Lots of luck on finding one.

                The same magic that allows them to shoot their six shooters 15 times without reloading also works for keeping their hats on.

                  But aren't most stetsons sold to people for everyday use, with no intention of wearing them on a horse and at the gallop.

                  A stampede string was attached by hooks that were located inside the crown or was pinned through the crown band and bent around the inside of the hat band, or a leather strap was attached to the inner hooks.

                  Can win mans heart for you;
                  And many a blessing know to stew
                  To make a megloamaniac bright;

                        They kept the hats on the same way they kept the indian's whigs on.

                          It was always funny to me how, in the movies, they could jump or fall off their horse, or fistfight, and the hat never came off.
                          And how many times have you seen'm driving a convertable with the top down...AND THE HAT DONT MOVE!!!

                            you will find them more on the rodeo circuit. my clearest image is for alot of the barrel racing on the final sprint lots of ladies hats will come off but will be around the neck due to the cord. saves time from having to go back out.

                            Also watching bull riders with their hats on is interesting.

                              And if you follow rodeo, you'll notice that many bull riders are wearing helmets.
