In 1893, Georgian horsemen from the Caucasus immigrated to the United States where for more than 30 years they performed in circuses and Wild West shows under the billing of "Russian Cossacks." The connection between Buffalo Bill Cody and the Georgian trick riders represents one of the earliest relationships between Georgia and the United States. Western historian Dee Brown wrote, "Trick riding came to rodeo by way of a troupe of Cossack daredevils imported by the 101 Ranch. Intrigued by the Cossacks' stunts on their galloping horses, western cowboys soon introduced variations to American rodeo." This is the story of the men who came in search of financial support for their families in Georgia and, without knowing it, influenced an essential fixture of American culture.

Book Description McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1893 the Horsemen from Georgia, Caucasus, went to the United States where for more than 30 years they performed under the name of Russian Cossacks in the American circuses and shows. The Georgian riders were called Cossacks for different reasons, perhaps, the most important of which was the fact that Georgia was part of the Russian empire at that time and so each Georgian was referred to as Russian. This is the true story of people who arrived in America in search of financial support for their poor families back in Georgia and, at the same time without knowing it had influenced the riding technique of many participants in the most popular shows of that time.Dee Brown, the noted western historian wrote, Trick riding came to rodeo by way of a troupe of Cossack daredevils imported by the 101 Ranch.
