This video uses both drone AND helmet cameras to portray a day in the life of working ranch hands as the drive, separate and load cattle from horseback.
Even in the year 2016 with all of our advancements in technology, it’s comforting to know that there are a few jobs that still need to be done on horseback.

Go cowboys, and go riding!
