Folks in Bandera, Texas have staked a claim as the cowboy capital of the world. It's where the old West isn't just celebrated, it's a way of life.
The town name means banner or flag in Spanish, and is thought to have sprung from a flag flown at Bandera pass to mark Apache Indian territory.
In the 1800s Bandera was the starting point of trail rides to Dodge City, Kansas.
Now 150 years later, Bandera remembers its roots with a commemorative trail ride and parade.
That's where a couple of KENS 5 city slickers turned into saddle-slinging cowboys - at least for the day.
Bill Taylor and Joe Reinagel served as celebrity trail-bosses, helping to move 40 head of longhorns down Main Street in Bandera Saturday.
'To me it's somebody that has a deep understanding of horses, understand the psychology, knows how to work with them, can train them," said one Bandera wrangler. "You know if you're a true cowboy cause if someone knocks your hat off you're going to get really upset."
Luckily, Bill and Joe weren't put to that test. They managed to keep their hats on their heads and their tails in their saddles.
"Well, we did it, man! We actually herded cattle," Bill said. "I'm a cowboy."
