In the United States, a few women also took on the tasks of ranching and learned the necessary skills, though the "cowgirl" discussed below did not become widely recognized or acknowledged until the close of the 19th century.

Cowboy - Cowboy the 16th century, the Conquistadors and other Spanish settlers brought their cattle-raising traditions as well as both horses and domesticated cattle to the Americasstarting with their arrival in what today is Mexico and Florida.
In turn, the land and people of the Americas also saw dramatic changes due to Spanish influence. The arrival of horses was particularly significant, as equines had been extinct in the Americas since the end of the prehistoric ice age. However, horses quickly multiplied in America and became crucial to the success of the Spanish and later settlers from other nations. The earliest horses were originally of AndalusianBarb and Arabian ancestry,  but a number of uniquely American horse breeds developed in North and South America through selective breeding and by natural selection of animals that escaped to the wild.
The Mustang and other colonial horse breeds are now called "wild," but in reality are feral horses —descendants of domesticated animals. While most hacendados ranch owners were ethnically Spanish criollos many early vaqueros were Native Americans trained to work for the Spanish missions in caring for the mission herds.

By the s, the expansion of the cattle industry resulted in a need for additional open range. Thus many ranchers expanded into the northwest, where there were still large tracts of unsettled grassland.
Texas cattle were herded north, into the Rocky Mountain west and the Dakotas. They caught the Mustangs that roamed the Great Plains and the San Joaquin Valley of California, and later in the Great Basinfrom the 18th century to the early 20th century. Large numbers of cattle lived in a semi- feralor semi-wild state on the open range and were left to graze, mostly untended, for much of the year. In many cases, different ranchers formed "associations" and grazed their cattle together on the same range.
In order to determine the ownership of individual animals, they were marked with a distinctive brandapplied with a hot iron, usually while the cattle were still young calves. In order to find young calves for branding, and to sort out mature animals intended for sale, ranchers would hold a roundupusually in the spring.
