#CowboysForCops Takes Off in Texas

#CowboysForCops Takes Off in Texas

July 22, 2016

Nashville, TN

To show support for law enforcement, NFR bareback rider Clint Cannon started the hashtag #CowboysForCops, and it took off as cowboys and cowgirls wanted to pay their respect for fallen officers following the Dallas shooting.

Cannon had planned on riding ten miles through Waller County, Texas on his horse while leading a riderless horse with an American flag draped over its back. He was surprised and honored by the number of people and horses that decided to join him on his march – in 100-degree heat and sweltering humidity – to send the message to law enforcement that “‘we have your backs,’ because truly they have ours.” 

"We just wanted to show respect to all law enforcement in the state of Texas, and it turned out really cool," Cannon said. "To put an event together within three days and have that big of a turnout was pretty amazing."
