The New York Cowboy Does It All!!!

Rope Slide ShowFrom an early age, Mark was proficient with all the cowboy skills: Horses, Whips, Ropes and Guns. He was lucky to meet and learn from many old Wild West Performers and Vaudevillians. He learned from the best and today is sought after by Professionals and armatures alike as one of the leading coaches in Wild West Skills.

He is a veteran World Traveler. At age 22 he hitchhiked around the world to 50 countries. Not as a tourist, he did it on $3.00 per day. As Mark puts it. “I loved every Dysentery Minute of It”. But I did learn the secret of having Dysentery.....”Never wear anything that you’re fond of”.....
