Anyone who has worked closely with horses understands their innate ability to heal, soothe, and quiet a busy mind. A remarkable group of men touting the moniker The Compton Cowboys has tapped into the beautiful connection between human and horse and is putting it to work in the most unlikely of places. With a mission to support inner-city youth and their community through horseback riding, and to combat negative stereotypes about African Americans in the Los Angeles-area city of Compton, they’re shining a light on the power of healing through horsemanship and the possibilities that come from an equine and farming lifestyle.
Meet the Cowboys
The Compton Cowboys is a collective of lifelong friends in Compton, CA. They are on a mission to uplift their community through horses while highlighting the rich legacy of African Americans in equine and western heritage. They operate under the adage, “The streets raised us. Horses saved us,” and work to deliver that message to anyone who, as they did, needs to hear it most.
United by Horses
The Compton Cowboys’ dedication to bring horses to the masses is one that immediately charmed the team at Corro. Created by horse people for horse people, Corro is a one-stop digital shopping destination, committed to providing horse people with top horse care products for the best price and first-class customer service. From stable to saddle, Corro is revolutionizing how horse people shop and find the best product options for them and their horses.
“The work the Compton Cowboys is doing is so important. It’s no surprise to our team that horses are changing lives,” said Lindsay Douglass of Corro. “One of our missions in forming Corro was to celebrate the beauty of the bond with horses, and the Compton Cowboys are showing us exactly how it’s done.”
Dedicated To Giving Back
Through a partnership with Noelle Floyd to help promote The Compton Cowboys’ work and founding members, Corro donated custom leather halters and nameplates to the other key members of The Compton Cowboys, the horses. But, Corro doesn’t want to stop there and has launched a give-back program to allow all Corro customers to get involved.
