Carriage House: The Carriage House served to shelter horse drawn vehicles and also sometimes housed stalls and a hayloft to store feed for horses. It is a predecessor of the family garage for the storage of automobiles and sometimes have been converted for this more modern use. Large doors, either hinged or slider and few windows are characteristic features. A carriage house maybe hard to distinguish from other smaller scale shelters for animals or wagons. Carriage houses are usually located on the same side of the road as the house and are often more ornamented with architectural trim than barns and other outbuildings.
Workshop: A Workshop is a small frame structure that could serve many purposes. Many forms of artisan craftwork could be done in such a Workshop from blacksmithing to broom making or furniture and equipment repair. Workshops were usually located close to the road with plentiful windows to light the work space. Some workshops have chimneys to accommodate a stove or forge and large doors to permit access for machinery or horses.
Horse Barn: Horse barns contain box stalls for horse and a tack room for saddles, harness and equipment. Larger barns often have stalls arranged in rows with an aisle between them. Some have extended roofs to provide shade. Divided Dutch doors or window in each stall are another characteristic feature. Most freestanding horse barns found in Pennsylvania postdate 1960 since historically horses were stabled in a larger barn with other cattle or in a carriage house. Horse barns often appear on Plain Sect farms and on farms where horses are boarded or bred.

For many horse owners, trail riding through the countryside on their mounts is a favorite fresh-air activity. Equestrian communities often have a miles-long trail network located on their property or offer convenient access to bridle paths that meander through nearby state parks, national forests and wildlife preserves.

Ranch woman and photojournalist Evelyn Cameron wrote about her transition to buckaroo life in Montana and Wyoming in the 1880s. For some twenty years past, there have been cowgirls on Western ranches who are the feminine counterparts of cowboys, riding in similar saddles, on similar horses, for the purpose of similar duties, which they do, in fact, efficiently perform.
The origins of the cowboy tradition come from Spain, beginning with the hacienda system of medieval Spain. This style of cattle ranching spread throughout much of the Iberian peninsula and later was imported to the Americas. Both regions possessed a dry climate with sparse grass, thus large herds of cattle required vast amounts of land to obtain sufficient forage. The need to cover distances greater than a person on foot could manage gave rise to the development of the horseback-mounted vaquero. 041b061a72
