Mason is a cowboy through and through

COWBOY WAY: Mason Tait is living a cowboy way of life.

PERHAPS born a century too late, Mason Tait is a cowboy through and through.

Standing at well over six foot tall, with a cap and sunglasses on, he may not look like your typical bow legged John Wayne, but don’t let that fool you.

He has ridden them, shod them and cared for them – because for this 21-year-old, it is all about the horses.

Coming from a family of horse lovers, Mason’s first foray into horsemanship professionally was back as a young teenager, working as a general hand for trainer Gerald Egan.
