Vince Bruce

Not so much a collaboration as one man, from the UK embracing the US western lifestyle. Sadly no longer with us Vince whose mother Penny still lives a stones throw from me in the UK is one of those people who it is a priviledge and an honour to know as being so typical of her generation.

Championship and Rope and Whip Master.
