In 1997, seven friends teamed together and founded the non-profit Western Film and TV appreciation organization, The Reel Cowboys.

Originally comprised of entertainment industry types; actors, directors, producers, stunt men and women and other behind the camera people, its' aim was to keep alive the wholesome good values and morals most often portrayed in the American Western drama.

Goodness triumphing over evil and the Code of the West* were in abundance in the golden years of television Westerns and throughout the history of classic Western films.


Over the past years, thousands of dollars have helped groups such as Women's Care Cottage, (North Hollywood), The YWCA Domestic Violence Program, (Southern California), The John Tracy Clinic (Los Angeles), Boys & Girls Town, (Nebraska), Tierra Del Sol, (Shadow Hills, Ca), Special Equestrian Riding Therapy, (Moorpark, Ca), The Burbank Temporary Aid Society and Countless Others.
Though the Code of the West was always unwritten,
here is a Code of Conduct for Cowboys & Cowgirls
  1. Live each day with honesty and courage.

  2. Take pride in your work. Always do your best.

  3. Stay curious. Study hard and learn all you can.

  4. Do what has to be done and finish what you start.

  5. Be tough, but fair.

  6. When you make a promise, keep it.

  7. Be clean in thought, word, deed, and dress.

  8. Practice tolerance and understanding of others.

  9. Be willing to stand up for what’s right.

  10. Be an excellent steward of the land and its animals.

  11. Don't inquire into a person's past. Take the measure of a man for what he is today.

  12. Never steal another man's horse. A horse thief pays with his life.

  13. Defend yourself whenever necessary.

  14. Look out for your own.

  15. Remove your guns before sitting at the dining table.

  16. Don't make a threat without expecting dire consequences.

  17. Never pass anyone on the trail without saying "Howdy".

  18. A cowboy doesn't talk much, he saves his breath for breathing.

  19. Be there for a friend when he needs you.

  20. Honesty is absolute. Your word is your bond.

  21. A handshake is more binding than a contract.

  22. Live by the "Golden Rule."
