Welcome to MHCowboyLife.com, the official web site of the Medicine Hat Cowboy Poetry Foundation.
Our goal is to preserve, promote and perform cowboy poetry and western music to celebrate the history, traditions and lifestyle of the cowboy and rural living in Medicine Hat and area.
We hold gatherings of cowboy music and spoken word, in person and online. We collect stories and share them on our web site, on social media and at our live shows.
