32nd ANNUAL VAQUERO SHOW & SALE!

 

 

Our Vaquero Show was a great success!
Thank you to all our visitors, sponsors and exhibitors.

 

The annual Vaquero Show & Sale is a three day event that honors the lifestyle and renowned horsemanship of the California Vaquero (cowboy). Vaqueros developed on the expansive cattle ranchos of Central California during the Spanish/Mexican Colonial period. They blended classic European horsemanship and the ‘rough and ready’ riding style of early California ranchers which evolved into a distinctive style of apparel, tack, saddles and other unique horse equipment.
