27th annual Vaquero Show & Sale

November 11-13, 2011

The 27th annual Vaquero Show & Sale celebrates 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 and blended classic European horsemanship with the ‘rough and ready' riding style of early California ranchers. The Vaquero developed a distinctive style that is readily recognizable in Vaquero apparel, tack, saddles and other items of the era.

A highlight of the weekend celebration is the gathering of noted artisans and collectors from throughout the western United States displaying and selling hand-tooled leather saddles, braided Vaquero-styled riatas, custom boots, bridles, reins and other Vaquero inspired horse tack as well as quality Western art, apparel, memorabilia and collectibles.
