27th Annual Vaquero Show and Sale


Posted: Saturday, November 5, 2011

Santa Ynez, CA -

The public is invited to attend the 27h annual Vaquero Show & Sale Celebration from Friday, November 11 through Sunday, November 13, 2011 honoring 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.

A schedule of events is available at: HERE.

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, collectibles and out-of-print and rare books.



The 2011 Honored Vaqueros are Bill and Chuck King, long time cattle ranchers and owners of the King Brothers Cattle Company in Los Alamos, California (far right).

Pat Roberts has been named 2011 Honored Vaquera Artist (right).

All proceeds from the Vaquero Show benefit the non-profit Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum in its mission to collect, preserve and share the rich history of the Santa Ynez Valley. Information and advanced ticket sales for the Preview Party, Gala Vaquero Dinner and Vaquero Show weekend are available at the Museum, 3596 Sagunto Street, online at www.santaynezmuseum.org or by calling 805-688-7889.
