9th Annual Early Californios Skills of the Rancho

The 9th Annual Early Californios Skills of the Rancho, hosted by the Californio Bridlehorse Association, will be October 28-30, 2022 at the Parkfield Rodeo Arena on the Historic V6 Ranch.

Building on the success of the first event in 2013 in Santa Ynez, CA, “Skills” has grown to be one of the largest gatherings of California Bridlehorse devotees. The event showcases skills needed to effectively, efficiently and safely handle livestock while preserving the horsemanship skills and traditions handed down over generations beginning with the early Californios vaqueros.

We invite your participation as a competitor, vendor, sponsor, or observer at the V6 Ranch to share with us all the appreciation we have for this style of horsemanship. Devotees, craftsmen and artisans who embrace these traditions have few places to come together. We look forward to you joining us in September, 2021.

Details of the Event will be posted here as they become available.
