Come cut in the beautiful heart of Sonoma County’s wine country. Show your horse where the weather is mild, the cows are good, the ground is soft, and the company is superior. Join our clinics and mini series to practice, show, and win! We offer events year round, both on and off your trusty steeds. With an array of clinicians and judges, there is always something new to be learned and implemented in and out of the show pen. Don’t forget to sign up for our FRESH and rerun cattle classes held throughout each show! Hope to see you all soon!
Our 2017 shows are held on the 3rd Saturday of each month, May through October at PRDC.

Dear Members & Sponsors,
Spring is here, our show season is just around the corner and I am looking forward to seeing everyone again and am hoping to meet and welcome our new members very soon. Our board has been working diligently to bring new ideas together that will improve our mini-series and continue to bring growth to our club.
I am very excited to announce for the 2017 show season, VCHA will again be giving a saddle to our High-Point, Non-Pro rider. In addition, we will also be giving custom chaps to our combined Open/$25,000 Novice Horse.
Important show changes for this year – we have reserved Sunday, June 18th for show number three. Our show calendar will be as follows: Show #1 – May 20th; Show #2 – June 17th; Show #3 – June 18th; Show #4 – July 15th; Show #5 – August 19th and Show #6 – September 16th. We will utilize our October 21st date as either a rain date, tie breaker show or possibly the Just For Fun Cutting. With regards to our June show being a 2-day event, if you need overnight accommodations for your horse, please let us know as soon as possible, and we will work on overnight stalls. In addition, we will be hosting a BBQ on Saturday night, June 17th.
The board is also in the planning stages for additional playdays and/or clinics to be held later in the year. There will be more information coming in future newsletters.
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our show announcer for 2017, Domenick Weaver. Domenick comes to VCHA through Alameda Fire Department, he has been a good friend for many years and has the talent, experience and expertise to run a successful show. Thank you, Dom, for joining VCHA!
On April 22nd, VCHA board members will be hosting a promotional table in support of our mini-series at Redwood Empire’s Spring Show which will be held at Rolling Hills Casino.
This is looking to be VCHA’s best year yet and with the continued support of all our members as well as our sponsors, will improve the strength of our club once again.
Wishing everyone a safe and successful show year
Eric Alianza, 2017 President
