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.

President’s message:

Dear Members & Sponsors,

I know we are all happy about the sunshine and longer days – that means more riding and more cutting!

May 18th is our first show, it is literally knocking on our door! Changes that the show committee has made that I am excited to announce is that EVERY CLASS will be jackpotted, in addition to offering year end awards.  We have also implemented for this year two ranch classes, the Ranch Limited Rider class – rider earnings not to have exceeded $250 and the Ranch Limited Horse class – horse earnings not to have exceeded $1000. In doing this we hope to attract those riders that need more show experience or horses that are coming up but need some show experience before going in the high level classes will have that opportunity.  

I am working with PRDC President Charlie Thompson to ensure that our show grounds are up and ready for us.  PRDC will be hosting work parties on March 30st and May 4th to spruce up the club after our wet winter.  I encourage any of you that have some spare time on either of those days to come down and lend a hand.  Many hands make light work, and it all benefits both clubs to have the grounds looking and running its best.  Sand will be delivered before our first show so that our ground is at optimum for cutting

We will be hosting our first practice of the year on Saturday, April 6th at Wollenberg’s Wagon Wheel Ranch – look for the flyer in the newsletter/website.  As always, we are always so appreciative of the Wollenberg Family for their hospitality and support.  We will have another practice at Wagon Wheel on Mother’s Day, so look for those details soon.

I would like to thank our sponsors this month – Wine Country Ranch Equipment, Martin Ranch Supply & Frizelle Enos Feeds.  Their support is instrumental to our awards program. If you would like to sponsor VCHA please feel free to contact myself or any Board Member.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
