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!

President’s message for May 2019:
Dear Members & Sponsors,
May is here and we are ready for our show series to begin! I’d like to remind everyone of the changes we’ve made for this year’s shows. 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. Please be sure to check the rules under the show tab on our website to familiarize yourself with any rule changes.
PRDC hosted a work party on May 4th and the facility is in top shape for our shows. Ground has been delivered and spread – our cutting pen will be at its best for our cutters. A big thank you to the VCHA members that helped at this work party, as well as the many PRDC members who did a lot of work to prepare for the season.
Our Mother’s Day practice that was held at Wollenberg’s Wagon Wheel Ranch was a great success. It was a fun day of cutting and friendship. Thank you to Heidi Thompson for organizing this event, the Wollenberg’s for their ever gracious hospitality and the members who supported this event.
As I mention every month, sponsor support is instrumental to our awards program. If you would like to sponsor VCHA please feel free to contact myself or any Board Member.
Applications are available for our Kathy Feickert Memorial Youth Award, look for the application on our website and in the newsletter.
