Kathy Gomes Freikert Memorial Cutting...August 20, 2016_Vintage Cutting Horse Assoiciation, August Event at Petaluma RIding and Driving Club

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!
