Vaqueros developed on the expansive cattle ranchos of Central California during the Spanish/Mexican Colonial period. They blended classic European horsemanship and the ‘rough and ready’ riding style of early California ranchers which evolved into a distinctive style of apparel, tack, saddles and other unique equine equipment.

All proceeds from the Vaquero Show benefit the non-profit Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum and Carriage House in its mission to collect, preserve and share the rich history of the Santa Ynez Valley and to tell the early western transportation story. The Vaquero Show is a community event, sponsored, in part, by the Santa Ynez Valley Hotel Association (, museum members and local business supporters.
