Vaqueros to hold Old Timers show May 16

The Vaqueros plan their yearly Old Timer’s Show to coincide with the beginning of Western Days! The show will be held Saturday May 16th starting at 9:00AM at The Vaqueros Park, corner of Valley Center and Lilac Roads.

What is fun about this day is that the youth of the club (for this purposes anyone under the age of 29) host the show. From collecting registration, setting up obstacles, judging and announcing they run the event.

The show features the following classes:

• Halter Class

• Showmanship

• Trotting Race

• Musical Hats

• Egg Race

• Keyhole

• Equitation Trot Poles

• Texas Barrels

• Country Pleasure w/favorite gate

• Surprise! Jack Benny Class

• Oldest Cowboy, Cowgirl and Horse

Following the show the park will host The Western Days Kick-Off, presented by the Republican Women Federated of Valley Center also on May 16th at 5:30PM.

Kids 12 and under are free! Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Adults $20, kids $10

The Kick-off entertainment will be San Diego Sam Band, along with the Lil’ Cowgirl & Cowboy Contest, Honorary Mayor Announcement (could this be The Vaqueros Candidates year? Come see if Francis the mule wins the Honorary Mayor’s race) And Dancing.
