¡Hola y Bien Venidos!
Este es el lugar de los vaqueros oeste.
Howdy and welcome. This website is dedicated to the preservation of a particular form of horsemanship that came to the Americas from Spain and Portugal and evolved to become known as the Californio style of horsemanship. You can choose from the links below to go to the Sage Saddlery portion of the site and see our fine quality saddles and gear or to learn more about the Californio style. Thanks for coming in and hope you enjoy your visit. ¡Hasta luego!
Sage Saddlery - The online store is back up and running. You can get there by going to the Sage Saddlery homepage (clink on the link) and then following the store link found there. Lots of good stuff for sale, hope you find something you like.
Sage Horsemanship - Learn about the Californio style of horsemanship, ranch roping, good farriery and much, much more.
Upcoming events - Patrick King Horsemanship is having another "Mastering Communication Conference" Sept. 14-16, 2012. There will be a number of horsemen and women presenting their ideas and practices throughout the weekend, including myself and a fellow that is rather astounding by the name of Guy McLean, from the Land Down Under. He has an amazing troupe of horses and provides an engaging performance along with very practical horsemanship insights. I'll be there with planty of gear and doing some topic or another throughout the weekend. Come on by and talk vaquero history, ranch roping, saddles and gear or whatever. It will be a fantastic weeknd with lots of great information. Pat has an "early bird" discount program for the whole weekend package. Hope to see you there.
Drop us a line if you want to discuss a custom saddle or gear order possibility, to bring a Sage Horsemanship roping or californio horsmanshipclinic to your area (SW PA only please), to discuss an article, to seek reprint permission, comment on the site, tell me of an article topic you'd like to see... or just to say howdy!
