Vaquero Heritage Video
When you spend three days with five trainers, two cameras, and an audio recorder you come home with a ton of material. This I’ve collated into the Vaquero Heritage Video.
First, I need to get this out of the way. The event benefited the Wild Horses of Oak Creek and there were many opportunities to donate. There was a silent auction that had a lot of nice things. Talulah Catahoulas was donating a puppy from a recent litter. I had just seen a photo of these fascinating dogs on the Friends of Weatherford Shelter Pets Facebook page. After spending some time talking to the breeder, I thought this would make a great addition to our household. Our 13 year old Aussie past away last July and we had room at the Inn. I place my bid a couple of times and the only thing more challenging than coming home with three days of media to edit, is to try and do it with an eight week old pup. Well, I survived. More importantly, so did he. His name is Buster and he is growing like a weed.
Back to the Vaquero Heritage Video. These five trainers put in a bunch of time to help these horses. They had received one older horse 3 to 4 months ago and they now had one to train in three 90 minute sessions. There was some prizes and prize money on the line. There was also some Vaquero pride.
There will be extended interviews with the trainers, organizers, judges, and even one of the people who purchased a horse at the end of the event in an upcoming episode of The Whoa Podcast. Look for it soon.
Jeremy and Brandie Dunn along with Diana and Steven Palmer did a wonderful job of organizing this event. Tehachapi is a wonderful venue. We look forward to seeing them next year.
