Horsetown USA Norco Horse Affair
Do you love horse expos? There is a new one on the West Coast, the Norco Horse Affair. Norco is a city in Riverside County, California that, by city ordinance “shall reflect a desired Western theme”. In 2006, Norco received a federal trademark to call their home Horsetown USA. The streets are set up with horse trails. Storefronts and restaurants have hitching posts and pens for people who ride through town.
Fran Klovstad owns Thrifty Horse in Norco. She teamed up with Liza Rogers of FirstTime Events to create the Norco Horse Affair, October 6-8 at the George Ingalls Equestrian Event Center. They have a full schedule of clinicians, trainers, and presenters for the whole family. Everything from dressage to western, and trick roping to freestyle and liberty, will be on display. On Saturday night, October 7, there will be a Ladies Rodeo Night and there are plans for an All American Horse Competition.
Some of the musical acts include Christopher Thomas, featuring his single Rodeo Kid, the Sugar Daddies Barbershop Quartet, the Raining Horseshoe Band, and Texas House Party.
The best part is, they are charging $15 for a car load. So pack up as many friends as you can into one vehicle and plan on a weekend of horses and horsemanship.
