Cow Palace Dates Have Changed; Other News


The Grand National Rodeo & Horse Show (Cow Palace), San Francisco, California, announces a change of dates to April 5-7, 2007. This is a special, truly unique, horse show experience for Saddlebred, Hackney, and Friesian exhibitors. Ten-thousand people attend the rodeo performances and will be there watching the horse show as well.


Several special incentives are being offered:


  • All who are showing in the parade class will get their entry fee paid for and a free stall.

§         Exhibitors showing at BOTH Cow Palace and Monterey with the same horse will be entered in a drawing for $2,000 while trainers will receive an entry in their own raffle for a flat screen TV for each horse that shows at both.

Steve Allred, Winston-Salem, N.C., will be judging Saddlebreds, Friesians and Hackney ponies.
