Scenes from the Ranch Cow Work session on Thursday nights:

Our Second English / Western show of the year was Sunday July 15th.   Perfect weather again!!!
A BIG thank you to our volunteers Kimberly Fishman and Gordon Gildroy for judging and to Karen Kilian for announcing and everyone who pitched in and helped set up and put away the jumps and trail obstacles!
Our next English Western Show will be November 4th.  
The show scheduled for August 26th has been cancelled due to too many other events that weekend! 

We offered a parent's lead line class this time.  Two fathers and one mother braved the class... and their daughters were so proud!

Current Arena status: 

The Main Arena is open unless there is an arena rental
so always check the club calendar before hauling in! 

If your horse creates ruts or divots in the arena when turned out or while riding,

 please rake and smooth out the footing before leaving.  

Also, don’t forget to pick up any manure to keep our arena clean!

Reminder, you must carry your membership card when on the NHI grounds.

For everyone's safety All Dogs must be kept on a leash with the exception of the caretaker's dogs.  

Novato Horsemen has been a part of the Marin County community since 1942 and was incorporated in 1945. It co-sponsored Novato's original "Western Weekend Parade & Rodeo" until 1978, which was the largest attended affair in Novato. The club is currently one of the largest horsemen associations in California but unfortunately, it is also one of the last remaining active horse clubs in a county which once hosted many barns and stables. As land values skyrocket, Novato Horsemen members strive to withstand "progress" to keep Novato and Marin County's horse heritage alive for future generations of children and adults.

The club, which consists of over 300 senior and junior members from the five surrounding Northern Bay Area counties, currently participates in a variety of cattle events, trail rides, and social affairs, as well as horsemanship education at the Horsemen's own facility. Horse owner or not, most activities are open to all within the community. Membership dues are kept low so anyone can participate. Members also donate their time to all activities, as well as maintaining the clubhouse facilities, arenas and grounds.
