Hey there, Hesperia and High Desert! Well, I would just like to say what a great turn out for the Hesperia Horsemen Gymkhana. We had new faces along with some returning members. We hope to continue keep growing and are looking forward to a wonderful exciting year.

The Hesperia Horsemen will be hosting their gymkhanas at the Val Shearer Equestrian Center, Lime Street Park. Come and join them on the third Saturday of each month March through November with the exception in June because of the Hesperia Rocking Bar h Rodeo.

Hesperia Horsemen will change the June gymkhana to the Friday night, one week before the Rodeo, which will be June 8 as a kick-off for the rodeo. This gymkhana will be a Silver Shoot Out Show (buckle show). Open to members and non-members wishing to compete for a buckle at the end of the night. This show will have open classes only no novice classes.

Hesperia Horsemen Open Show just had their first horse show of the year on Saturday, May 5th.

All of the shows will be double judged and double points with only three more shows to go. The next shows will be held June 2, Aug. 4, and Oct. 6 at the Val Shearer Equestrian Center at Lime Street Park.
