LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lake County Horse Council will present the inaugural Fiesta of the Horse on Sunday, July 1.
The event, which starts at 3 p.m., will be held at Rancho de la Fuente, 2290 Soda Bay Road, between Lakeport and Kelseyville.
This is an entertainment put on by your horsey friends and neighbors, unlike anything else you've seen in Lake County.
There will be musical acts involving dancing horses performing individually or in groups (and even a horse dancing with a human!), the Clear Lake Junior Horsemen Drill Team, a Grand Entry with the National Anthem sung from horseback, exciting equestrian sports such as jousting and "La Garrocha" (think of it as "horse pole dancing"), exotic breed demos, colorful costumes and a Wild West comedy act featuring legendary sharp-shooter Annie Oakley, all packed into 90 exciting minutes.
There is no admission charge for this fun, family-oriented event.
Beginning at 2 p.m., the public is invited to visit to the vendor and information booth area, and start getting settled into see the show which starts at 3 p.m.
Some chairs and awnings are provided to shade the audience, but since the crowd might be large, consider bringing your own lawn chairs or umbrellas for shade.
Please do not bring dogs (or other animals). Food and drink will be available for purchase, but there will be no alcohol consumption outside of the Rancho de la Fuente's bar area.
