About Vaquero Gathering
Visit the Fort Worth Stockyards for the American Paint Horse Association’s inaugural annual Vaquero Gathering to celebrate and pay homage to the Vaquero on October 8- 10, 2021. Attend three APHA Vaquero performances that showcase the history, horsemanship, culture and tradition of the early Texas cowboy and charros in the legendary Cowtown Coliseum. The performances are historical theatre with the paint horse as the center attraction with live mariachi selections that both accompany and celebrate vaquero traditions. These unique presentations deliver the story behind vaquero traditions and offer tremendous educational value about Texas.
