On June 7, 2012, the California Senate voted to award the third Saturday in July as National Day of the Cowboy. California became the second state in history, (Wyoming is the first) to establish the Cowboy Day in perpetuity. It is a day to recognize and celebrate the cowboy culture and pioneer heritage.

To celebrate and honor the American Cowboy, on Saturday, July 28, National Day of the Cowboy, Rowell Ranch Rodeo, a non-profit organization will host a free Cowboy Education Day. Participants will learn about cowboy culture and western heritage. Participants will see displays from saddle makers, horse shoeing, Chuck Wagon cooking, and Dutch oven cooking. The arena will feature dog and horse demonstrations. Contact Allison Batteate at 925-455755 or RGCAllison @yahoo.com to register (if you do not register, we cannot guarantee free lunch and gift). Cowboy Education Day Check In is at 9:00am and program begins at 9:30 sharp – ending at 12:30.
