Night of the Horse
2013 Wild West Show!
The featured event of Western Week is the Night of the Horse show, Saturday, April 20, at 7:00PM. This is not a competition, but a wonderful themed evening with amazing equestrian acts. This event is sure to please the whole family.
Back by popular demand, The Del Mar National Horse Show Night of the Horse presents the Wild West Show!
Fashioned after the genius of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Shows, Del Mar National's Wild West Show will once again feature top entertainers and horsemen from across the nation.
Perennial favorites Tommie Turvey and Poker Joe, along with friends John Payne, the renowned One-Arm Bandit, and his herd of Bad-to-the-Bone Buffalo; Ken McMeans and the hilarious roaming 'cowboys' known as Fables of the West the Wild West Hole-in-the-Wall Gang; Roy Rogers Mounted Shooters; and the legendary Wells Fargo Stagecoach will all be here.
New to the Night of the Horse, the Gary Sandstead chuck wagon races will have you on the edge of your seat! A throwback to cowboy tradition, the wagons carried supplies and would race into town in time to prepare meals for the cowboys' arrival.
The Escondido Mounted Posse will perform a comedy skit showing how outlaws were dealt with in the Old West. Among the best in the country, Native American Hoop Dancer Eric Runningpath, and announcer Steve Lewendowski will ensure you and your family have a dazzling, fun-filled evening!
In addition, the band Herrick, which has opened shows for Kenny Chesney, Hank Williams Jr., the Zac Brown Band, and Miranda Lambert, to name a few, will perform right after the Night of the Horse performance. Check out Herrick's latest release: New Dance. Check out the Herrick sound using a player below:
