2013 Rendezvous to be Held in Norco - “Horsetown USA” - Southern California!!! March 22nd-24th, 2013 at the George Ingalls Equestrian Event Center

Please join us in Norco for the 2013 Annual Rendezvous, where you can experience “City Living in a Rural Atmosphere”. Norco is known for its animal keeping practices and lifestyle—where every street has a horse trail! Upon exiting the 6th St. off ramp off the 15 freeway, going east for 2 miles through Old Town Norco you will quickly see Western themed businesses, horse trails instead of sidewalks with split rail fencing and plenty of cowboys and cowgirls riding through town—taking you right up to the Ingalls Equestrian Center.

The idea of having the next Rendezvous in Southern California was initiated due to the fact that the last Rendezvous in “the South” was almost 15 years ago! This will give everyone a chance to see Norco, also fondly and appropriately nick-named “Horsetown USA”. All the units from the North to the South are joining together to plan this next year’s big event, so come prepared to learn something new, participate in a different event and have a GREAT TIME!

Within the next few months, we will be providing a flyer to include surrounding areas to explore within the region if you are traveling far and want to stay in the area to horse camp and/or want to visit surrounding regions and plan a vacation around also coming to the Rendezvous. Norco is less than 1 hour to local beaches, wine country in Temecula, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Hollywood, as well as less than 2 hours from local mountains, Palm Springs, deserts and San Diego. There are plenty of day-ride trips to take if you are planning on bringing your equines, including the Hidden Valley Wildlife Wilderness Area adjacent to Norco.

Friday night entertainment will be provided by Dave Stamey, very well-known cowboy entertainer.

In 2010 True West Magazine named him Best Living Western Solo Musician... For more info go to:!

Plans are being made for selling VIP seats, so be looking for this opportunity when you receive your 2013 BCHC Rendezvous registration packet. It will be a Great deal!
