NAPA VALLEY HORSEMEN'S ASSOCIATION
Located at the gateway to the world famous Napa Valley Wine Country, Napa Valley Horsemen's Association (NVHA) is the oldest horse association in California.
Founded in 1939 under the direction of first Chairman, Judge David Wright, the Napa Valley Horsemen's Association moved to its current location in 1948.The NVHA property today consists of nearly 32 acres, with a clubhouse, two arenas, arena office/concession stand, restrooms, and a 20-stall barn.
Napa Mustang Days combines an adoption of wild horses and burros gathered off public lands by the Bureau of Land Management, training demonstrations by wild horse experts, and a Saturday afternoon showcase featuring equine entertainment.
This event is held every two years, and as you can imagine it involves lots of volunteers. Our next event is in 2017.
