The Temecula Cowgirl Color Guard was formed in 2013 after winning First Place Equestrian Division in Old Town Temecula's Independence Day Parade. In 2014 our team was gifted the great honor of being the FIRST non-profit, community color guard group to be gifted our personal City of Temecula Flag. Our flag was presented formally at City Hall Chambers by the honorable Mayor Maryanne Edwards. In early 2018 we won First Place Mounted Color Guard Division at the “60th Anniversary” of San Juan Capistrano’s PRESTIGIOUS Swallows Day Parade. Then in June 2018 we won the First Place Mounted Color Guard Trophy at the 100th Annual Beaumont Cherry Festival Parade.
Watch for us riding in community events such as parades, special events, horse shows, polo matches, grand openings, school events, Western Days, etc. We offer drill team routines or static Color Guard presentations, depending on the venue. Our team practices monthly at the famous Galway Downs Equestrian and Event Center located in the HEART of Wine Country.
We have practice flags to loan. Please introduce and desensitize your horse to basic flag work with your sponsor BEFORE you join a practice session. Horses must be able to tolerate close contact with other horses without kicking or biting, in addition to high sensory situations. Members must have transportation and be able to join a bi-monthly practice. Junior riders (14-18 yrs.) are welcome to join, as long as a parent remains present at all practices and events.
The Temecula Cowgirl Color Guard is a sub-group of the Temecula Eq-Wine Riders, a California State Horsemen Association Member Club #M1546-1, whose mission is to support, utilize, protect and preserve Southern California's equestrian parks and trails. Our by-laws are listed on the website.
