Museum. Th exhibit focused on the rancho era from 1821 to 1850,

“when vaquero horsemanship reined supreme,” and also on the

ways that local enthusiasts maintain a connection to that era by

participating in Old Spanish Days events in Santa Barbara—especially

El Desfile Historico, which the exhibit labeled “the largest equestrian

parade in the country.”

Joe De Yong was represented in the exhibit by a pair of batwing

chaps from the 1930s, decorated and signed by the artist with his

exhibit—it was (and still is) on display nearby

in the museum’s new Borein gallery, which proclaims its purpose by

highlighting a quote from the artist:

“I will leave an accurate history of the West, nothing else but that.
