classes

At Pendleton Cattle Barons Weekend, we believe in celebrating all that western heritage is and recognize how well-made, quality gear makes a difference for the working rancher, cowboy, and cowgirl. Our instructors not only showcase premiere craftsmanship and artistry, but they are here to teach you. 

Join us in learning new skills or strengthening existing ones in an effort to carry on the traditions of the western way of life. Celebrate artistry, craftsmanship, and the hardworking cowboy and cowgirl.
