Throwback Thursday: the Cow Palace
Throwback Thursday isn’t always about a horse. Sometimes, it’s fun to remember a place and time that is near and dear to many people and had a prominent place in history. Today, we remember the heyday of the Cow Palace. While the Cow Palace is still in use today and home of the Grand National Rodeo, the stock horse shows of decades ago are almost starting to fade from memory. Most of the greats from that era can’t tell a story without somehow including a show at the Cow Palace, which tells how important and prestigious it was to show there.
However, that doesn’t stop us from remembering one of the hottest spots to show in not only the West Coast, but the entire country. Do you have a favorite memory of the Cow Palace?
