Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Founded in 1930, Los Rancheros Visitadores, also known as the 'Visiting Ranchers,' is a national men's riding group who commemorate the old ranchero tradition of riding from ranch to ranch to help during the annual springtime cattle drive. Every year, the group takes a week-long trek on horseback and horse drawn wagons through the Santa Ynez Valley and to the Mission Santa Ines to receive blessings. Membership into the group is by invitation only and has included such notables as Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope, and Walt Disney.
Photograph caption dated May 11, 1957 reads, "Valley members of Los Rancheros Visitadores look over helicopter which is keeping track of 500 members from all over U.S. who are on eight-day ride in Santa Barbara County which ends today. From left are Edward Furer, Burbank; Marvin E. Whiteman, San Fernando, and Norman Larson, Van Nuys." Members of Los Rancheros Visitadores are pictured at the Santa Ine´s Mission located at 1760 Mission Drive in Solvang.
