A Cowboy’s Honor Ride is a powerful tribute to help bring some healing to our community that recently suffered the loss of Deputy Brian Ismael. 

Nearly 200 riders are expected to participate in the procession that begins at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds and makes its way down Placerville Drive to Historic Main Street.  

Roughly 300 horses walked through the streets of Sacramento this summer in remembrance of officer O’Sullivan.

Organizer Norman Nather will give a brief statement at noon along with members of Law Enforcement followed, to be followed by an invocation.  

Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 12 PM – 3 PM PST - Placerville.

The procession will leave the fairgrounds at 12:30pm and is expected to arrive on Historic Main Street between 1:00pm and 1:30pm, circle around the Druid Monument and return the same route as they came.  

" We ride to help bring healing to a community who has recently had a Police Officer murdered. These rides allow both riders and spectators a way to participate in elevating and unifying a recently shattered community. Together we can make a difference."
