Appaloosas kick off their 2011 show season at the HITS Desert Horse Park Jan. 8-9 in Thermal for a weekend four-judge show. Horses from all over California as well as out of state competed in an array of classes to showcase the all-around abilities of their colorful, talented Appaloosas. Saturday exhibitors competed in halter, showmanship western and trail classes, while Sunday brought on the hunter-in-hand, English, saddle seat and hunter hack classes. The two days were full of new faces in the show arena, both exhibitors, and horses. The show brought out enough people to allow for many Appaloosas and their owners to qualify for the ApHC World Show. The winner of Saturday’s Champion of Champion Halter class was Cool to a Te, handled by Steve Dalporto of Brentwood. Sunday held the Champion of Champion Hunter in hand class, won by Hands off my Hottie, handled by DeeAnna Mcbride of Riverside. Other Hi-point awards are awarded to youth divisions, non-pro divisions, along with hi-points to western pleasure, hunter under saddle and all-around horses as well.

Closer to Cavalia

The 49 Cavalia horses arrive Jan. 13 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center for their upcoming performances in Southern California. After a nice break following their San Francisco performances, they are eager to return to work in preparation for the Premier Feb. 19 in Burbank. A short performance of horses at Liberté was given to the welcome committee of media and local equestrians who came out for the afternoon. Organizers say ticket sales have been brisk and a sell-out likely. See ad on Page 79 for more information.
