From Horsetrader staff reports - February 16th, 2012 - Show & Event News

POMONA — The Sierra Empire Arabian Horse Association annual show continued its growth phase for the third straight year during its Jan. 27-29 event at the Fairplex.

The SEAHA took over the winter January slot vacated when the Whittier Lions suspended its traditional Southern California competition after 2009.

“Our show is up in numbers again, which is just fantastic,” said SEAHA Secretary Sheri Odom.

Jane Brown from Oregon judged the event, which featured 188 horses competing in a full slate of classes — some with as many as 18 exhibitors.

Jacqueline Phan of Temecula rode Valerian Fantasy+/ to the Adult Amateur High Point honors, and Kristy Shiota of Chino Hills took ROL Cymply Hot++/ to the Junior High Point crown.

The Judges Choice Award went to Darlin Lil, a Half-Arabian trail horse ridden by Lou Roper for owner Susan Cavanagh of Bakersfield.

The USEF “A”-rated show served as a qualifying event for Region 1, Pacific Slopes, Youth Canadian and U.S. National Championships.
