Held April 4-7 at Showpark in Del Mar, you’ll be able to show to eight judges in four days – all classes are double judged! In honor of celebrating the Easter holiday, the show will start on Wednesday and conclude on Saturday. Now you can double your showing and double your fun – saving both money and time.

The University of Southern California Equestrian Team will hold its 6th Annual Dinner Dance Fundraiser for the 2012 season on Saturday, March 24. The event will be held at the Paddock Riding Club in Los Feliz, under the stars and surrounded by the horses. The amazing Country Western Band Jimi Nelson and the Drifting Cowboys will get the crowd in the swing of things with a little two-step action and their own brand of horse play! Plus, the 20-member competitive equestrian club team will show off their first-place jumping talents. The money raised will go toward the team’s maintenance and show expenses that include leasing, grooming supplies, tack, veterinary care, coaches, team events and insurance. “These girls take a full course load and must keep up their grade average to stay on the team,” says USC Team Coach Karen Perlow. “After classes they come out to the barn, train, groom the horses and muck the stalls. It takes incredible dedication and very hard work.” For the past five years, the USC Equestrian Team has placed first in the region in top competitions including Zone Championship at Stanford University, University of Oregon and Montana State University. For more info about this event, call Justine Schmidt at (323) 428-3067 and see their ad on page 77. For more info on the program, visit www-scf.usc.edu/~equestrn/
