InGate graphicFiesta Charity Horse Show and Spectacular is dedicated to raising awareness and much needed funds for cancer research in order to help find a cure for this disease and give people long lives, as well as to honor our nation’s military families. Many local and national organizations have benefitted from funds raised through Fiesta, including the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Fiesta brings together the special healing power of horses and people.

The Fiesta Charity Spectacular, coordinated by Asman & Associates, will once again be held at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center on Saturday, April 30.  The Charity Horse Show runs from Thursday April 28 to to Sunday, May 1, featuring in an open horse show free to the public open dressage, western dressage, Andalusian, Friesian, Lusitano, open gaited, Peruvian Paso, P.R.E., Saddlebred, working equitation and open classes. The Extravaganza will feature an “Equestrian and Musical Spectacular”, a  performance that promises to be a dazzling display of inimitable magnificence, elegance, and agility of Spanish and other horse breeds, highlighted with music and dance.  The evening will also include a wonderful variety of celebrities, vendors, food and raffles. Fiesta, now in its 18th year, continues to exhibit the important role it plays in integrating communities by honoring horses, music and people steeped in rich history and tradition.

Performatz wants to make your horse comfortable, healthier, and happier — whether recovering from an injury, involved in sport competition, or on the show circuits. That’s why, as a medical foam company, it developed equine mat solutions. The lightweight 4’ x 6’ mat weighs in at only 30 pounds and can be easily transported to the trailer or show stall. The antimicrobial, non-toxic, non-porous mat can be easily lifted for hygienic cleaning. With a thickness of 1½ in., it delivers extra cushion, shock-absorption and durability. The thicker mat also provides more insulation.  While every mat manufacturer offers slightly different features, Vet Equine Mats is designed to provide the most comfort and hygiene. The underside provides better drainage for horse waste with large button support. They are not slippery when wet, either. A manner of pattern formed into the surface of the mats promotes traction. The traction on a mat is the ability of the weight of the horse to sink into the mat and prevent her from slipping. Performatz are produced by Value Foam, Inc., manufacturers of medical and veterinary polymer foam and mat products. See the ad on page 27 and call 800-788-1358 for more info.
