Andalusian World Cup takes center stage in Las Vegas

From the Horsetrader sales staff - September 1st, 2016 - Ingate Column

InGate graphicThe Andalusian World Cup, the largest Iberian Horse event in North America, will fill the South Point Casino & Spa in Las Vegas, Nev., Sept. 21-24. Out of a dream to create a world-class event that unites all Iberian breeds and disciplines, the Andalusian World Cup was born. The event has a unique format, hosting WEIAUSA Working Equitation, PSL (Lusitano) classes, PRE (ANCCE) classes, dressage, dressage sport horse in hand, and Andalusian World Cup halter and performance classes that are open to all Iberian Horses (both pure and part-bred), regardless of the association into which they are registered. Championship, supreme championship and sweepstakes classes will offer significant prizes, such as saddles and prize money to participants. Entries for the show, which opened on May 1, closed Sept 1. There are limited sponsorship and advertising (show program) opportunities available for corporate sponsors, as well as individuals and breeders. These sponsorships sell out quickly and offer significant perks, so reserve early to avoid disappointment. Be sure to check out the ad on page 13, and for information or questions about the show or sponsorship opportunities, contact info@andalusianworld.com.

The annual University of California Davis Horse Day is fast approaching! Featured at the event, which will take place Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Animal Science Horse Barn facility, will be a hands-on approach to a variety of equine topics. It’s a day filled with hands-on workshops dedicated to continuing education for the horse owner and enthusiast, and it gives you the chance to interact with the animals, talk to the experts and be more involved with the materials. A special presentation by Dr. Robert Miller will occur during the boxed lunch offered by the famous Animal Science Meat Lab, and at the end of the day, make sure not to miss the Knights of Mayhem jousting show! Whether your interests lie with reproduction, nutrition or emergency aid, there is sure to be something to attract you to Horse Day! Proceeds from the educational workshop support the Animal Science Department’s Equine Management Program which provides hands-on experience for students preparing for careers in horse industry or for further studies in veterinary medicine.
