Sell-out crowds are expected for Del Mar International horse show events, and advance ticket purchasing is highly recommended. West Palms Events has announced that tickets for the Del Mar International are now available. Adding interest to the popular show will be the Charity Woof Cup, presented by the San Diego U-T, and the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Del Mar on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 6:45PM! West Palms suggest those interested in attending order their tickets in advance to reserve seats, VIP Lounge or private boxes.

The Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Del Mar is part of the prestigious Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League and is one of only seven World Cup™ Qualifiers held on the West Coast of North America. This exciting competition draws top equestrians both nationally and internationally, all endeavoring to qualify for the prestigious 2017 World Cup™  Finals, to be held this year in the U.S in Omaha, Neb. From famed Olympic athletes to talented up-and-comers, the Del Mar International is the place to cheer on riders and horses as they take on some of today’s most challenging courses on their way to World Cup glory.

The crowd-pleasing Charity Woof Cup event, supporting multiple charities as the festivities, features a well-known grand prix rider and their equine partner, paired with a handler and an agility dog.  Competing against the clock, horse, dog and humans must work together to complete a relay course, beating the time to come out on top. Last year, this event had the crowd on its feet.

Come cheer on the Compton Jr. Posse team, proudly sponsored by Jo Cho Astani, as it raises money for “Keeping Kids On Horses and Off the Streets.” The Compton Jr. Posse (CJP) was developed to provide inner-city youth with year round after school alternatives to the lure of gang and drug lifestyles. For over 20 years, the Compton Jr. Posse has given inner city kids hope by teaming them with horses. Through these equestrian activities, the youth develop responsibility, discipline and self-esteem. They have helped three generations of youth go college, the military and into business ownership. CJP’s award-winning program has given inner city kids a framework for success by teaming them with horses and highly skilled instructors such as Olympic Gold Medalist Will Simpson. Students learn to set and achieve both academic and career goals. There can be no better investment in their future. See the ad on page 61, and call 310-632-1247.

In addition to Saturday night’s event, West Palms Events invites everyone to the Shelter to Soldier’s Fourth Annual Benefit. The charity “Saves Lives, Two at a Time” by giving shelter dogs a new mission in life by training them to be service dogs for veterans, at no cost to the veteran. The fundraiser will be Friday, Oct. 21, and you can find information and purchase tickets by visiting www.sheltertosoldier.org. Visit www.jumpdelmar.com. See ad on page 60.
