Langer Equestrian Group/ LEG Up News | Los Angeles Hunter Jumper Association - LAHJA | United States Hunter Jumper Association - USHJA
We are excited to announce the National Sunshine Preview (Oct. 23 - 25) will be the first in a series of new shows, co-produced by Desert International Horse Park and LEG Shows & Events, focused on hunter/equitation riders up to 3’ and jumpers up to 1.20m. The California Reining Horse Association (CRHA) Challenge (Oct. 20 - 25) will run concurrently with National Sunshine Preview and is the first reining event to be held at DIHP. The Challenge is one of the biggest reining competitions in California and DIHP is excited to see reiners “slide” into the desert.
“We’re enthusiastic about creating a new hunter/jumper event which will bring a new group of riders to the horse park with National Sunshine Preview’s focus on lower height classes and a more affordable price point. The show plans on pricing stalls at $175 for the week, class fees at $40, and an office fee of $50. And now with the addition of the LAHJA medal finals, we’ll have even more to offer hunter/jumper riders.”
“These two events bring together two disciplines in a fun, casual weekend. There will be a crossover team event, a dinner social, and more fun activities throughout the weekend,” noted Hankin.
“With COVID-19 limiting activities in Los Angeles County, this gives us a great opportunity to move the needle on producing affordable and accessible competitions for the West Coast equestrian community,” shared Marnye Langer, Managing Director and CFO of The Langer Group.
Los Angeles Hunter Jumper Association - LAHJA will also be moving their Medal Finals Extravaganza, featuring all seven of their 2020 LAHJA Medal Finals, to the National Sunshine Preview. “We understand how important the medal finals are to our members, and we want to do everything possible to be able to safely host the finals this year,” expressed Kay Altheuser, President of LAHJA. “We believe that moving the finals to DIHP is the best decision for everyone involved.”
Information and prize lists for the National Sunshine Preview will be available on the Desert International Horse Park website and the LEG website before the end of September. Information for The Challenge will be on DIHP’s website and the CRHA website.
