I had no idea how much work goes into a horse show, but it was all worth every drop of sweat when the lead line tot class got to stop and greet the judge and get their blue ribbons.

The Judge for our the first event of our Hunter/Jumper/Equitation Schooling Show Series will be Kevin McGinn from Los Angeles California.
Kevin McGinn arrived in Los Angeles in 1990, and has had a thriving training and showing business ever since. He has spent much time in Europe learning from top German riders and importing many successful horses to America — most notably Stonebridge Alias, Levantos and Kasper, one of the winningest large pony hunters of the last decade. Kevin is pleased to be training where his West Coast career began, at the "center" of riding: the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
Kevin is a sought after clinician who produces clinics in Southern California and many locations around the United States. He is a contributing writer whose equestrian articles have appeared in The California Horse Trader, California Riding, and Bay Area Equestrian Online. He also has hosted Facebook's wildly popular Trivia Night /Q+A on the "Judge My Ride" page, reaching as many as 1 million readers per month. Kevin also has been a guest commentator on the live webcast Showjumping Unplugged TV covering "A" circuit Grand Prix competition from venues such as HITS Thermal, Blenheim Equisports, and The Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
Is it really that time again? Yes, yes it is. It is time for the Equestrian Games!
This year disciplines will include Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting, Reigning, Para-Dressage, Polo and Horse-Ball. Which ones are you going to watch? Which top riders or countries are you rooting for?
The last World Equestrian Games, in 2010, were held in Kentucky. 2010 was the first year that the Games were held outside Europe. 2010 was also the first Games in which all championship rounds were held at the same location. At the 2010 World Equestrian Games, 57 countries from around the world where represented by 800 riders and their mounts. This year, athletes from over 70 counties will compete in 8 disciplines.
A personal favorite of Hope Haven Equestrian Center, Beezie Madden will be back from her injury just in time for the Games this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOHOZj_FNA0
