Charity Fundraiser at Paul Cates Stable


by Linda Landman

As most are planning to pack it up and go off in different circuits around the country, the last remaining horse shows have finished in the midst of the summer heat coming down the coast. At the end of April, Paul Cates Stable had a benefit horse show. The Royal Family Kids Camp, which helps abused foster children, was the show’s beneficiary.

This event was both interesting and successful in that it generated over $26,000 for the charity and also gave the community a chance to see the beauty and grace of the American Saddlebred.

The fundraiser was energetic and spectator friendly with face painting, live animal exhibits, live and silent auctions and the horse show keeping the crowd entertained all day long. The biggest class of the horse show was the 30-entry Stick Horse class.

Judge Karen Nalle did an outstanding job tieing the classes and creating an atmosphere that allowed exhibitors and opportunity to shine. The riders took advantage of that atmosphere and rode with determination. They had a chance to show off their horses and perfect their show ring skills.

Show officials were grateful to Lone Star Saddlebreds, the Rader family and the Gasts for joining in on the fun. In the end, hats off to Paul Cates Stable crew and the Royal Family Kids Camp volunteers who worked extremely hard for a wonderful reason!
