Saddlebred Volunteers Needed for California Equine Affaire

Lexington, Kentucky - Southern California Saddlebred fans are participating in their ninth Equine Affaire© this year in Pomona, from Thursday, February 4, through Sunday, February 7.

Equine Affaire©, the nation's premiere national equine exposition and equestrian gathering, organizes four days of clinics, seminars, demonstrations and exhibits, with an attendance of over 100,000 horse enthusiasts.

The Southern California equine market is large and diverse, and this group focuses on the talents of Saddlebreds in all aspects of the breed, continually delivering an outstanding breed demonstration. This year, horses and riders from Bennett Farms, Majestic Stables and FireDance Farm will showcase their Saddlebred Stars on Saturday, February 6, at 4 PM, in the Carnation Arena.

Additionally, the Saddlebred Stars will be featured in the Breed Pavillion on a daily basis, with the ASHA sponsored breed booth. Saddlebred volunteers will be working at educating attendees about the breed by giving away free lessons on Saddlebreds, with the assistance of cooperating stables.

Volunteers are still needed to assist in manning the Saddlebred exhibit, as well as Saddlebred stables in the Arizona and California area, who would be willing to provide free lessons on Sadlebreds, in an effort to introduce newcomers to the breed.

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Kathie Dunn at (949) 586-0646, or by email at For a complete schedule of events during the Equine Affaire©, visit
