Viva Las Vegas Horse Show Is A Go

The California Equine Foundation would like to announce the Viva Las Vegas Horse Show, October 29-31, 2020 at South Point, Las Vegas, Nevada. These dates had been held by the California Futurity Horse Show which decided to cancel for this year.

According to Kent Moeller, manager for Viva Las Vegas, “The California Futurity board made the decision to cancel their 2020 show due to the Covid concerns around hospitality and amenities that the futurity show has provided for exhibitors in the past. 

“Much like Bonnie Blue took on the dates of the Shenandoah Classic Horse Show this year in Virginia, the California Equine Foundation recognized the need for a horse show as so many in the region had been canceled.” 

The South Point Hotel, Casino and Equestrian Events Center has strict Covid protocols in place. Manager Moeller is confident that this horse show will be as safe or safer than the rest of the shows he has managed this summer. The show will be held in the main arena with ample space for social distancing. 

Officials for the show include manager Kent Moeller, secretary Lori Nelson, ringmaster Sean Cassidy and photographer Rick Osteen.

Randy Harper will make the trip from Shelbyville, Kentucky to judge all divisions. The California Equine Foundation is a 501-c3 organization.
