Ask any horse lover: the Los Angeles Equestrian Center is the premier equine facility of its kind. A pleasing and professionally operated multi-use facility in Southern California with everything the discerning horse owner and event organizer could ask for and more.
It was back in the late 1980s that William Shatner first watched an exhibition by children who were so severely handicapped that some of them could not hold their head up, yet there they were going through intricate exercises on the back of a horse. The program was sponsored by Ahead With Horses, a therapeutic riding group for handicapped children. When the exhibition was over, Shatner sat, deeply affected by what he had seen. “You can’t watch these kids without knowing you have to help, somehow.” And so, in March of 1990 came the birth of the first Hollywood Charity Horse Show. Soon, other charities in need of help were added, small, grass root charities doing big time jobs.
Today, the Priceline.com Hollywood Charity Horse Show, Sponsored by Wells Fargo is an ongoing event that garners national press coverage. On one special Saturday evening each year, William and Elizabeth Shatner bring together world-class reining horses and riders in breathtaking slides and spins as they compete for top honors in their respective classes. Then, as the sun sets, the much anticipated auction and music show put on by headline groups such as Brad Paisley, Ben Folds, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Randy Travis, Vince Gill, Wynonna Judd and Neql McCoy, kick off right after an amazing array of food and fun.For those unable to attend the event Mr. Shatner has cultivated a unique set of offerings for an online silent auction. The items appeal to a broad base of entertainment fans, not just Mr. Shatner’s fans but through the help of Mr. Shatner’s generous friends in the Entertainment Industry unique and signed items are provided all with the goal of raising as much money as possible for the charities benefited by this 501c3 organization.
