Upcoming Los Amigos Events

Summer is on its way and our two events are quickly approaching!

JULY 22-24
Los Amigos Championship Diamond Anniversary Show
Officiated by Jose “Pepe” Risso M.
Earl Warren Fairgrounds
Santa Barbara, California

The premium is almost complete and we have a lot of fun things in store for spectators and exhibitors this year!

• Special Ribbons & Trophies to Celebrate our Diamond & Pearls Anniversary!
• Silent Auction!
• Kids Fun Classes & Lunch Friday Afternoon! Sponsored by HVM Ranch
• Tapas Competition Saturday Night!
• Peruvian Reining Series! Sponsored by Peruvian Horse Quarterly
• More Bozal Classes!

• High Point Awards: Conquistador Cup, Juniors, Novice, Amateur, Ranch!
• Best Decorated Barn Award!
• Angie Schmidt Perpetual Trophy! Sponsored by Piloto’s Shadow Ranch

We will be conducting the show in the outdoor arena this year. The reasons are many… the arena is the same size as the oval, the show office is much larger, the concession stands are right there, Show Sponsors can set up EZ-Up tents around the show arena to watch the show in comfort, it’s cooler for exhibitors and the ring officials, less glare from the stark white walls of the indoor arena and there’s no need to walk up and down a long flight of steps to watch the classes. There is still shaded seating and a warm up arena. Many other shows use the outdoor arena so we thought that we’d give it a try too.

We’re looking for Class and Show Sponsors. To see our Show Sponsor packages, click here. If you’re interested in supporting our show, please contact Dianna Whisenant (818-404-0757). A special thank you to those that have already signed up such as California Riding Magazine,Horseman’s News and Peruvian Horse Quarterly Magazine.

Competition is always fierce yet fun at Los Amigos. We have quite a few horses eligible for Laureado this year which always makes the show more exciting. Best of luck to all of our exhibitors. We can’t wait to see you at the show!
