Southern California Hunter/Jumper Shows By K. A. Kenney Everyone in the hunter/jumper business knows that the serious horse scene is back east-or at least it used to be. The West Coast is becoming a powerhouse in the show jumping world, boasting riders such as 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Will Simpson, Nation’s Cup Team Member Ashlee Bond, and the Master of Faster, Richard Spooner. You can see any of these riders, and more talented international equestrians, at almost any Southern California A show. California has a rich history with horses, spanning from the day of the Spanish missions to the present. Cars may outnumber horses these days, but equines still take precedence for many Californians. Los Angeles and San Diego boast large horse populations, and even Orange County, despite its declining stabling options, has a thriving equestrian community. Since a number of different shows are held at each of the four main SoCal show grounds, I’ll go by location, beginning up north with the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. A storied old facility, the LAEC is located in Burbank and hosts dozens of shows each year, from the popular Gold Coast Series to the International Jumping Festival in the fall. Put on

by Langer Equestrian Group, these shows take place under dappled trees and have a real feeling of old Los Angeles charm. Grand Prixs are a frequent occurrence in the famous Equidome, and equitation and hunter classes are traditionally held in the instantly recognizable ovals. A grass field and bridle trails round out the center and provide for a fun show experience. Spectators will find the LAEC’s proximity to local attractions a major plus when visiting, as there are plenty of sights to see when the show day is over. A relaxing stay in Palm Desert is right up most Californian’s alley, especially those used to the hustle of Los Angeles. Luckily, the equestrian set’s needs are satisfied by one of the nation’s largest shows, Thermal. Put on by HITS (Horse Shows In The Sun), a show management company that runs shows across the nation, Thermal is the replacement facility for the old Indio show, located a few miles away. After years of memorable and successful shows, Indio became outdated, and the search for more space began. This need resulted in the Desert Horse Park, a wide, sprawling show ground with excellent footing, broad desert vistas, and a unique atmosphere. Each winter, the

Desert Circuit hosts weeks of shows, including Grand Prixs and World Cup Qualifiers, which are run in the large Grand Prix Arena and the small indoor ring, respectively. Thermal is a great weekend destination for spectators, and features the best of the best competing in huge classes for considerable prize money. The Oaks Mission Viejo Riding Park, located in San Juan Capistrano, is a breezy, sun kissed slice of land tucked into a valley a few miles from the ocean. A local favorite, it has a laid back California vibe that makes showing not so nerve wracking. In fact, showing under the towering oak trees on the huge open lawn is downright relaxing. Sitting on the banked Grand Prix field and watching a big class is the best way to spend a lazy weekend afternoon. Shows at the Oaks are run by Blenheim EquiSports, which manages a number of excellent shows at the facility each year. Blenheim EquiSports also oversees showing at Showpark, located in Del Mar, just inland of the famous racetrack of the same name. Showpark boasts many of the same classes and amenities of the Oaks, and is a great location for those closer to the border. Equestrian enthusiasts that share a love of the beach could easily

ride a few classes and then unwind at the beach. Spectators could also double the equine fun by watching some jumpers in the morning and then catching world class racing in the afternoon at Del Mar. Although California shows may not have quite the history and grandeur that Eastern events do, the competition is equally fierce, and the facilities are world class. Top-quality horses and riders travel this circuit, and many hold their own both on the other coast and abroad.

Local Dentist Michael Tessier Reveals Affordable Ways of Paying for Dental Care I think we all grew up thinking that medical or dental insurance was there for our benefit, like they were taking care of us. However, insurance is a product to make stockholders money. Although there’s nothing wrong with people wanting to make money in the market, that’s the main focus of that industry, not taking care of us (the insured). Even before the current attempt by the federal government to force us into government-run socialized medicine (run by the same people who operate Medicare, social security, and the post-office), all of us had become aware of the truth about insurance, as “covered benefits” decreased and “co-pays” increased. So, it is a real pleasant surprise for me to be able to report that Delta Dental of Illinois has announced their Enhanced Benefits Program offering “enhanced benefits for those with high-risk medical conditions”. Systemic diseases like diabetes, pregnancy, cardio-vascular conditions, renal disorders, cancer-related chemo- or radiation therapy, or suppressed immune systems have correlations with oral conditions. Delta/ Illinois is now taking these conditions into account, and paying more liberally for dental care than they used to. Pat and Donna at my front desk have between them fifty-plus years in the dental field, and will be able to answer any questions you might have. Please don’t hesitate to call them. When you call, please be sure to ask them about “Care Credit”, a credit card offering up to twelve months of interest-free credit on dental work. I like this because there are no premiums involved that have to be paid on a monthly basis, whether any dental work is required or not. Dr. Michael Tessier is located in Los Flores Plaza at 28562 Oso Parkway. Most major credit cards and dental plans cheerfully accepted telephone (949)459-7212

Blenheim Summer Classic Series And Grand Prix, Here Through August 19th Chris Pratt Dominates the International Field in the $30,000 August Festival Grand Prix With the Olympic Show Jumping kicking off today in London, Blenheim EquiSports also hosted its very own international competition at the Showpark August Festival. Canadian rider Chris Pratt excelled in the $30,000 August Festival Grand Prix, presented by Mary’s Tack and Feed, by virtue and patience. As the final rider of thirty-eight entries, Pratt took the advantage of watching numerous rounds of trial and error to ride a smart enough round and qualify Wakyra for the jump-off. Eight nations represented the field today and one-by-one they attempted to master the unique but technical track built by course designer Pierre Jolicoeur. “The most important thing of course is that it’s safe,” commented Jolicoeur, “but the riders and horses should also learn something. I wanted it to be new and I wanted it to be fun.” Nearly half the field fell short in the vertical-oxer-oxer triple combination, while several others fell short over the liverpool vertical. “They overrode into the triple,” Jolicoeur added, “the liverpool required scope but again too many were overriding it trying to set up for the triple combination that was a challenge in itself.” Seven horse and rider combinations were able to get through the sixteen effort qualifying round, beat the time allowed of 74 seconds without fault, and return for the jump-off. The international representation yet again dominated the jump-off as five nations prepped to steal the show. The reliable combination of Brazilian rider Josephina Nor-Lantzman and Chello Z were the first to return and as always the first to post a challenging time to beat. The duo set the bar with a clear time of 34.203 seconds. Antonio Maurer (MEX) and Lorenza O’Farrill (MEX) followed the Brazilian and were both able to post clear rounds, but simply couldn’t better the time of Nor-Lantzman and Chello Z. Columbian rider John Perez and Arezzo were fourth to go and by taking no time in the air, cutting corners, and galloping to the final fence, the pair stopped the clock in 33.386 seconds, securing the lead. Fellow Mexican representatives Marcelo Galan and Gabriella Mizrachi followed Perez in the order and were determined to better his time. Again posting beautifully clean rounds, neither could surpass Perez and Arezzo’s blazing time. It wasn’t until the final rider and crowd pleaser Chris Pratt (CAN) aboard Wakyra Page 8

re-entered the ring that there would be a challenger. Quietly negotiating his course of action from the sidelines and gaining momentum from watching his competitors’ rounds, Pratt knew he only had one choice and that was to give it his all. “I saw Josephina’s (Nor-Lantzman) round and she flew,” Pratt noted, “I didn’t get to see John’s (Perez), but my plan was simple; I wasn’t going to pull on the reins once.” Pratt piloted Wakyra through a flawless jump-off, making every stride count and, in Jolicoeur’s terms, “turned like a barrel racer.” Pratt (CAN) and Wakyra tripped the wire in 32.700 seconds, plenty good for first place. Pratt was all smiles during the awards presentation, “He is so careful and honest. Pratt shared of his winning mount, Wakyra. “This is only his third show this season and he is

always reliable.” Pratt went on to commend Jolic o e u r, “ H e is so clever. Pierre (Jolicoeur) has his own uniqueness and you saw that in the triple combination. He likes to build things that make the horses look and that creates the challenge. All in all, it was a well built course and I couldn’t be happier.” The Showpark August Festival in Del Mar wrapped three intense weeks of back-to-back competition. The

action shifts to San Juan Capistrano next week for the two week Blenheim Summer Classic Series, August 8th 19th. Highlights include the $40,000 Blenheim Summer Classic II Grand Prix on Saturday, August 18th. Visit the Blenheim EquiSports website for all upcoming event information.

An Evening of Hope Raises Almost $90,000 for Brain Injury Recovery As the sun was setting on a balmy evening in Newport Beach, around 1000 people enjoyed “An Evening of Hope”, the 14th Annual Eric Marienthal and Friends Concert at the Newport Hyatt. With dinner, a silent and live auction and of course the anticipation of stars that would shine on stage during the jazz concert, folks were in for the time of their life. The evening started with a VIP dinner poolside, all catered by Tulsa Rib Company serving up Tenderloin steak, Shrimp, vegetables, potatoes, salads and very large chocolate covered strawberry’s for dessert. A no host bar with beer and wine was also available; all the while, the Ron Kobayashi Trio played in the background. After dinner, the VIP’s were escorted to the outdoor amphitheater, where they joined the sold out crowd who were enjoying a very large silent auction. Some of the featured items were 4 orchestra seats to “Catch Me If You Can” at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts; 7 days and 6 nights in Mazatlan, Mexico at the Wyndam Las Villas Hotel and Spa which included breakfast and a round of golf and a child size Mercedes Pedal Car were just a few of the items up for grabs. There was also a huge sizeable collection of sports, celebrity and movie memorabilia that folks were able to bid on as well. From Betty Boop to Muhammad Ali, there were scores of signed photos and sports equipment to peruse. Talaya, from 94.7 The Wave was introduced – she directed everyone’s attention to the video screen where it played a very heartwarming movie of what High Hopes is all about, who they serve and why. High Hopes is the first nonprofit brain injury program in the country to serve the needs of the brain injured and their families. In the United States, there are over one million five hundred thousand traumatic brain injuries annually, many of which survive and need “High Hopes”. As a one of kind program, High Hopes does not give up on anyone, but rather, finds solutions to help each brain injured person recover abilities once thought lost forever. Eric Marienthal has been with High Hopes for 14 years bringing the best jazz musicians in the world to come help this outstanding organization raise funds. Hitting the stage this year with him were David Benoit, Peter White and Phil Perry.

Rounding out the band was Jimmy Earl on bass, Lenny Castro on percussion, Ross Bolton on guitar, Gary Novak on drums, Mitch Forman on keyboard and Lill Perry on background vocals. The concert is really one of a kind with each giving their best to capture the moment; the music had everyone on their feet with some couples dancing in the grass. During a break in the evening, the live auction started that featured some beautiful jewelry such as a stunning Vintage Blue Sapphire and Diamond Davette Pendant Necklace as well as a gorgeous Tanzanite Necklace; there was also a wine and dinner pairing for eight at Spaghettini’s and of course who couldn’t resist bidding on a Bichon Frise puppy?

FASHION GETS A REINVENTION THROUGH RE-USE Fashion will enjoy a reinvention on Saturday August 18th from 1 - 4pm when the crowdawing Festival Runway Fashion Show returns to the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. Now in its fourth year strutting down the runway, the Festival Runway Fashion Show rules are well known: Festival of Arts exhibiting artists are welcome to compete for cash prizes by designing the most imaginative “found” design, where at least 80% of materials used are reclaimed, reused or recycled. A three-judge panel (including one celebrity known for his or her high style) chooses the grand prize winner, while the crowd gets to cast their vote for the “People’s Choice Award”. The judges this year hail from sophisticated textile and artistic fashion backgrounds, including LACMA Curator of Costumes and Textiles, Kaye Spilker, and Jeannie Mai, the host of the Style Channel’s popular fashion makeover show “How Do I Look?”. Jerry Penacoli of Extra! TV returns in 2012 as host. “Festival Runway Fashion is quickly becoming a signature Festival of Arts event,” said Susan Davis, director of special events for the Festival of Arts. “Every year seems to up the ante, and this year won’t disappoint!” In 2011 audience and judges alike were amazed by the winning design, which was a full-length, grand wedding dress that came off layer by layer to reveal a sexy miniskirt bodice… all in cellophane. The 2010 winner was a form fitted, floor length gown of fallen eucalyptus bark accented by berries, with a set of wings attached to the back that spread to a span of five feet as the model moved down the runway. Both designs were the invention of painter and Festival exhibitor Bradley Elsberry. In the inaugural competition of 2009 the win was taken by artist team Barbara Hendricks and Luciano Bortone, who repurposed old Pageant of the Masters programs and plastic forks to create a strapless gown accented with a glamorous hat worthy of Del Mar. This year, artists will compete for four possible titles: “Most Creative

Concept,” “Most Exciting Ensemble,” “Most Innovative Use of Materials” and “Most Wearable to Next Year’s FOA Exhibit Opening Night Party”. Each title carries a $1,000 cash prize. The “People’s Choice Award” carries no monetary prize but it just may be the most sought-after award of the competition. Competing for the top prize are artists Luciano Bortone, Dagmar Chaplin, Bradley Elsberry, Michelle Lance, Rick Graves, Adam Neeley, Jon Seeman, John Tolle, and Annette Wimmer. Who will take prizes and earn highly coveted bragging rights in 2012? Festival visitors are invited to find out on August 18th from 1-4pm at the Festival of Arts, 650 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, CA 92651. Festival guests can enjoy the Festival Runway Fashion Show for free with Festival admission ($10 for adults, $6 for seniors and students; free admission for children 12 and under, Military, and Laguna Beach residents). The Festival of Arts is open daily from July 1 – August 31, 2012, from 10am to 11:30pm (August 25, 10am to 3:30pm). General Admission: Weekdays $7, Weekends $10; Students & Seniors: Weekdays $4, Weekends $6; Free Admission for Children 12 and under, Military, and Laguna Beach Residents.
