It seems that the Spotted Valley Appaloosa Horse Club of Southern California will not take “No” for an answer. In 2016, and now 2017 they have thrown all caution to the wind as they have stormed into the show season with bigger, better and brighter ideas in creating a lasting, strong show circuit for All Breed people of Southern California can enjoy.
If you’ve shown in the last ten years than you surely have memories of massive open shows all across Southern California, from the Desert, to Norco and everywhere in between. Obviously in recent years the landscape of the open show has changed, and morphed into something else than yester year. The Spotted Valley board realized this, and wanted to make a change. Being all current competitors themselves, many even competing at a World show level, they brought their keen eye to bring Southern California an unforgettable experience.
“We just go for it, and try to bring our competitors the best show we possibly can. Being someone that competes myself, I try to project my hopes and desires for a show onto the Silver Series. Together the board is really energetic and full of wild ideas which makes everything come together to allow us to bring the horse industry a great event.”
Hosted at the beautiful McCoys Equestrian Center in Chino Hills, The Silver Series originally started as an Appaloosa only 1-day breed show. When the board realized there was more potential in also offering it to All-Breed horses the show took on a whole new look. In recent years, with a new, young board put together, the club has been succeeding at hosting some of the largest 1-day shows in Southern California.
New for 2017, to draw in more competitors, The Silver Series offers FREE class entries for all Youth Competitors. The idea was to entice barns, and families alike to bring out their children, who are the future of our horse industry. Offering multiple divisions that cover all aspects of kids ages, and riding levels, The Silver Series did not disappoint in numbers. At their first show of the 3 show series on April 9th they saw Record numbers in turn outs. Many claimed it was the largest 1-day show they had been to in years.
Record numbers in turn out, the Silver Series first installment on April 9th saw over 70 head of horses, with nearly 300 class entries. All classes saw a huge jump in numbers, from reining & ranch riding, to English and western. All types of riders, of all different levels turned out to enjoy some fresh competition.
For others who may be interested in attending this record breaking show, you are in luck! The Silver Series still has 2 more events set for May 21st, and June 11th, to qualify for Series high points you must attend 2 of the 3 shows, meaning you still have time!
