The first ever ‘B’ rated Working Equitation Canada show will be part of our National Breed show on Saturday Aug 12. Working Equitation is a fast growing equestrian discipline, open to all breeds, testing horses and riders in Dressage, Ease of Handling (obstacles) and a Speed class. English and Western Dressage for all breeds rounds out the schedule on Sunday Aug 13.
The FIESTA OF THE ROYAL HORSE will be held on Saturday, August 12, at 7 pm. The Fiesta is an evening of demos and exhibitions aimed at entertaining horse lovers of all ages. The show Grand Champions are also ‘crowned’ during the evening. Our always popular silent auction and stallion services auction close on the Saturday evening as well. Come see the beauty and versatility of our amazing horses and have an opportunity to chat with owners and lovers of these amazing breeds!
The success of PAALH’s show is due to the generous contributions of our sponsors and supporters and the continued efforts of a core team of dedicated volunteers who unselfishly step up to make this event possible every year.

2016 Canadian National Andalusian & Lusitano Show and Fiesta – Red Deer, AB
Westerner Event Centre
Red Deer, Alberta
Another Canadian National Andalusian & Lusitano Show is in the books! We had 77 horses come out to participate in the festivities at Westerner Park in Red Deer on a sunny and warm August weekend. There were many familiar faces to the show but also many new faces and ones we haven’t seen for some time (and were glad to see!).
It all began on Friday morning with halter and performance classes in the indoor arena under our National Show judge, Judith Knapp Warner. We had so much participation in the halter classes that the performance classes were pushed into the evening. Saturday saw halter and performance classes running in the indoor ring as well as the 3 phases of Working Equitation under judge, Julie Alonzo, simultaneously in the outdoor covered ring.
Saturday evening’s Fiesta of the Royal Horse saw performances of a Friesian drill team, trick riders, roman riders, a Pas de Deux, and the purebred and partbred Supreme Halter Champion classes. We were also blessed to have the local air cadets participate in the national anthems with Teala Caton carrying the Canadian flag and Karly DeJong with the American flag. PAALH’s 2016 Auction filly, Itala KD, donated by the DeJongs of Sheridan, Oregon, was won by Lisa Adams of Pennsylvania, USA – congratulations, Lisa, and thank you for bidding! PAALH is also very pleased to have been able to raise some money for the very worthy Canadian Forces Veteran charity, Can Praxis (www.canpraxis.com).
Sunday was a lovely sunny day spent in the outdoor covered ring for English and Western dressage judged by Karen Ashbee.
It was a fast and furious weekend in Red Deer and, as always, we wished there was more time spent socializing with friends old and new. Thank you to all the participants, sponsors, and volunteers – we couldn’t do it without you. We hope to see you all again next year!
