It was another successful show at City of Industry, California as Jesus Jimenez and his team put together a successful event for Feria Del Caballo, Springtime edition. The weather cooperated, as horses performed their tests and competitions under dry sunny skies. The evening celebrations were exuberant and well attended. USPRE was there, signing up new members, renewing old ones, and doing research on services past and present. Ana Martin, who has turned into an amazingly helpful resource for us in Southern California worked with breeders to change ownership and other services for their horses, along with Vice President Betsy Ketcham, Vice President and ANCCE Delegate Miguel Nunez and Joan Mack, Executive Director for USPRE.
Ramiro Perez, head of the BEC, was honored to give Ramiro Vega, representing Jesus Jimenez, a sponsorship check for this show. The Breeders Executive Committee was pleased to be able to offer USPRE sponsorship to an event that showcases some of the finest PREs in the U.S.
A very special thank you to Kevin Kidder for this beautiful photographs.
