Sacramento International Horse Show Celebrates its Best Year to Date

The eighth anniversary of the Sacramento International Horse Show represented how far this show has come in just eight short years. Sell-out crowds packed the Murieta Equestrian Center’s Indoor Arena to watch elite riders and horses compete head to head for a chance to improve their standings and qualify for the FEI World Cup™, held in Sweden in March 2016.
World class riders including Richard Spooner, Will Simpson, Quentin Judge, Mandy Porter, Eric Navet, Jill Humphrey, Eduardo Menezes, Ben Asselin, Samuel Parot and many more made Sacramento their destination in September, competing in the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League Qualifier as well as the Grand Prix Qualifier and the Lasher’s Elk Grove Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Ride and Drive, Presented by The Chronicle of the Horse.

“Our best year ever at the Sacramento International has really put Sacramento on the map as a show-jumping destination. We’ve had an amazing turnout, not just on World Cup night, but for our other events here as well, including the Ride and Drive” commented Dale Harvey of West Palms Events. “Thank you to all our sponsors, the Sacramento community and the spectators that came out for this incredible show-jumping event, we could not do it without all your support!”
