West Palms Events Hosts Onondarka Medal Finals at the Del Mar International Horse Show in 2016 and 2017

West Palms Events will continue hosting the Onondarka Medal Finals at the Del Mar International Horse Show in 2016 and 2017. This is exciting news for our organization, and we are extremely honored to be chosen as the host venue for this event. The Onondarka Medal Finals have celebrated 12-and-under equitation riders and given them a place to shine for over 50 years. We look forward to presenting the 54th and 55th Annual Onondarka Medal Finals.
“I was on board for sure,” said Don Simington of Onondarka. “We were quite pleased with it this year, it went off without a hitch. We had a good time, the weather was very good, and all the kids had a wonderful time!”

“The Onondarka Medal Finals is an important event for young riders, and I couldn’t be happier that we have been chosen to continue hosting this Final through 2017,” Dale Harvey of West Palms Events commented. “The Onondarka Medal Finals gives young riders a chance to be rewarded for their horsemanship, riding skills and perseverance throughout the season. It is a true honor to host the Finals at the Del Mar International, and we intend to offer our young competitors a great experience, with a clinic and special events designed just for them. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the Simingtons for allowing us the opportunity to present the Onondarka Medal Finals at the Del Mar International Horse Show for the next two years!”
