AndalusianWorld Announces New Title Sponsor and Class Prizes For Andalusian World Cup
RELEASE: April 7, 2014
- For those who haven't seen the stories burning up the equine internet threads, AndalusianWorld is co-hosting the Feria del Caballo Español National Show & Andalusian World Cup Show September 25-27, 2014 in Las Vegas.
This marks the first year for the ground-breaking show, and it is being hailed as the largest Iberian horse show outside of Spain or Portugal. "Competitors already have committed to attending from all over the U.S., Mexico and Spain, encompassing multiple disciplines, and we believe this show will be the premier Iberian show of the season," said Kevin Kidder, co-founder of AndalusianWorld. "The concept of a truly inclusive show, hosting Iberian horses of all registries, really has people excited."
Championship classes will offer prize money, championship ribbons, trophies, random draw prizes, and some division champions will also take home brand new saddles.
The newest title sponsor to sign on is renowned saddle maker Dale Chavez. Winners of all Championship classes will receive a custom belt buckle, and the Supreme Champion Western Pleasure champion will be awarded a Dale Chavez western show saddle.
And, in the Working Equitation division (which is open to all breeds of horses), the highest scoring horse & rider team will win a new saddle, courtesy of Iberian Connection.
All Supreme Championship classes (10 entries or more) will be eligible to win $500 in prize money for first place, in addition to a championship ribbon and trophy. And, in true Vegas style, all entries in the Championship Classes will qualify for a draw to win prizes from Cowboy Magic, Platinum Performance and other prizes from many other leading sponsors.
Classes offered include: A full slate of ANCCE Morphology Classes (Feria del Caballo Español), Andalusian World Cup Halter and Performance Classes with Purebred, Lusitano and Half Iberian Classes, and Working Equitation (open to all breeds). This show offers something for every level of competitor with classes for professionals, amateurs and youth.
Although for the Feria del Caballo Español classes horses must be registered with ANCCE, the Working Equitation division is open to all breeds and Andalusian World Cup classes are open to all horses registered with any recognized Iberian registry. It doesn’t matter if the horse is registered with ANCCE, P.R.E. Mundial (Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse), IALHA, Azteca, or APSL-- all are welcome at the show.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available, and there are a number of attractive packages remaining, some of which include vendor space and live broadcast commercial ads as part of the sponsorship. This new and exciting show offers a unique promotional opportunity for breeders, training facilities, and equine-oriented businesses of all kinds.
The prize list for the show will be available by mid-May, and many classes are expected to fill quickly. Regular updates will be posted on andalusianworld.com
