Riding Club’s Year-End Show a Benefit for Equine Evac

The nonprofit organization served the equine community during recent fires

The Santa Barbara County Riding Club has been serving the community for many decades, providing affordable horse show events for competitors at all levels of experience and income. Now, the SBCRC will seek to benefit Equine Evac as part of its year-end show festivities.

A hunter/jumper event that runs from 4 p.m. Oct. 30 to 5 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Earl Warren Showgrounds — free to spectators — will include a special benefit the evening of Oct. 30 for Equine Evac, a nonprofit organization that served the equine community during the recent fires by providing evacuation and rescue services, although Equine Evac provides its services all year.

“The SBCRC serves a much-needed niche for equestrian sports,” president Ed Giron said. “We offer five hunter/jumper shows a year at the Earl Warren Showgrounds, and provide an affordable alternative to the expense of showing in Los Angeles or Northern California, especially for riders in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties. I compete in jumpers myself, and this year we have a special jumper event on Friday evening the 30th named after my horse, Buckle Bunny, as well as costume classes, and tandem classes involving jumping and elaborate costuming. It promises to be fun.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
