our dear friend, longtime supporter, and an incomparable artist who so freely shared his time & talents with Fiesta…

And to all our friends whose lives have been touched by cancer: those who have conquered the disease, those who are fighting it today, and those who have lost the fight.  We also salute the late, great Donna Hecht, who helped co-found Fiesta of the Spanish Horse following the loss of her husband Jay to cancer.

2018 Fiesta Charity ‘MANE’ EVENT

The Fiesta of the Spanish Horse is a 501 (C) 3
Organization (42-1620270) dedicated to raising awareness and much needed funds for Cancer Research.

Fiesta has raised Awareness and Funds for  American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer, Kure-it Cancer Research, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, Roy & Patricia Disney Cancer Center and Wounded Warriors.

Fiesta also plays an important role in integrating communities by honoring horses, other animals and people
steeped in rich tradition. The special Sunday afternoon Mane Event features an entertaining and educational afternoon that celebrates the heritage and historical impact of the Horse. The performance includes a dazzling display of the inimitable magnificence, elegance, and agility of the Andalusian, Lusitano, Lipizzaner, Friesian, Peruvian Paso, Paso Fino and other high-stepping horses, highlighted with music and dancing.
The afternoon will also feature other animal entertainment and pet adoptions, and include a wonderful variety of vendors, foods, a raffle and more! This year will feature a variety of Equestrian and non-equestrian Entertainment in a full range celebration called “Fiesta Charity Mane Event”


Once again, horses will be competing over the weekend
