Nancy (Harvey), please tell everyone that I appreciated being asked to judge the 2013 Fiesta Show. It was a lot of fun even in the wind and heat. I really enjoy the Andulusians and Friesians. There were some very good horses and the exhibitors were great. Everyone in the office treated the judges very well, we appreciated the food and the help we received. Great job on your part you should be proud. My ringmaster was great and speedy got the horses into the ring in a timely manner. The Saturday night presentation was very good and I think the crowd enjoyed it.
Thanks again! Bill Hughes

“We had a wonderful time. The week was over way to quick. You and everyone that helped at the show office and at the main event did a great job. It is our favorite show of the year!”

Hi Joanne
Thank you so much for a great weekend! We were thrilled to be there and that people are interested and happy to see the horses! What would it take for this breed to get some recognition here in the States and maybe even start some classes??? Overall we are very pleased though and really wanted to thank you for your hard work and dedication to make this so successful. It was a delight to be there this year!!! And the show overall was just amazing!

I noticed that there were several videos being filmed at the same time and I was wondering what i would have to do to get one? We filmed the show too, but I am sure the quality and angles of the professionals were much better than what I could have done! So please let me know what i would have to do to get that! Thank you so much! And til next time!

Hi Joanne:
I wanted to let you know, personally, just how much I enjoyed the wonderful Fiesta. I have never seen anything quite like what was presented and each performer (x girl ropers) were outstanding. I even learned quite a bit about the Spanish horses and loved the Paso Finos with their little tippy-tappy footwork.

I have loved horses all my life and have been fortunate to have them on my own land for years. My life probably would not be complete without at least one. So you opened another door of enjoyment for me and you did a wonderful job coordinating and presenting this, for many years. I congratulate you and all the effort of everyone involved in this event.

Have a wonderful summer and also thank you for supporting two great causes.

Just a note to thank you,for putting on such a spectacular event on 5-2-09 at the Fiesta Of The Spanish Horse! It was our first time sponsoring the event and we’ll be back!

The amount of work that goes into preparing for an event of this magnitude, shows that it was a success in the professional presentation and largely attended event, regardless of the challenges in the economy — hats off to your team – you pulled it off with class and style!

United Taxi of San Fernando Valley (UTSF), is happy to serve the valley and all of LA county and has been doing so since 1977! UITSF was glad to be a sponsor and to pass out our promotional items at the show, as we like to give something back to the community and remind them that we are available to serve!

UTSF looks forward to participating in the 2010 Fiesta Of The Spanish Horse so do keep us posted!

Thank you.

P.S. feel free to post this thank you note on your website.

Thanks Joanne for your help at the Fiesta this past weekend. Our client, who recently became and Andalusian owner, came out from Kansas. She had a great time and felt very welcomed by the Andalusian/Lusitano community. I was glad to see the show looked like a terrific success!

Dear Joanne,

The horse show was the hit of the year…maybe decade!

A Letter from the Coordinator

Dear Exhibitors, Show Committee, and Volunteers,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for participating in the Fiesta of the Spanish Horse.  Our exceptional performers, generous sponsors and supportive community make this event possible, and without your invaluable contributions we would not be able to accomplish our goals.

We hope you enjoyed the event and benefited from the opportunity to perform in front of the 3,500+ people attending. I am pleased to inform you that the show was a tremendous success and we have received wonderful feedback from our audience.

With your help over the years, we are able to raise much-needed awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society, USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, and other charities. These funds will go toward research to find cures for cancers of the genitourinary system, female reproductive system, breast, lung and gastrointestinal tract as well as melanoma, leukemia, lymphoma and AIDS-related cancers.

Your professionalism and wonderful performance played an important role in the success of our fundraising efforts. Once again, thank you for supporting Fiesta of the Spanish Horse (a California 501(C) 3 Non-Profit Organization, #42-1620270) and assisting us in the fight against cancer.
