62nd Annual Del Mar National Horse Show: Three Weeks of Equestrian Pageantry

Equestrian event one of the largest in the Western United States

DEL MAR, CA (Feb. 15, 2007) — For more than 60 years the Del Mar National Horse Show has been one of the most respected, distinguished and popular equestrian events in Southern California. Consisting of three disciplines — Western, Dressage, and Hunter/Jumper — the Del Mar National Horse Show is a delight for horsemen, as well as a great spectator event. The 2007 show will run for extended weekends Thursday, April 19 through Sunday, May 6.

The show is highlighted by three major Saturday night events that showcase the best equestrian competitors and performers.

The Western week of competitions kicks off the Del Mar National Horse Show on April 19 and runs through April 22.

The world famous Budweiser Clydesdales, the symbol of quality and tradition for Anheuser-Busch since 1933, are scheduled to make an appearance during the show’s intermission. The spectacular eight-horse hitch will pull the famous red beer wagon to the delight of spectators.
