Larry Langer Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

BURBANK, CA - Earlier this month Larry Langer was honored with the California Professional Horsemanís Associationís Lifetime Achievement Award. Langer was recognized for a successful lifetime spent in the horse show industry.

Langer is best known as the President and CEO of Langer Equestrian Group, one of the top horse show management companies in the country. Among the many shows produced by LEG, Langer created the Los Angeles National, which is one of the most prestigious shows in the country and culminates the West Coastís "A" circuit with championships, medal finals, and the LA National Grand Prix (CSI-W).

Langer also developed the Colorado Summer Circuit at the Colorado Horse Park, a four show series that attracts horses and riders from more than 25 states, Mexico and Canada. He and his management team have also served as the Competition Management for the North American Junior Young Rider Championships three different times, most recently in 2008, at the Colorado venue.

Highlights of Langerís career include serving as the Show Jumping Competition Manager for the Olympic Games (1996 Atlanta, GA), and also managing the 1992 Show Jumping World Cup Finals (Del Mar, CA).

Langerís success in horse show management is predicated on a lifetime spent riding, training, and teaching. Growing up in New York, Langer developed a solid foundation that he took to California when he attended college. He started riding, teaching and training while pursuing his Mechanical Engineering degree, and after working in the aerospace industry while teaching a small group of clients, he decided to dedicate his life to the horse show world. For ten years he owned and operated the Pacific Horse Center (Elk Grove, CA), and in addition to a stable full of top show horses, Langer also operated the Horsemastership program, three college accredited courses where a number of todayís successful professionals got their start. During this time he obtained his second college degree in Business Administration.

Langer also holds judging and steward licenses for both the USEF and the FEI. Throughout his career, Langer has been involved in governance, serving as either president of chairman of every major organization in California. He also served on the USEF Board of Directors, and was president of the National Hunter Jumper Council, the precursor to the USHJA on whose board he serves. He is also the co-chairman of the USEF Jumper Committee, Competition Management Committee, and the Legislative Committee.

Langer was honored by the award bestowed on him by the CPHA and his peers, which came as a complete surprise to him. "This is a great honor. Thank you," said Langer at an unusual loss for words when he accepted the award. Unbeknown to him many of his closest friends, peers, and family were in attendance to help celebrate and honor Langer:
