Glamour, Hijinks, and Generosity

October 1-4, the Los Angeles Convention Center hosted the second annual Longines Masters of Los Angeles. Thirty of the world’s best riders aboard champion equine athletes provided top-level show jumping, heart-pounding emotion, and an unparalleled class of entertainment and glamour. Ending the day on Saturday was the crowd-pleasing Charity Pro-Am and Competition. Before a star-studded crowd, professional riders partnered with celebrities to raise money for charities of their choice. All riders donned elaborate and far-fetched costumes, adding a bit of hilarity to their sporting performance, often with pre-competition hijinks. The pairs were judged on their show jumping, costumes, music, and choreography. This year’s winners were Darth Vader (Tracey Wade) and Luke Skywalker (Kaley Cuoco), who rode for Ride On. Alice in Wonderland (Hannah Selleck) and the Queen of Hearts (Jane Richard Phillips) competed for Just World International. Kent Farrington and Alex Crown were Gummy Bears for Autism Speaks. Jennifer Gates searched for Oz with Scarecrow Jack Towell for Thrive Animal Rescue. And young Red Riding Hoods were seen bribing the judges with baskets of goodies.   Roblee Valentine
