Thank you all for supporting the CPHA Banquet this year. It was great to honor those we hold so special. It was held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA and if you missed it make sure you put it on your calendar for next year. It will be held at the same location. We have a silent auction there to help raise funds for those in need so this is a very important fundraiser for all!

Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to help our fire victims. It has been a devastating time for many and thru the CPHA Foundation we raise funds to help those who have lost so much.  If you are one of those still in need please go to the Foundation page and fill out an application for aid.

In September the Green Incentive Championships will show off all of the great green horses we have in California. Not too late to enroll, just check out the information on the home page under: Green Incentive Program. Remember your horse must be registered under your membership and the rider, owner and trainer must all be current CPHA members. This is an incentive program which means the monies collected will go back to the participants. Lindsay Maxwell will be sponsoring this event along with Blenheim Equisports this year so a huge thanks to her.

For our year end banquet this year it will be held in San Diego so mark your calendars for January 5-7, 2018.
