Don’t miss some great fun at the Championship Show!
We have a great new sponsor, Equitex, who will be donating two beautiful custom director’s chairs to the winner of the Best Barn Set Up challenge. Embrace your inner Martha Stewart, and get together with your barn buddies to create a comfortable, unique, and appealing look to your barn area. Judging will be done on Friday evening, after the Welcome Party at the Cantina. Equitex makes custom stall drapes, awnings, name banners, horse blankets, etc, and is a dealer for various tack trunk companies. Please call Katie Cook, your SoCal sales rep, at 949-285-6022 for more information about Equitex and how to get custom orders fulfilled in time for the championship show.
Since all horses will need to have a stall (day or weekend) at this DASC Championship Show, use this opportunity to get together with friends and express yourself!
Friday Night Welcome Party! Friday is the warm-up day, and what better way to kick off a great weekend of competition, is the annual wine and cheese Welcome Party?! We’ll meet at the Cantina after the last class of the day to try some great local wines and delicious snacks and cool music.
Saturday Night Competitor Party! Come to the Cantina at El Sueno after the last class of the day on Saturday for a great time! We will be hosting a fun pizza party with some special surprises – don’t miss it!!

Parade of Champions – Please keep it in your plans to be sure to attend the awards presentation ceremony and Parade of Champions for your level/division. This is an important part of the DASC Championship show for spectators and sponsors, and we try to make it as special as possible for our competitors. We will present embroidered coolers and champion sashes to Champion horse and riders at each division/level and fancy neck ribbons through sixth place.
