JULY AND AUGUST MARK IALHA AMNESTY PROGRAM
The International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Association, IALHA, is pleased to announce the start of an Amnesty Program to facilitate the registration of any eligible unregistered Andalusian or Lusitano horse one year old or older. This program, which allows a 50% discount on the cost of registration, starts on July 1, 2014 and ends on Aug. 31, 2014. This means that the usual IALHA registration fee of $100 is discounted to $50. All other applicable registration fees remain the same as published. If you have an unregistered purebred Andalusian or Lusitano horse(s), or an older horse(s) that is ready to show, this is a good time to get their paperwork in order. As an added benefit, you would then be able to enter the many IALHA/USEF-approved horse shows presented by IALHA throughout the United States every year. The IALHA Show Committee now requires that any Andalusian/Lusitano horse being entered in an IALHA show must present completed registration papers, in your name, with the show entry.
If your horse is registered with another recognized Andalusian/Lusitano registry we will accept those papers as identification. Also, if you can provide us with a copy of the DNA Marker report and the microchip verification you will save the cost having to purchase another DNA test and a microchip.
The IALHA also has a Half Andalusian Registry and the same Amnesty offer will apply to any horse that has a registered purebred Andalusian or Lusitano as one of it’s parents (either sire or dam). Having a horse registered in two breeds (say Quarter horse/Andalusian) could increase the desirability of the horse. The IALHA horse shows offer a full schedule of Half Andalusian classes at their regional shows and also the National Championship show. If you like to show your horse, then taking advantage of the IALHA Amnesty Program and getting him double-registered now could open many new venues for you.
Remember the dates of the International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Association Amnesty Program, July 1, 2014 to Aug. 31, 2014 and if you have any questions please call the IALHA Registry Office

Southern California’s Largest Family-Oriented Equestrian Event
May 1-4 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center
Whether you love horses or just beautiful things, the Fiesta Charity Spectacular is the place to be. On Saturday afternoon, May 3th, the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank will host the 16th Annual Fiesta Charity Spectacular, a Broadway-style extravaganza showcasing magnificent performing horses, including some of the stunning breeds featured in Cavalia … all at a budget-friendly price!
This festive, family-oriented event unites horses, musicians, dancers, celebrities and many other entertainers to raise funds for USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. It is the highlight of a four-day, multi-breed horse show and competition (May 1-4), which draws beautiful horses of Spanish origin from across the country, creating an unparalleled equine affair!
“There’s something for everyone the week of Fiesta, many activities the entire family can enjoy,” says producer Joanne Asman. “The days are packed with horse show competitions of many breeds and disciplines, and the capstone of the week is the Fiesta Charity Spectacular. The gates open Saturday afternoon at 2pm, when the show grounds come alive with musicians, dancers, vendors, cultural demonstrations and equine appearances. The show barns are open for attendees to see the horses up close, and there is a silent auction and two special raffles. The evening Spectacular and formal exhibition begins at 5:00 pm and is filled with exciting acts. It’s pretty much a total cultural and equine immersion experience.”
One of Southern California’s largest and most revered equestrian charity events, the Fiesta Charity Spectacular’s celebratory atmosphere attracts a broad audience from across the region. “I don’t even own a horse, but I love Fiesta,” says Amy Navarrete, who has attended for many years. “I come to watch some of the horse show classes — the horses are breathtaking! And, the Saturday evening Spectacular is amazing. The exhibitions are really something to see, my kids love it.”
Fiesta is supported by numerous celebrities, who have played active roles in furthering the tradition year after year. This year’s evening Spectacular entertainment line-up promises to be one of the best yet, with lots of surprises in store! The horse show begins Thursday, May 1 with Open Dressage, and runs through Sunday, May 4th. Competitions for breeds and disciplines such as Friesians, Andalusians, PREs, Lusitanos, Paso Finos, Peruvian Pasos, Plantation Walkers, rare Costarricense De Pasos, Western, English, Carriages, and the new Discipline growing throughout the world, Working Equitation will be held Thursday – Sunday. The show competitions are open to the public and free of charge.
Gates open at 2:00 pm for the Saturday Fiesta Charity Spectacular festivities, and the evening show begins at 5:00 pm in the Equidome. This popular show has sold out in past years, so advance purchase tickets are highly recommended. Ticket prices for the Charity Spectacular range from $10 – $30 (age 4 & under free).
