Palos Verdes 62nd Annual Portuguese Bend Horse Show

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Estates Properties 00598848


Palos Verdes homes owners are invited to support the annual Portuguese Bend National Horse Show held at Ernie Howlett Park, beginning on Friday, September 6, through Sunday, September 8, 2019. This is the 62nd year that this A-rated event offers three full days of a wide variety of special equestrian events.  Activities will be scheduled in both riding rings including the prestigious Pacific Coast Horse Association Horsemanship Medal Finals for riders 14 and under and the PCHA Victor Hugo Vidal Adult Horsemanship Class for riders 35 and over.  In addition, the $10,000 Harman Family Jr-A/O Jumper Classic and the $15,000 Seahorse Open Jumper Classic promise to challenge some of the West Coast’s finest Jumper riders over a difficult and exciting course.

This show is the most popular three day event of its kind in the Western United States.  Palos Verdes residents will enjoy the feel of an old fashioned hometown fair with food booths, hay bale, boutique, Frankie Foti Master Magician, Jim Gamble Marionettes & John Chambers and the Wonderful World of Puppets, pony rides, games, moon bounce, face painting, and North America Wildlife with live animals from around the world.  The Children’s Area is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday & Sunday, and 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.  This event is sponsored by The Peninsula Committee Children’s Hospital to benefit The Associates Endowed Chair for the Chief of the Children’s Orthopaedic Center and The Associates Chair in Liver and Intestinal Research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Riding events will begin at 8:00 a.m. each day.  On Friday admission is free all day, but on Saturday and Sunday, general admission will be $5 and children under 12 are free.  Parking is free and is located directly across from the event, with free shuttle services.  You can also reserve ringside tables.  Each day’s special event schedule and shows can be found at, or call (310)-318-8258.

There is a special Saturday Night Supper with music by Boomer McLennon & The Rthymn Rangers.  The Supper goes from 5:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. and tickets are $75 if purchased by August 24, and $95 if purchased after August 25, 2019.  Click here for more information and to purchase tickets for Saturday Night Supper.
