For the last 20 years, William Shatner has headed up the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, and this year the Hollywood Charity Horseshow Presented by Wells Fargo is taking place at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank on April 30th.

The event consists of a an equestrian competition featuring world-class riders, followed by a dinner, auction, and concert. There are still tickets available for the event, and volunteers are needed as well.

The website,, states that:

“It was back in the late 1980s that Shatner first watched an exhibition by children who were so severely handicapped that some of them could not hold their head up, yet there they were going through intricate exercises on the back of a horse. The program was sponsored by Ahead With Horses, a therapeutic riding group for handicapped children.

“When the exhibition was over, Shatner sat, deeply affected by what he had seen. ‘You can’t watch these kids without knowing you have to help, somehow.’ And so, in March of 1990 came the birth of the first Hollywood Charity Horse Show. Soon, other charities in need of help were added, small, grass root charities doing big time jobs.”

One of the charities supported is our very own Kevin Ryder and his wife’s charity, Friends & Helpers. Click here for ticket information. This year’s musical guest is Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sheryl Crow[/lastfm].

    I own a Casino Party Company. I would love to donate my equipment to help raise money for children. I am a new company and want to grow my business. One of the ways I do this is to donate to great causes. I love what I do!
