One of La Cañada Flintridge's oldest traditions cleared new hurdles for a successful relaunch last weekend.
The Flintridge Horse Show, formerly the Children's Horse Show, allowed riders of all ages for the first time in its 90-year history, packing the available stable space and overcoming a rainy first day to draw between 1,500 and 2,000 spectators for the four-day show.
The show is the primary fundraiser for the Flintridge La Cañada Guild of the Huntington Hospital. It has raised between $25,000 and $125,000 for the hospital each year for the last eight years, according to organizers.
Kristin Korkunis, the show's publicity chair, said it will be several weeks before the organization will have final financial totals for the event, which ran from April 26 through April 29 at the Flintridge Riding Club. But she said the show sold out all of its 400 horse stalls and almost all of its 400 seats for its Saturday night ringside dinner.
