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.

One of La Cañada Flintridge's longest-running - and jumping and galloping - traditions is undergoing a major transformation this year. After 90 years of children's horse shows, the Flintridge La Cañada Guild's annual horse show will be open to all comers of all ages. The event, which draws riders from around the nation and raises tens of thousands of dollars each year for Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, will also feature new events and categories, including a Saturday night Grand Prix offering a $25,000 prize for the winner.

That old saying about April showers is certainly true this year. We had a double whammy of raindrops on this past week. No doubt the May flowers will be especially beautiful because of the moisture. This was quite a week for nature happenings. The black bear that wandered into neighboring Montrose and La Crescenta certainly did cause a media flurry - or maybe more like a fury. The hovering helicopters made it sound like we were in a war zone. I'm happy that there was a peaceful resolution and no injuries to humans or the bear, and that he has been taken back to the forest.

If you?re seriously injured in an automobile accident and need to be airlifted to a hospital, there?s a good chance you?ll be taken to Huntington Memorial. Huntington Memorial Hospital has the only emergency room in the city of Pasadena and the only trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley. The high cost of maintaining a trauma center has caused many centers across the country to close, said Lauren Oakes, president of the Flintridge La Cañada Guild of Huntington Memorial Hospital. That?

The crowd cheered as 12-year-old Jonathan Rickel got to his feet atop the back of his horse. Jonathan raised his hands high in the air triumphantly as the applause grew. This was no small fete for the youth, though he?s been riding a horse nearly as many years as he?s been alive. Jonathan learned to ride a horse at the tender age of 1, his dad, Jeff Rickel said, as he paused from videotaping his son?s equestrian expertise. ?How many 12-year-olds can do what he?s doing?? Jeff Rickel asked, adding, ?

I'm going to stray from the (to me at least) fascinating and entertaining goings on in my front and back yards, at the schools and playing fields, and all the other little stuff I get such a kick out of. Instead, I'm going to focus on what you already know from opening your mailboxes ? it's that time of year again. That time of year, the late spring, after the expected (and mourned in their absence) rains were predicted to be over, but before everybody goes off into their summer vacation mode of flop, or frenetic activity, or travel, or all of the above: first travel and frenetic activity then flop upon return.

There is only one trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley and only one children’s equestrian show dedicated to enhancing it. The 89th annual Children’s Horse Show will be held Friday through Sunday at Flintridge Riding Club. It is the longest-running children’s horse show in the U.S. and the main fundraiser for the Flintridge La Cañada Guild of Huntington Hospital. For more than 50 years, the guild has run the horse show to raise money for the hospital and, for the third consecutive year, will earmark its donation for the new trauma center, the only such facility that serves the foothills.

In light of recent tragedies, it’s more important than ever to consider the need for local emergency trauma units. Perhaps that’s why the Flintridge La Cañada Guild of the Huntington Memorial Hospital is seeing an overwhelming response to purchase tickets for events at this weekend’s 88th annual Children’s Horse Show, despite national economic concerns, said Horse Show Chair Stephanie Sepulveda. Sepulveda grew up in La Cañada and rode in the Children’s Horse Show as a child, she said.
