Judge Change

posted May 31, 2019, 12:10 PM by Thea Pichel

We would like to announce the change of judge for the RGPHC show from Ernesto Roca Dammert to Luis Pablo Vasquez.  Sr. Dammert had an unexpected family emergency that understandably takes precedence.  We offer him and his family our sincere regards at this time as well as to welcome Sr. Vasquez on board.  Thank you to our exhibitors for their understanding and we will see you all in a few weeks.

Barbara on LEA Poema
We were greatly saddened by the unexpected passing of our Gold Rush Classic Co-chair, Barbara Windom. We will be honoring her with a Special Tribute at the Gold Rush Classic on Saturday, June 24, 2017 just before start of classes. It will be webcast. Also, our party will be changed from Thursday evening to Saturday evening, June 24th, at approximately 5:30 p.m. (time TBD) in order to allow Barbara's family to be present. The party will be in Barbara's Honor, for all she has done for our show and for the Peruvian Horse over the years. Her Obituary, graciously supplied by Barbara's daughter, Rachel Stengel, is attached.

Sponsorships and ads honoring Barbara can be purchased on this website through the Online Store.
