WHO: The Santa Barbara National Horseshow Community Volunteers

WHY: The Earl Warren Showgrounds, the 19th District Agricultural Association, was created in 1955 to house the National Horse Show and remains a cornerstone in enabling the Santa Barbara and surrounding communities to celebrate and experience the deep agricultural and equestrian history of the area. The showgrounds also serve as a key location for the safe-keeping and care of animals in the event of wildfires and natural disasters, as it is the only facility that can facilitate more than 1,000 large animals.
