West Palms Events welcomes top-level show jumping competition back to Los Angeles this fall with Riders Cup (Oct. 21-24, 2021) at LA Equestrian Center. The competition will feature $306,000 in prize money paid same-day, an all-inclusive entry system, and courses built by Marina Azevedo of Brazil and Kevin Holowack of Canada.

At Riders Cup in May 2021 at the LA Equestrian Center, Gold Medalist Will Simpson and Chacco P were victorious in the $100,000 Riders Cup Grand Prix. “Riders Cup is all the right things for a great show and a great competition, done by people who know how to put on a show,” said Simpson.


This fall’s edition of Riders Cup will feature the Pacific Coast Horse Shows Association (PCHA) $55,000 Jumper Championships.  PCHA has expanded its Child/Adult Jumper Championships to include both Low Child/Adult riders at 1.0m and Junior/Amateur riders at 1.20m and West Palms is sponsoring the $55,000 of prize money up for grabs.

“It’s something new, different, and really great,” said Archie Cox, PCHA President. “I am very excited that West Palms is hosting the PCHA Jumper Championships. We are getting a lot of interest and I have no doubt that West Palms Events will do a first-class job with it.”
