Since 1955. Elegance, excitement, excellence — these are the hallmarks of the Del Mar National Horse Show, one of the oldest and most prestigious equestrian competitions in the Western United States. The first week of the Del Mar National Horse Show features Western classes, such as reining and trail. Week 2 features Dessage with ballet on horseback, compulsory movements of horse and rider. And week 3 features the Hunter/Jumper competitions. World class horses and riders will again set the bar very high literally and figuratively as they vie for this prestigious title and hefty paycheck! Our featured Saturday evening events require a paid admission, but you can come early and watch the equestrian teams warm-up, enjoy dinner and drinks at our tasty food and beverage concessions, or do a little shopping of unique horse-related specialty items, art and fashion.
