With eight sets of AQHA points at stake, the Southern California Quarter Horse Exhibitors Association’s Double Feature Show attracted exhibitors from all over the western states. The show opened April 13 with more than 4,500 entries vying for points, plus silver and copper buckles at the lovely Del Mar Showpark facility in Del Mar, California.
The unique “Double Feature” format gave exhibitors the opportunity to show to eight sets of judges over five horse show days. The show is two shows back-to-back– “The Double Feature.” Exhibitors only show to two judges at a time, giving them the opportunity to perform four times and hopefully improve each time. Some of the classes are offered side by side. For example, in the trail class, exhibitors rode the trail pattern for two judges, then proceeded to a second course and rode again for two different judges. The trail classes were quite large and some exhibitors needed calculators to add up all the points they earned.
