National Celebration of the
Pure Spanish Horse features Horse  Show,
All New “Horse of the Kings” Theatrical Production and Mexican Heritage Night
with El Puma de Sinaloa Concierto y Baile!

The Foundation for the Pure
Spanish Horse, a   501 (c) 3 non-profit
organization dedicated to the preservation and rescue of the Pure Spanish Horse
(P.R.E.), invites the public to attend the 2011 P.R.E. National Celebration of
the Pure Spanish Horse Championship Horse Show sponsored by Yeguada Centurión
Segovia, Spain. The show dates are Tuesday, Aug. 30th through Saturday Sept. 3rd at
SouthPoint Hotel
& Casino
Equestrian Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Featured in
the films “Lord of the Rings” and “Kingdom of Heaven” these glorious horses
known as P.R.E.’s (Pura Raza Espanola’s) or Andalusians, with their flowing
manes and tails, are one of the rarest breeds in the United States.  They have long been known and admired by  royalty as the “horse of kings.”  Their incredible beauty, kind nature and
amazing athletic ability captivate anyone who has the good fortune to “meet”
one of these fantasy creatures.  They
will be a feast for the eyes as they compete in dressage, halter, performance
and specialty classes.  The show starts
all days and the daily
horse show is free to the public.  If
you’ve ever wanted to meet “Pegasus” in person, now’s your chance!

Highlighting the show will be
two ticketed events: on Thursday Sept. 1st beginning at 7 p.m., Mexican
Heritage Night will feature the Mexican Heritage Freestyle Event followed by
the El Puma de Sinaloa Concierto y Baile with special guest  La Sonora de Colombia. At
7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3rd enjoy an all new production of
The Horse of the Kings Theater which tells the story of the P.R.E. through a
new and spectacular must-see theatrical event. This delightful play brings
beautiful horses into the spotlight as they perform and dramatically show the
history of the Spanish Horse as the audience enjoys the art of Classical
Dressage (horse dancing),
Doma Vaquera, Spanish Garrocha, and more in a colorful performance with music,
lights and dancers. There will be a special appearance by the incredible
stallions and trainers of the renowned Medieval Times Dinner &
Tournament.  Come early because just

a real live Pegasus home with you! Both special events are fundraisers for the
Foundation and tickets (

SouthPoint Box Office (702-797-8055.) For
