Inaugural Temecula Valley National Horse Show Earns Outstanding Reviews

Temecula, Calif. – June 22, 2018 – Nilforushan Equisport Events has plenty of reasons to celebrate following the success of its inaugural Temecula Valley National Horse Show circuit at Galway Downs. The three-week series attracted record number of exhibitors, many of which had word of praise for the new event:

“It’s been better than I even imagined for the first time. It’s so impressive what they’ve done. It’s out of this world – it has a European flair and that’s really nice. It’s been really nice for our horses, our owners and our riders, and everyone has been really happy here. It’s top footing, the courses have been great and the people are unbelievably friendly. You feel very welcomed. It’s been a breath of fresh air.” – Mandy Porter

“I think they are trying to make it into something special. The prizes have been really nice, and they are putting some great effort into making exhibitors happy. I think that this venue has a lot. Horses like it here, and there is a lot of space for them. I hope more people see how everyone is liking the show and come to compete with us. It has been a great three weeks and the exhibitor party was especially fun! The social aspect, the competition aspect and the management is so service-oriented that it has made it the best experience.” – Nick Haness

“Ali [Nilforushan] has done a fantastic job and the footing is just perfect! I was here for the first show and already you can see the improvements and all the effort that is going into this whole event. I most especially appreciate the area for the exhibitors – we can sit down and enjoy the competition without having to pay for the VIP tables.” – Susan Hutchison

“Ali has a good attitude about making shows enjoyable for the exhibitors. He really wants to do the right thing and make the shows fun. Growing up we used to have so much fun at shows. It wasn’t just about competing and winning; it was a lifestyle. I can see Ali trying to bring that back, which I really support. It’s something different. It’s a great location with lots of trees and the footing is wonderful.” – John Pearce

“We are very impressed so far; we love the main ring, the super footing and atmosphere. They are trying really hard to get everything just the way it should be. We are definitely coming back!” – Michelle Parker

“This is a fantastic facility and Ali does an amazing job. It’s very nice to have a new venue to come to, and everything has been done first-rate. The rings are beautiful, the footing is great and the food is awesome. Supporting a new horse show is something all the trainers in California should be doing. I think each show is going to grow and grow in strength.” – Archie Cox

“It is my first time showing here but it definitely won’t be the last. I love it here! It is super fun because normally the Adult Amateur Hunters don’t go in the grass, so to get to come ride in the grass was a real treat. I am having the best time!” – Amy Brubaker

“It’s a long way for me, coming from San Francisco, but it is a first-class horse show. I really want to support Ali and his organization because I feel that he is trying to do great things for the sport – what he is trying to do for the exhibitors and the footing is [some of the best] we have had in California. [H]e has proven that he can provide a first-class environment.” – Hugh Mutch

“I am so happy that I could come and support the new show. The grass field is fabulous, the footing is great and it is beautiful. I am so happy to be here! I think the show organizers are doing a wonderful job. The prizes are wonderful and the presentation and the grass field – it is just lovely. I can tell my horse is very interested here and that is refreshing. I am really looking forward to coming back!” – Jenny Karazissis

2019 promises to be even better, so stay tuned for updates about next year’s competition!
