Gifting Ceremony to Charities

The Beginning of Hollywood Charity Horse Show

In the late 1980s, Shatner - an avid horseman, watched a young girl with no arms sit on a horse and ride it with the reins in her toes at a therapeutic riding facility sponsored by AHEAD With Horses. It moved him so much, that in March of 1990 he started this charity to raise money to give back to the organizations that are making a BIG difference to people and children in need. He is very passionate about giving to others.

His annual event is on a Saturday evening each year in April. The HCHS brings together world-class reining horses and riders competing in their respective classes. Afterwards, as the sun sets, everyone enjoys a western-style dinner, silent auction and sit back to hear world-renown talent. Past events headlined Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson and Randy Travis.
