Flintridge La Cañada Guild of Huntington Hospital announced this week that the 91st annual Flintridge Horse Show, set for April 26 to 29, has added a $25,000 Grand Prix event.

After 90 years as a children's horse show, the event will be modeled after other Class A horse shows to include adult events. The four-day show will feature new caterers and food vendors as well as gift, clothing and equestrian boutiques.

The Land Rover of Pasadena Grand Prix will be held during the Saturday night dinner event and will pit veteran riders against a challenging course of high jumps. The traditional Friday night Wine Tasting returns this year.

This year's proceeds will go toward putting final touches to the new emergency ward at Huntington Hospital.
