Equestrian lovers take note. It’s time for the 37th annual HPA Horse Show, coming Sunday, April 21.

Held at the Hawaii Preparatory Academy’s upper Waimea campus, the show will feature jumping and riding competitions, including hunter trials and “Play Day” events.

Although the event is being held in Waimea, competitors from every island are welcome, says show manager Judy Folk.

“This show welcomes riders from throughout the state,” she said.

Terri Impson of Kahua Ranch will judge. Impson, who was the first president of the American Quarter Horse Youth Association in Hawaii, is a veteran of numerous past competitions, and has been riding and training for 35 years.

The Kahua Ranch rider has won numerous championships, including Dressage at Devon, and was awarded a silver team medal at the 2010 Asian Games is Guangzhou, China.

Impson and teammate Nina Ligon were also the first women to medal in an event in the history of the Asian Games.


Riders at Sunday’s competition will compete in multiple divisions, with medals being awarded from first through sixth place.

The event is free and open to the public, and HPA is seeking volunteer jump judges to assist with the competition.
