The musical guest for the 2011 Priceline.com Hollywood Charity Horse Show has been announced.
For the past two decades, William Shatner has donated his time and fame to Hollywood Charity Horse Show, which has raised money for various children’s charities. This year’s show will be held on April 30.
The Hollywood Charity Horse Show attracts world-class reining horses and riders, who entertain those in attendance with “breathtaking slides and spins as they compete for top honors in their respective classes.” When the riding part of the show is over, the musical part of the evening begins.
This year’s musical guest will be Sheryl Crow. Tickets for the Western dinner party and concert can be ordered here.
Seeing severely handicapped students performing intricate exercises on horseback back in the 1980s at an exhibition by AHEAD With Horses, a therapeutic riding group for handicapped children, affected Shatner to the point where he wanted to lend his time and fame to helping handicapped children. “You can’t watch these kids without knowing you have to help, somehow,” he said.
