LOS ANGELESThe Los Angeles Equestrian Center held The
Celebrity Slide and Challenge Western Horse Show this past Saturday, a charity event where celebrities competed against one another for their preferred charitable causes.

This year’s competition boasted a celebrity roster that included country singer and songwriter Lyle Lovette; actress, model, and singer Bijou Phillips; actor and notable equestrian enthusiast William Shatner; stage actor Obba Babatunde; and comedian, writer and producer Brian Unger. 

Participants were required to show off their equestrian skills in the difficult sport of “reigning” where contestants run their horses at top speed and come to an abrupt sliding halt followed by quickly spinning in place.
