William Shatner will host his annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank this weekend, with musical entertainment to be provided by Sarah McLachlan.

Shatner has been hosting the charity horse shows for the last twenty years – inspired after he watched an exhibition by children who were so severely handicapped that some of them could not hold their head up, yet there they were going through intricate exercises on the back of a horse. The program was sponsored by Ahead With Horses, a therapeutic riding group for handicapped children. In 1990, Shatner hosted his first charity horse show, and the event has become a major fixture on the charity calendar.

This year’s event – on May 1 – will benefit AHEAD with Horses, Camp Max Straus, Starlight Children's Foundation, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Hollenbeck Police Activities League, The Painted Turtle and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
