WATCH MEXICO AND THE U.S. JUMP HEAD-TO-HEAD!
The Sister City Challenge Cup is an international show jumping competition that celebrates the horse sport and friendship between Sister Cities San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and Santa Fe, New Mexico. HIPICO Santa Fe warmly welcomes the Mexico Team to this premier event, which takes place during the Sonrisa Week of the Summer Series. After Thursday’s qualifying classes, the Sister City Challenge Cup will take place Saturday, July 28, directly after the All-In-One Jackpot Grand Prix.
