PARKER, Colo. – June 19, 2020 – LEG Shows & Events has added two more weeks of competition to its lineup of summer shows at the Colorado Horse Park.  The series will kick off with Summer in the Rockies VI & VII (July 8-19) followed by Summer in the Rockies Continued I (July 22-26) and Summer in the Rockies Continued II (July 29-Aug. 2). This decision comes as a result of the cancellation of the HIPICO Santa Fe Summer Series previously scheduled for July 15 – Aug. 9, 2020.

Also, remember that social distancing still applies while you are in your golf cart. Please make sure you have the necessary amount of golf carts for your barn so that many people are not crowded into one cart.
