LEG Shows & Events has announced that it has leased The Colorado Horse Park for 2021. LEG will manage nine weeks of competition at CHP, growing the hunter-jumper footprint in Colorado. LEG also plans to rent the facility to other show managers to produce additional equestrian competitions.
The Langer Group has been managing horse shows for 50 years and is proud to continue producing excellent competitions at The Colorado Horse Park. “We decided to lease the facility in order to make needed facility upgrades, including new and improved footing,” explained Marnye Langer, CFO and Managing Director of The Langer Group. “We know this is a big undertaking, and we remain committed to doing everything possible to keep the horse community going and growing in Colorado.”
Michael Stone, the President of Equestrian Sport Productions, is equally thrilled about LEG stepping in to lease the facility. “The Colorado Equestrian Partners are very pleased to continue working with the LEG Shows & Events at The Colorado Horse Park,” said Michael. “We look forward to continuing top equestrian sport at the venue and hosting safe, enjoyable events.”
Horse show manager Charlotte Robson is already gearing up for a LEGendary show season. “As we prepare for the spring series, the safety and comfort of exhibitors and their horses remain our top priority,” commented Charlotte. “As such, we will be upgrading the footing in all rings and all temporary stabling will now be under ClearSpan tents with generous aisles between stall blocks. We’re excited to be partnering with Jamaica Tent Company on these spacious tents in addition to the 375 permanent stalls available.”
The LEG Colorado Horse Shows will begin with the Colorado Spring Classic (May 20-23) and the Colorado Spring Final (May 27-30), followed by a five-week summer series and a two-week fall series. The summer series starts in mid-June and includes Summer in the Rockies II through VI. Summer in the Rockies III and V will be WCHR weeks, featuring USHJA International Hunter Derbies. The year will finish off with the two-week fall series in September. Week II of the fall shows will host the ASPCA Maclay Region 6 Finals and the LEGIS League Medal Finals. Both the summer and fall shows are also part of the Texas Super Series Group.
The spring prize list will be posted this coming week and the summer prize list will be available in mid-March. LEG expects stalls to sell out quickly; the early submission of stabling request forms is recommended for stall reservations. All forms will be available at www.langershows.com. Entries must be submitted electronically, either through www.horseshowsonline.com or Equestrian Connect.
