Message from Organizer John Marshall
Welcome to our first international competition! I hope you are as excited about it as we are. Our crews and volunteers have been working day and night to get the horse park ready for you.
Lucinda Green taught a clinic at the horse park 2 weeks ago and she proved to us that she is a great teacher as well as a great rider. I took her around our new cross country courses and she told me she thinks our course designer Jay Hambly and course builder Bert Wood are very talented.
Whether you are a rider, trainer, or spectator, I would love to hear what you think about the improvements we've made to the horse park. Pull me aside sometime this weekend and share your thoughts!
Have a great weekend at the Horse Park!
CIC 1* & 2* a Great Success
On February 14-16, 2014 Fresno County Horse Park held it's first International Horse Trials which included a CIC 1* & 2*. Canadian course designer Jay Hambly designed new Intermediate as well as 1* & 2* courses for this competition. Jay and well known course builder Bert Wood prepared courses and footing for these exciting new courses. We rented an additional 60 stalls to accomadate all 281 entries.
Matthew Brown dominated the upper divisions winning both the 2* (on BCF Belicoso) and Intermediate (on Happenstance). Tamra Smith won the 1* on Fleur de Lis, finishing on her dressage score.
