The Colorado Horse Park
The Colorado Horse Park is the largest horse park in the western United States. It typically features more than 40 events per year. It also has 11 competition arenas, 100 boarding stalls, an RV park, and two covered arenas. The arena has 300 permanent stalls and portable stalls for more than 1,000 competing horses.
The Colorado Horse Park was rumored to be sold and developed into a subdivision, but news of a new ownership put these concerns to rest. Mark Bellissimo, owner of a large equestrian festival in Florida, bought the park in December 2014. Helen Krieble, who bought the park in 1993, neared retirement that September and put the park up for sale.
Colorado Equestrian Partners
The new partnership that now owns the park, Colorado Equestrian Partners, includes Mark and Katherine Bellissimo and other partners within the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
The Colorado Equestrian Partners purchased the park with plans to invest in improvements. These improvement included stabling and footing and key factors that energize the equestrian community. The partners planned to develop philanthropic initiatives along with outreach programs that work with local schools to raise awareness about opportunities in horse sports. And over the years since this new ownership they have done just that!
Today The Colorado Horse Park hosts a number of events. In this month alone it has hosted its second High Prairie Dressage event of the year, a cross county schooling on schooling course, the Marilyn Payne eventing clinic, and the Horsemanship Goodnight event. It also hosted an event during the month of June called Summer in the Rockies. The Summer in the Rockies event is a horse show competition in which riders can compete and win prizes. The event began on June the sixth and will end on July the eighteenth. For more information about The Colorado Horse Park, contact Colorado Horse Property.
