Colorado Horse Park Horse Trials/Derby (Sep 2017) Omnibus Listing

Biosecurity: The Colorado Horse Park requires the following: current negative coggins certificate within one year; Health Certificate within 7 days of arrival; paperwork reflecting the dates of vaccinations that were given. They need to be within 180 days and the most important is the flu/Rhino - EVH 1 & 4. It would be preferable that the vaccinations are included on the Health Certificate. Horses may not unload until paperwork is turned in and approved. All horses must enter the facility off Bayou Gulch Rd. There will only be one entrance open and it will be the first entry east of Ponderosa High School and across from the church. No entrance for horse show trailers through the top gate on S. Pinery Dr.

CHP Pre-Check: We will be offering CHP Pre-Check. Pre-Check consists of the owner submitting all paperwork a minimum of 48 hours in advance of the show, and upon approval, the owner shall receive a pass for each horse to be presented upon arrival at the biosecurity gate. This will speed up your entrance to the facility. Please email all relevant documents to: [email protected] Your passes will be emailed back to the address from which you send the documents.
