The Spring Gulch Horse Trials will be the first USEA recognized event to take place in Colorado in 2021 on May 22 and 23, with entries now being accepted until May 4.
Levels from Intro to Preliminary will be offered as one-day events, a change to the format that was implemented in 2020 as a response to COVID-19.
“After feedback from riders, we will be continuing with the one-day format, and we look forward to seeing everyone in May,” show organizer Andy Bowles said.
The Spring Gulch Horse Trials take place at the Spring Gulch Equestrian Area, a 106-acre space owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that has been a public equestrian park for more than three decades. Through a partnership between the Mountain Sports Eventing Association Central Colorado Chapter (MSEA-CCC) and the Highlands Ranch Metro District, multiple recognized events and schooling shows are held at Spring Gulch each year.
“Spring Gulch has a rich history and means a lot to the surrounding community,” CCC president Jonathan Horowitz said. “So, we’re thrilled that we’ve been able to grow the number of events we’ve offered here in the past few years.”
For those interested in competing at the course before the recognized event, a combined test of dressage and cross-country will be held on April 24.
