The Colorado Horse Park (CHP) in Parker, Colorado, has deep roots in the sport of eventing. Originally known as High Prairie Farms, owner Helen Krieble purchased the property in the early 1990s with one dream: hosting horse trials.

Krieble later donated the ground to Douglas County with the agreement that the land would be used for equestrian sport and the CHP was born.
