Meet me at the Berm Pavilion
We consider all of our competitors and friends VIPs so we have restructured the Pavilion access accordingly. The recently re-named Berm Pavilion (formerly VIP Pavilion) is ready to welcome and accommodate any and all of our guests. Utilize the Berm Pavilion as you take a break from the mid-day sun, while keeping several of our competition arenas in site. Dining tables for 8, high-top bistro tables for 4 and plush couches and loveseats will accommodate you and your company as you enjoy the provided hospitality.
Did Somebody say Cocktails?
We have equipped the Berm Pavilion with two full bars, and have bartenders standing by to happily mix your favorite cocktails or beverages. We wouldn’t want you to go hungry while relaxing at the Pavilion, so we are also offering an assortment of snacks and appetizers at the Snack Bar, located at the north end of the pavilion. Drink and food specials will be available, so make sure you keep an eye out for new offerings!
Show me the Money!
Did you know that the Summer in the Rockies show series offers prize money in EVERY hunter jumper division? It’s true, and it’s amazing.
On the Hunt
As you probably know, CHP is synonymous with FUN and what could be more fun than a circuit-long scavenger hunt? Stay tuned for details about this fun event that will get you exploring the grounds, talking to new people and in the running for an awesome prize!
The fun isn’t over, even when the summer is. The seven-week Summer in the Rockies series may seem long now, but in reality, it will be over before we know it! Never fear, for CHP has an autumn season, filled with exciting events. Late August will welcome one of eventing’s largest crowds as CHP proudly hosts the 2018 USEA American Eventing Championships.
Labor Day weekend will hold the 15th annual competition as eventers from around the nation travel to CHP to compete in the largest eventing competition in United States. Last year, Tryon International Equestrian Center made history as they accommodated an impressive 753 starters at the 2017 championship. Whether you come to the AECs to compete or to spectate, it is guaranteed to be one of the most exciting and significant equestrian events held at CHP, in Colorado or to take place in the Rocky Mountain region.
Autumn in the Rockies
September will also usher in cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and the 2018 Autumn in the Rockies show series. Mirroring Spring in the Rockies, the Autumn series will offer 3 weeks of hunter, jumper and equitation competitions. Prize lists will be published mid-summer, so make sure to check it out!
We strive to give you the best experience at the Colorado Horse Park by fostering a unique atmosphere that is competitive, yet fun. We encourage you to let us know how we’re doing. We value our competitors’ feedback and we would like to embrace every opportunity to improve your experience at our venue.
