April 11 - CEP Announces The NMHJA Spring Fling & Summer Opener Will Take Place
CEP has received confirmation from facility management that the State of New Mexico has relaxed the Covid-19 restrictions enough to be able to host the USEF Regional I (B) rated NMHJA Spring Fling on May 29-31 and the NMHJA Summer Opener on June 3-6. CEP's Chris Collman says, "strict Covid protocols, from both the USEF and the state will be required, but being able to host hunter jumper shows at the Hipico Santa Fe facility for the first time since the fall of 2019 is exciting and is great news for the exhibitors of New Mexico!" A prize list will become available by the end of this week and can be found on the Horse Shows / New Mexico page.
March 12 - CEP & The Denver Polo Club Announce New Facility And New Shows In Colorado
CEP and the Denver Polo Club are excited to announce a joint venture designed to insure the future of hunter jumper horse shows in Colorado for many years to come. Phase 1, which is in the final planning stages and is about to break ground, will include two large competition arenas, two warm-up arenas, a lunging / open riding area, 200+ show stalls, a show office and dry camping RV spaces. Future expansion, as early as 2022, will include additional show and warm-up arenas, more stalls, RV spaces with water and electric, an exhibitor hospitality area and a vendor area.
CEP is planning to offer two weeks of USEF National (A) rated shows this year with the creation of the new Colorado August Classic I and II, scheduled for August 12-15 and 19-22. The facility is also in talks with several other CHJA Group II show managers about future dates as well.

December 21 - CEP Announces New Show Date For NMHJA Spring Fling Horse Show In 2021
Due to anticipated Covid-19 issues carrying over into early 2021, CEP and the NMHJA have decided to move the Spring Fling show, originally scheduled for April, and create a two-week series of shows with the Summer Opener. The new dates will be NMHJA Spring Fling on May 29-31 (Saturday through Monday as that is Memorial Day weekend) and NMHJA Summer Opener on June 3-6 (Thursday through Sunday). Having two weeks of shows at the beautiful Hipico Santa Fe at that time of the year will make it more appealing to those that may want to travel from out-of-state as well as help NMHJA amortize expenses related to move in and move out. So, the tentative 2021 NMHJA horse show schedule is:
NMHJA Spring Fling / May 29-31 (Sat-Mon)
NMHJA Summer Opener / June 3-6
NMHJA Fall Festival / October 1-3
Be sure to mark these great shows on your calendar and we look forward to seeing everyone in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2021!
November 24 - CEP Arizona Show Dates For 2021 Now Available On The Horse Shows / Arizona Page
The show dates for the CEP Arizona shows for 2021 are now available on the Horse Shows / Arizona page. Due to Thanksgiving moving on top of the second week of the Arizona Season Finale shows, there will only be one week in November 2021. In addition, the 2021 USHJA Zone 8 Championship has been moved to the Arizona Fall Classic show on October 21-24, 2021. This was done because of the 2021 AON / USHJA National Championship Horse Show taking place in Las Vegas the same week as the Arizona Season Finale, and the USHJA refused to allow the zone championship to take place on the same week.
