February 14 - CEP & NMHJA To Move Shows Back To Expo New Mexico
Citing the need to move in a different direction, CEP and NMHJA will no longer produce shows at the Hipico Santa Fe facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico. CEP's Chris Collman says, "working with Phyllis and her staff for the past two years has been great, and we take away many memories and fun experiences." Chris continues, "however, both New Mexico Hunter Jumper Association and CEP are looking to run horse shows in a little different manner than the facility is set-up for, so we are going to start having shows at the Expo New Mexico facility in Albuquerque ... I just think they are a better fit for what we want to be able to do moving forward." For 2023, the NMHJA will offer a three-day unrated schooling show on April 28-30 (USHJA Outreach applied) and a three-day, USEF Regional show on September 22-24 (a week earlier than last year to get completely off of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta dates). Visit the Horse Shows / New Mexico page to view and download prize lists when they become available.
February 8 - CEP Contracts Equidome For Jumper Classes At The Arizona Fall Classic 2 Show
Like last year, the Arizona Fall Classic 2, scheduled for October 25-29, will utilize the indoor Equidome for all jumper classes. CEP's Chris Collman says, "despite the best efforts of the previous facility management to drive us out by giving away the rings we want and need for our shows, the new management has rectified these egregious decisions and is supporting the efforts of CEP to offer quality hunter jumper horse shows, and we are grateful." Chris continues, "this also offers a great chance for those going to Las Vegas for the USHJA National Championship Horse Show a few weeks later to ride and compete indoors and get their horses used to the atmosphere."
February 8 - CEP And Westworld Equestrian Center Finalize 2023 Schedule Of Shows
The Westworld Equestrian Center in Scottsdale is under new management and the future looks bright. Along with plans for new footing, new barns, new wash racks and covering additional rings in the coming years, the new Assistant General Manager, Larry Gimple, has recognized CEP's tremendous record and nearly 30 year history of producing hunter jumper horse shows at Westworld. As of today, CEP will produce four shows at Westworld in 2023 with additional dates being explored for 2024 and beyond. CEP's Chris Collman says, "we are so excited that Larry Gimple has taken over the operational aspects of the facility ... now we can look forward to fair treatment, recognition of our contribution to the sport in Arizona over almost three decades and a renewed optimism for the future of our sport here in Arizona." Chris continues, "there have always been several outstanding staff members at Westworld who were never allowed to do their best and make sound and sensible decisions ... now those staff, including Earnest 'EJ' Jones, Walt Wier and Jeff Watson, can do what they always knew was in the best interests of the events and the facility and not be hamstrung in their duties." The April show, two weeks in October and one week in November are all set and confirmed for this year.
