30 May 2015 Santa Fe Summer Series
Famed for its art, opera, and homegrown spicy green chilies, equestrian excellence returned to New Mexico to annually host the Santa Fe Summer Series. Located on the southwestern tip of Santa Fe with a clear view of the volcanic formed Jemez Mountains, the 137-acre HIPICO Santa Fe complex, hosted over five hundred horses and riders for three weeks of premiere hunter-jumper competition.
The highlight show jumping event is the Grand Prix. Soaring fences, intricate courses, and speed, none of which is for the faint of heart, tests the mettle of both horse and rider. Sunday afternoons, Grand Prix days, drew the curious locals and passionate followers of the sport. The first week’s results awed seasoned riders and spectators alike and wrote another chapter in horse history.
