The 2022 ESP Holiday Series, presented by Arthramid®Vet, is right around the corner, and the Prize List is now available! Six events will make up the series, with competition taking place throughout the month of December. Things will commence on an exciting note with the Holiday & Horses show, which will feature CSI4* jumpers plus three derbies, and conclude on the final day of the year. Make sure to reserve your stalls as soon as possible, as these shows will be popular as horse-and-rider pairs prepare for the 2023 Winter Equestrian Festival!
If you’re itching to get back under the lights, either as a competitor or spectator, we are excited to announce that the $216,000 Holiday & Horses Grand Prix CSI4* presented by Arthramid®Vet, will be held at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 3! The gates will open at 6 p.m., and parking will be free! Additionally, there will be face painting for the kids, and the carousel will be open.
