The Colorado Summer Circuit Kicks Off–More Than $1,000,000 in Cash and Prizes
Parker, CO — It has been an exciting first week at the Colorado Horse Park (CHP) with professionals from around the world completing their first rides of the Colorado Summer Circuit. Summer in the Rockies I has been awarding cash prizes to an assortment of hunters and jumpers, but one combination is already standing out. Allison Kroff and her horse Washington jumped to victory on Thursday, placing first in the $10,000 Open Welcome Stake, the first big jumper class of the circuit.
“It’s very exciting; he’s just stepping up to this level,” Kroff said of her 9-year-old stallion from Holland. “I’m very excited that he marched in here for the first time and jumped around and did his job!” Washington, a Dutch Warmblood with Heartbreaker and Indorado bloodlines, was imported from Holland as a 6-year-old.
“It was a really good course,” Kroff reported of the Hector Loyola-designed track. “You had a lot of questions and you had to know your horse very well to be able to answer the questions.”
