The Central California Horse Show Series contains a full schedule of hunter and jumper classes, including International Grand Prix Hunter Derbies and the GGT-Footing Grand Prix SeriesGGT-Footing was placed in the second jumper ring, hunter rings and warm-up rings at the venue, providing competitors top-notch, safe footing for their horses to compete on for the series.

“GGT-Footing is very proud to be the official footing provider to the Paso Robles Horse Park,” says Cynthia Brewster-Keating, GGT-Footing Sales Team National Account Manager. “We are very impressed with the quality of the arenas and the layout of the facility.

Four rings kicked off the first day of the Central California Memorial Day Classic with some exciting competition on the fresh grass and pristine GGT-Footing!

The day began with the 1.0m Jumpers in the Fairway Field Grand Prix, with the first horse and rider competing on the well groomed grass! Rebecca Bruce and Bombastic B took home the first blue ribbon in the Grand Opening of the Fairway Field! The 1.35m jumpers in the Fairway Field Grand Prix was a fun course and Marc Grock and Irish 77 took top honors with a blue ribbon. The breezy afternoon ended in the Fairway Field Grand Prix with the 1.40m jumpers. Out jumping all of their competition, Lauren Hester and Warinde B took home the final blue of the day!

The first blue ribbon ever awarded in the LD Hayes Arena went to Amanda Garcia and Lincoln on their double clear round! The first arena to finish in the afternoon, the LD Hayes Arena rounded out their day with the 1.10 jumpers, with some tidy rounds, but ultimately Rebecca Bruce and Axel came in double clear to take home the blue.
