Building The Horse Trials

While activity is year-round, the true evidence that the Red Hills International Horse Trials will soon be underway is when the stabling tents arrive.

In addition to the main stabling area shown in the picture above,  a smaller stable is erected for the Leon County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse which participates as part of the event’s security force.  The maximum overnight horse occupancy at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park will be 316 when the stable installation is completed in the next few days.

A high security fence, stabling office, stalls, bedding, ice machines, equine showers, watering stations, blacksmiths, and a tent to house Competitor Hospitality will all be installed before the first rig rolls into Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park.
