Lexington, Kentucky – 04 January, 2021 – The new year brings a variety of new additions to the Split Rock Jumping Tour (SRJT) schedule for 2022, including a move of its California stop to the state’s Central Coast. The boutique Split Rock show experience will highlight jumper competition of all levels with a CSI2* FEI rating (pending USEF approval) at the Paso Robles Horse Park from September 7-11, taking over the dates of what was previously the Sonoma International. The week of the Split Rock Paso Robles CSI2* will feature a number of exciting show jumping classes, including the $100,000 Split Rock Grand Prix CSI2*.
Named a must-visit region by The New York Times, Paso Robles is often referred to as “Real California” with its abundance of beautiful vineyards, oak-studded hills, small-town charm and easy access to some of the best beaches. The Paso Robles Horse Park’s location is ideal as it sits in the heart of the region and is less than a 10-minute drive from the picturesque downtown square. The destination’s appeal and the centralized location of the Park made the tour’s new move an easy decision.
The Paso Robles Horse Park opened in May 2015 and is a state-of-the-art equestrian competition and event facility located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The facility is run by the Park’s Foundation allowing them to manage and attract events that align with its mission to support the relevance of the horse in today’s world while embracing and giving back to the local community. The Park spans 70 acres with a large turf field, eight GGT sand arenas, 224 12’x12’ onsite stalls, and the ability to accommodate additional temporary stalls allowing them to offer outstanding facilities while highlighting the local charm.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Split Rock Jumping Tour to the Paso Robles Horse Park,” commented the founder of the Park Foundation, Linda Starkman. She continued, “We feel our aligned efforts to deliver unique boutique show experiences paired with world-class amenities presents the perfect opportunity for collaboration.”
The Split Rock Paso Robles CSI2* is sure to be a premier experience and exciting addition to the 2022 Tour. Check out the schedule and stay tuned for updates with more information on how to enter.
