Georgia International Horse Park - Southeastern Charity Horse Show Part 1

AS  you know, this is where the Southeastern Charity Horse show was held.  This is the first time I had a chance to experience this wonderful Equestrian Center and I was so impressed with its design, superior stabling quarters and cleanlyness, that I just had to share it with you. 

First a bit of history:

The summer of 1996 in Conyers, Georgia was an exciting and momentous time. Over 600,000 visitors visited the community during the period of the Centennial Olympic Games. Every day of competition at the Georgia International Horse Park was sold out. Spectators and athletes alike marveled at the beauty and grandeur of the Horse Park. As the spectators entered the boundaries of the Horse Park and approached the Grand Prix Stadium, they enjoyed the natural aesthetics of the site as the competitions were underway. For the athletes, the opportunity to compete in a new venue designed for their events was memorable. Many called the stables at the Horse Park the finest in the world, a Ritz-Carlton for horses. Athletes enjoyed the training facilities, the retail shops and the warmth and compassion exhibited by the thousands of volunteers and staff who made the competition possible.

Now for some pictures:




This next picture inspired me since we just planted over 2 dozen red oak trees down a long straight away from the barn to where the house will be built.

It just does not get more beautiful than this!!!

Or I should say refound you. I got so excited reading that you were at GIHP, I didn't realize I had seen your blog before. Ah well, haven't had my caffeine yet.

(I answered in both places.) Our shows are AL, TN, & GA. Judging by Maranatha's website, looks like we will have to meet up at Chattanooga 2014, Conyers, or KY if I go to watch.

Good luck at NTASHA!
