It is with great disappointment that we announce that the 2021 Santa Fe Summer Series will not take place. While we were optimistic about our ability to produce the Summer Series, the long-standing COVID-19 shutdowns and lingering uncertainty in New Mexico surrounding large-scale events created an environment that severely hindered our ability to secure the capital necessary to underwrite the substantial infrastructure and staffing required for the 2021 Santa Fe Summer Series.
Though the Summer Series will not take place this year, we invite you to join us at one of the many upcoming equestrian and non-equestrian events taking place at HIPICO Santa Fe in the months ahead. You can find our events calendar here: https://www.hipicosantafe.com/.
The decision about the 2021 Santa Fe Summer Series was not made lightly. We are making this determination now to be fair to all involved with the Summer Series who need to make timely plans regarding their 2021 show calendars. We are grateful to our sponsors, exhibitors, supporters and wonderful staff, near and far, for their encouragement and assistance as we worked to secure the funds to produce the Summer Series. As we all know, it takes a village and ours is a wonderful one, filled with talented, caring and generous people. As always, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We hope to see you soon,
