PARKER, CO (Phelps) - The crown jewel of the Summer in the Rockies six-week series, the $50,000 Parker Adventist Hospital Grand Prix, was held on Saturday afternoon of Week VI. It was Military Day at the Colorado Horse Park, honoring and welcoming military and first responders to enjoy family activities and great show jumping.

Title sponsor Parker Adventist Hospital was on hand for helmet fittings and distribution of free riding helmets to children as part of their Equestrian Safety Program. The evening began with lead line featuring cute ponies and children all walking away with blue ribbons, followed by fast and feisty Jack Russell terriers who raced against each other to the delight of the crowd of spectators.
