As you may have heard, Denver Equestrians acquired Normandy Farms and Stables in May, 2012.
While this is beyond a dream come true for us, the best part is that we get to share it with all of you.
Our 32,000 square foot equestrian complex is now open to the public!
The Gala Grand Opening Evening will be held at the barn Saturday, October 6th, 2012. Imagine our spacious indoor arena~ beautifully transformed into a venue fit for Kings and Queens! Wear your best "Denim & Diamonds" attire. Hats, boots, denim or dresses all welcome! Celebrity Master of Ceremonies Ed Greene will walk you through an enchanted evening filled with cocktails, dinner, dancing, and a silent and live auction on Saturday evening.
Guests will receive a complimentary "Apple-Loosa" upon arrival! Sip this delicious apple cocktail on your way in, and enjoy hand- passed appetizers such as Grilled Pears on Bruschetta with Brialt Savarin and Organic Wild Mushroom Crostini (just to name a few).
Amazing and delicious presentations of local fare, portraying food traditions of Colorado, will be provided by Big Bang Catering.
Check out this review: "When this Boulder-based company — which was featured on celebrity chef Bobby Flay's Food nation — caters an event, the preparation starts months beforehand: The vegetables, herbs, and flowers used in Big Bang's dishes are grown on its 35-acre, organic Pastures of Plenty farm."- 5280 Magazine CBS4 Newscaster Ed Greene is a senior member of Denver's working media, and is one of the most recognized and involved TV personalities in the community. He generously donates his time to emcee events so that local organizations can raise money and awareness for good causes like ours. Everyone (ages 12 and over please) is invited to this exciting evening event ~ Please join us!
Come back with the kids for pony rides, face painting, photo opportunities and a picnic lunch.
We have big plans to improve Colorado Equestrian Center (your community riding facility, formerly
known as Normandy Farms), and we need your help.
Our vision is to provide a family friendly environment where horse lovers of all ages can learn, thrive and grow. To accomplish this vision, we have several goals to improve the facility.
There are many more projects on the horizon, and
we need your help.
The more expensive improvements include building a kick wall in the indoor arena, increasing turn-out space for the horses, and adding a roof to the outdoor arena for more year-round riding space. We will also be adding a walkway surrounding the facility.
