The Horse Park is developing into the premier equestrian facility in Washington state, serving the recreational, competitive and educational needs of riders and horse enthusiasts in all disciplines, age groups and skill levels. The venue will provide ample facilities to accommodate large horse events, and already is able to cater to small-to-medium size shows and less formal activities.
The needs of horse people involved in a wide variety of equine disciplines across the state are served at the Horse Park. This world-class venue is fast becoming the “go to place” for breed shows, western competitions, hunter/jumper shows, dressage competitions, three-day events, combined driving and competitive trail riding, to name a few. Local, regional and national competitions will be attracted to the site for its comprehensive offerings and stunning setting.
The Horse Park also serves those interested in less formal equestrian activities such as trail riding and back country packing. Connections are being made to join the Coal Mine Trail east of the site and other nearby regional trails.
People of all ages and skill levels are drawn to the Horse Park, and special consideration is given to youth programs and therapeutic riding. Emphasis also is placed on fostering education and training through clinics, demonstrations, seminars and camps.

ALL ABOUT THE CREATOR OF HIGH HORSE LA.
Well, Hello World, Michelle here.
This is my “First Rodeo” at launching a Brand. I’m just “chomping at the bit” to get out there, and just see where it can go. Just me, a girl, and her High Horse?
My background is British and European. I have lived in Los Angeles! California since 1992. I consider myself a “Brit Gone LA”.
I’ve been “in fashion” since I could crawl. Honing in my European influences, love of color, and looking on point. I became a Fashion Stylist.
Often, whatever I am wearing, I get compliments. I had the Horse necklace custom made for myself. Next thing, everyone I met loved the necklace. When they inquired as to – who was it by, and where did I buy it………??
“I love your necklace, where did you get it ?”
I almost felt like I was disappointing them by saying “well, it’s my design, and it’s custom made”
Next thing, I’m discussing with the original jeweler about having some small batches made. Adding, Rose gold, and Rhodium ( superior to Silver ) now offering 3 high-quality finishes.
Finally, the Horses are here, and ready to gallop to their new owners.
I welcome any inquiries, especially media?

“With summer’s sunny days can come extreme heat. Such situations can cause worry for owners as they struggle to help their horses adjust, stay healthy, and remain comfortable. But with a well-thought-out management plan, horses can stay cool and comfy in the midst of summer.
To help get you started on the right track, TheHorse.com caught up with Nancy Loving, DVM, an equine practitioner in Boulder, Colorado, to find out what the most important things to consider are when caring for horses in extreme heat.
When dealing with hot temperatures, Loving said the most important thing an owner can do is provide his or her horse with plenty of fresh water.
“Clean water should always be available; an average horse needs five to seven gallons of water per day in cool weather, while in hot weather, requirements for maintenance and to compensate for losses in sweat may prompt intake of 20 gallons or more per day,” she explained. “Horses in a herd should have access to a couple of water tanks spaced a distance apart so dominant horses don’t prevent a thirsty, more timid horse from drinking.
Adding an electrolyte supplement to your horse’s diet could help keep him drinking and restore the electrolyte balances disrupted by sweating, and horses should have access to a salt block or receive a daily salt supplement (no more than a tablespoon per day) to allow them to meet their dietary sodium chloride requirements.
Additionally, she added that for a horse that doesn’t drink well, offering a watery gruel of a supplement (such as complete feed pellets) rather than feeding them dry can help increase the horse’s water intake.
Insects are another concern that accompany increasing temperatures, Loving said.
“Hot weather brings insects so don’t forget to use fly sheets, insect repellant, and during active insect times of day, it can help to bring your horse into the barn and use fans to create airflow that foils the ability of flying insects to hover around your horse,” she added, as many biting flies are poor fliers.”
