2017 Summer in the Rockies - Grand Prix!
June 22, 2017
Transwest is a sponsor of the $30,000 Grand Prix prize at the 2017 Summer In The Rockies series. The Grand Prix is the highlight of the Summer In the Rockies series that welcomes all spectator and families. You can cheer on horses and riders as they navigate a course of jumps 5' tall.
This year Chenoa McElvain of Lemitar, NM, and Wallstreet RC captured the win on Saturday, June 10.
Some fun facts about the winner of the 2017 Summer In The Rockies Grand Prix prize:
- Chenoa bought Wallstreet as a five-year-old, and has been working with him for five years now.
- This year they did their first $1 Million Grand Prix together, the biggest class that either has jumped.
- Wallstreet has a trick that he does on-cue, for kisses or treats. If you point your finger up in the air, he will put his nose up like he smells something funny.
