Twenty-seven years ago, the Fieldstone Show Park was built to accommodate one-day horse shows. As time went by, the demand and focus of Fieldstone shifted to multi-day events. During the fall and winter of 2012, the Fieldstone Show Park started an ambitious two-year reconstruction project. These improvements include The Vendor Village, raised VIP Pavilion and Trainer/Rider Pavilion, a 16-foot high stone lighthouse created for videotaping the Grand Prix Field, as well as stabling, footing, infrastructure and competition coordination improvement. The Fieldstone Show Park is also pleased to announce that the final touches are being made on Ring 4, and will be ready just in time for the Fieldstone Spring Festival.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to make the Fieldstone Show Park the premier facility for top competition," President and CEO of the Fieldstone Show Park Scott Clawson stated. "Our team has been working tirelessly over the last year to make improvements for both the exhibitors, horses and spectators. We are pleased to welcome back the Stadium Jumping team, they are vital to maximizing the show's efficiency and management, and the summer series are going to make a memorable season for all."
While competing at the Fieldstone Show Park this spring and summer, exhibitors and their families will also have the opportunity to explore Boston and Cape Cod, as well as taking a short drive to the Plymouth waterfront to where exhibitors can experience whale watches and visit historic Plymouth Plantation and The Mayflower.
