The Colorado Horse Park dedicated its first name-branded arena on Wednesday. The Coles Family Arena was made possible by Daryl and Michele Coles from Wellington, Florida. While The Colorado Horse Park has received many sponsorships and donations over the years, the Coles Family Arena becomes the first branded structure on the grounds.
“The Coles’ contribution allowed us to make critical improvements for safety and to provide an outstanding, state of the art experience for our competitors,” said Executive Director Meme Dunckel Martin. “As a not for profit organization, generous gifts such as these are essential to the continued improvements of the facility.”
This is the third year that the Coles have brought their daughters to compete on the four week Colorado Summer Circuit at the Colorado Horse Park. “We loved it from the first time that we came here,” said Daryl Coles. “Everyone was so nice. We are honored and proud to be a part of this and we enjoy spending our summers here.”
