  • No Central Park Show This Year

    Maybe next year? I attended it once. It was fun, but obviously a huge logistical challenge.

    too bad, I know they got 5* approval for this year as well, but the riders are gonna pick the GCT shows with the bigger prize money over this. I do hope they come back next year. Perhaps pushing out to October?
    Talking to some people is like folding a fitted sheet.

      I think it would be hard to hold it in October if they want to attract the top hunter riders, who will be busy at Indoors. If, in fact, they want to continue having hunter classes there.

        Took them long enough to announce it! Disappointing, but being cancelled the last two years doesn't make me hopeful that it will actually be back. I really hope I'm wrong though as I thought it was really well done!

          The show schedule is so packed that it's not possible to just decide you want to have a big horse show and assume riders will show up. There's so many conflicts that they can't attract enough top-tier entries to make it worth it.

          CPHS is always in September. This year, between Labor Day and Oct 1, you have the Hampton Classic, a 5* at HITS Saugerties, Gold Cup, LGCT Montreal, and LGCT Governor's Island. (There's also a Rome and a St Tropez LGCT. Plus, the horses from the Pan Ams will have returned home in mid-August and will be resting or just getting back to work.)

          I went to the arena eventing in 2017 and remember some insane situation where a bunch of the riders had competed that day at a big event (Plantation Field?) taken a train to NYC in the afternoon, and shown under the lights that night.

          What would make most sense is to take the Gold Cup dates and have Gold Cup in the city, but I think no one would actually want that except ESP...

            No Central Park, but it looks like the NY Masters is going to be an annual event, and now there is GCT @ Governer's Island.
