Hold onto your hats, HIPICO Santa Fe is back for a summer full of fun and ferocious competition. We LOVE this series because, despite the fact that it is a fairly new circuit, it packs a punch in the form of competitor and spectator satisfaction. Each week is loaded with exciting classes and opportunities for everyone in the community to get involved. Check out some of these beautiful images from week one exclusively on Jumper Nation!
