Fieldstone Show Park Continues Improvements for 2013 Show Season

Halifax, MA - January 21, 2013 - Twenty-seven years ago, the Fieldstone show grounds were 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. The Vendor Village is in Phase One of this project, along with the raised VIP Pavilion and Trainer/Rider Pavilion, surround by 750' of beautiful stonewalls. A 16' high stone lighthouse was also created for videotaping the grand prix field and in 2014 videotaping of the main hunter ring. Phase One of the project is expected to be completed for this years, May Spring Festival, while Phase Two of the project will start in the fall of 2013, for a complete reconstruction and redesign of the competition rings including under the ring drainage for all the competition rings and warm-up arenas.


"We have a wonderful base of local exhibitors, but we want to begin attracting more riders from outside of New England," explained Fieldstone Show Park President Scott Clawson. "Everything is geared towards New York and there are no show grounds in eastern New England. There are a lot of horses and barns in the area, and I think it's important to showcase what we have available for the Boston area. We are just 20 miles from Boston and seven miles from Plymouth, so it offers the perfect destination for exhibitors and spectators."


"Scott is making the improvements because he wants the horse shows to expand," noted show manager Michael Morrissey of Stadium Jumping. "Fieldstone is a beautiful facility with a great setting, and by tweaking the schedule and adding different classes and prize money the shows will certainly grow."


Creating the new location for vendor village will maximize the exhibitor and spectator traffic flow, and visibility was a top priority. In 2013, Fieldstone hopes to double spectator traffic. Clawson has turned his attention entirely to the physical property, riding surfaces, stabling and rider and horse creature comforts. Miles of drainage pipes have been added underground. Every tent pad on the property had been raised a critical eighteen inches, rebuilt and resurfaced to ensure dry and comfortable stabling.


An impressive project has been undertaken to raise the entire spectator/VIP area surrounding the Grand Prix Field by four feet. The look and feel of the project has been emphasized with a stonewall that frames both sides of the new structure. Post-season slice seeding, leveling, and meticulous care of the Grand Prix Field and Schooling areas were undertaken just days after the end of the August Summer Festival. The all-weather GCT rings were also cared for with more GCT fabric being added, sand being refreshed and time taken to re-level and insure the best surfaces. Critical roads were also widened, resurfaced and expanded to make entry, trucking and access to the property substantially improved.


"In the fall of 2103, right after the season is over, we will do a complete ring change to move the Main Hunter Ring next to the Grand Prix Field so that the VIP Area is located directly between them as part of Phase Two," added Clawson. "We're expanding further and further towards the north end of the property, and we hope these improvements will help Fieldstone become one of the top horse show venues in the country."
