Denver Real Estate Superb for Reining Festival

Oh, for a respite from the wild broncos of our Denver and Colorado real estate markets!  Let’s take a few moments to marvel over the International Reining Festival October 15 – 19, 2008 in downtown Denver Colorado real estate.  Denver is home to some of the most exquisite and most humble Colorado horse properties in the nation—all pleasantly located near fabulous rodeo competitions and horse shows held at the National Western Complex (NWC).  Our Denver CO homes and Colorado ranches enjoy a prime location along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.

As the fastest growing sport in the equine industry, reining events are designed to showcase the maneuvers of a working ranch horse.  The judging of what is called “Western Dressage” highlights the athletic ability of a horse through the performance of required elements such as small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, roll backs over the hocks, and 360 degree spins.  Watching the horses execute sliding stops is a highlight of the competition.

This year’s includes a full slate of ancillary classes, the NRHA Mountain Regional Affiliate Finals, Mile High Derby, Stallion Select Futurity, and Challenger’s Cup Freestyle Reining.  Athletes from all corners of the globe participate in the world-class equestrian event.  The International also includes an expansive trade show, numerous hospitality events and outstanding spectator experiences.  New this year is the $100,000 Lot for Grassroots Non Pro Awards Program.

Located near the intersection of Interstates 70 and 25 and the Denver International Airport, the National Western provides educational opportunities and provides opportunities for producers and consumers throughout the world and hosts the premier Stock Show, Rodeo, Horse Show and other year-round events.  In 2006, the first International Reining Festival offered a thrilling equestrian sport and the reining discipline is now an Olympic sport. 

The NWC has recently completed a $30 million expansion program and with more than 600,000 square feet, it one of the most modern, user-friendly facilities anywhere.  So, when we host an event at the National Western Complex, it is well attended by happy crowds.  The metro trade area showcases a growing market with disposable income.  Besides residents of real estate within the Downtown and Greater Denver regions, affiliates come from the Reining Horse Associations of the Central Plains, Cowboys States, Eastern Plains, Idaho, Intermountain, Montana, Northern Rockies, Rocky Mountain, Western Slope, and Yellowstone, in addition to the Snake River Reining Alliance.

Maybe we can transfer skills developed reining in a horse to reining in our spending habits and our economy?   For more information about horse properties and real estate in the metro area, call Michael Paul of Realty Oasis at (303) 268-6052.
