Heritage Park offers Starter through Preliminary Level competitive horse trials. All new courses were revealed in 2016 with a new course designer. Courses for 2017 will included new fences and a completely rebuilt and expanded water complex as well as several new questions. Our course designer describes the courses as follows: all courses are over mowed grass park land with open rolling hillocks with no significant elevation changes. There are a few wooded areas that will be galloped through. N, T, P will have maximum size fences on course so do not consider this a “move up course”, however, the courses should be considered standard for their level.
The beautiful Heritage Park is located at 168th & Pflumm Road in Olathe, KS. MACTA works in conjunction with the Johnson County Parks Department to maintain the equestrian facility at this venue.
Heritage Park is well-designed for the spectator, coach and competitor. Stabling is conveniently located to the secretary’s tent, warm-up areas and competition sites for all three phases. The cross-country courses are set on open, slightly rolling aerovated terrain which offers excellent viewing of numerous fences.
