Now, as the Beautification Award recipient for 2017 from the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce, the park, its owner, and staff will be honored at the Annual Gala on February 3 at the Paso Robles Inn Ballroom. “The Paso Robles Horse Park will help Paso become more than wine country. Their contribution will help Paso emerge as a world-class equestrian destination as well,” said Chamber Chairman Matt McClish. “The benefits to our community are obvious and we are thrilled to offer our support and recognize their contribution to the community.” Opened in May 2015, the state-of-the-art equestrian competition and event facility, located at 3801 Hughes Parkway, has hosted a variety of local wine and food events, festivals, sporting, fundraising, and equestrian events. Owner Linda Starkman grew up coming to Paso on vacation with her grandfather. Throughout her life, she has competed in and bred horses for the sport of show jumping. For decades, she had a vision of bringing together this sport with her love of Paso Robles and the Central Coast. OF THE YEAR WORLD CLASS EQUESTRIAN AND EVENT FACILITY SHOWCASES THE BEAUTY OF PASO ROBLES Linda Starkman & Buddy Through the Paso Robles Horse Park, Linda has been able to bring that dream to life. “This award gives so much credit to Linda’s vision,” said Paso Robles Horse Park Director Amanda Diefenderfer. “She feels honored, and the rest of the team is thrilled; they take a lot of pride in the facility. An award like this is wonderful recognition of the work the entire team puts into highlighting the surrounding landscape and keeping the park pristine. It is a beautiful and peaceful place and each of us on the team are proud to work here.” Diefenderfer gave accolades to David Brown and his team at Mari Landscaping for the, “incredible support they provide to maintain the beauty throughout the park. There is a lot of love and a lot of hours put into this park. Our full-time park staff support David’s team, and we take a lot of pride in the work they do.” This past year, the park was converted into a non-profit foundation – the Paso Robles Horse Park Foundation – as a way to give back to the local community. Events hosted at the facility and activities supported by the work of the foundation support its mission to promote accessibility to equestrian activities while raising funds to support and enhance education, health, and quality of life, particularly for the handicapped and underprivileged.
