Mark Bellissimo continues to sell assets from the portfolio of equestrian and real estate properties he manages from his base in Wellington, Florida. He has now let go of the Colorado Horse Park.
Singletree Equestrian, a group of Littleton Equine Medical Center veterinarians and key stakeholders, purchased the Colorado Horse Park.
“This venue has been such an asset to the Colorado and multi-state regional horse community and will continue to be an asset to our Colorado Equestrian community. The beautiful grounds will stay a refuge in a sea of new homes and a connection to the Douglas County rural past,” the press statement issued by Littleton Equine Medical Center stated.
Krieble – Bellissimo
The 148-acre Colorado Horse Park was founded by Helen Krieble in 1992.
Since the winter of 2014-2015 the Colorado Horse Park was owned by “Colorado Equestrian Partners (CEP),” another investment venture Mark Bellissimo ran alongside assets owned by his company “Wellington Equestrian Partners”. Michael Stone worked as president of CEP.
In December 2014, Dressage News stated that the partners in CEP included Mark and his now ex-wife Katherine Bellissimo, Roger and Jennifer Smith, Howard and Gwen Dvorkin, Lisa Lourie and Diana and Jenji Mercer.
Competitions at the Colorado Horse Park
The Colorado Horse Park hosted the 1998, 2000, 2008 and 2016 North American Junior/Young Riders Championships and a CDI in 2017. In 2020 the park closed its boarding facility but continued to run competitions there.
“We will continue to host the national and international shows in coordination with Langer Equestrian Group,” the new owners stated. “Over the next few years we plan to create a world class equine hospital and referral center at the horse park, as well as continuing to improve and expand the horse show facility. We couldn’t ask for a better partner in producing our horse shows than LEG Shows & Events.
Eurodressage covered its very first international show for its website at the 1998 NAYRC at the Colorado Horse Park.
