Galway Downs International organizers have canceled the event’s upcoming CCI3* due to lack of entries. The event, to be held Nov. 1-4 in Temecula, California, will still host CC1*, CCI2* and horse trials divisions.

“This year’s three-star class has been canceled due to lack of horsepower, but we will regroup for 2019 when the preparation for the Olympic Games in Tokyo will provide for much larger demand at the top international levels,” says Robert Kellerhouse.

2018 marks Galway Downs’ 20th anniversary and strong attendance is reported for the other divisions. “Our field of 300 horses this year includes 15 CCI2*, 55 CCI1* and 30 Training Three-Day entries,” Robert confirms. Cross country day on Saturday, Nov. 3, will feature plenty of spectator entertainment including live music at the Temecula Jamboree with country-western artists Jerrod Niemann, Cassidy Pope and Chase Bryant — click here for tickets.
