Hugh Lochore joins Paso Robles eventing venue as cross-country course designer.

Twin Rivers Ranch welcomes world-renowned cross-country course designer Hugh Lochore as their new cross country course designer for the Intermediate through CCI4* levels, beginning with the International event staged in September. This will be the first time FEI divisions will be included in the Fall Horse Trials in several years as the organizing committee expanded the program following record entries at their April FEI event.

“We are very excited to welcome Hugh to our team at Twin Rivers. We look forward to having some new eyes on the property to get a fresh crack at the courses,” Twin Rivers organizer Connie Baxter said. “This fall will allow Hugh to get used to the property and the flow of the show, in order to really put forward a new vision for 2020.”

Lochore is excited to bring his experience to Twin Rivers. Having designed all over the United States and the world, he has an amazing eye for developing courses which incorporate the natural terrain of a property, creating a positive flow for both horses and riders. Lochore is visiting the venue and is excited to continue to work with Tommy Nenneman and his team of course builders, at Twin Rivers to get a feel for the courses and elements at the venue.

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to design courses at Twin Rivers and work with the Baxter family. I have been a fan of this venue for quite a long time, and I look forward to the opportunity of utilizing some of the wonderful elements already present while adding my own touch to the courses at this prominent West Coast venue,” Lochore adds.

Jeff and Connie Baxter, owners of Twin Rivers Ranch, have hosted eventing competitions since 2004 and with more record-breaking numbers predicted, they welcomed competitors to the first fall FEI event that Twin Rivers has hosted in several years.

Twin Rivers Ranch appreciates the generosity of the following sponsors: APF, Estrella Equine Hospital, Ice Horse, Professional’s Choice, Riding Warehouse, and Whirlwind Excavating.
