Never having heard previously of Aspen Farms, I read about their Horse Trials in the Nisqually Valley News on September 5, 2013, though the story explained nothing to their readers about them.
So, I decided to research for myself.
I discovered Aspen Farms Horse Trials bring many visitors to the Yelm area annually.
Here is their story from their websites:
“Aspen Farms is set on 240 acres just outside of Yelm, WA and is owned by Jonathan and Suzy Elliot. The rolling terrain makes an ideal event site yet it is close to restaurants, hotels, and a movie theatre. The site hosts two recognized Horse Trials annually with courses from beginner novice through advanced. The facility includes a 100 x 220 indoor arena and several outdoor sand rings.”
