Fears Of Disease Prompt Organizers To Cancel Horse Show

August 20, 2015

The Daily Sentinel reports organizers voted Wednesday to cancel the inaugural Colorado Canyons Color Classic at the Mesa County Fairgrounds.

More than 200 horses had signed up for the exhibition on Saturday and Sunday with participants coming from Arizona, Wyoming, Utah and California. All but 70 participants had withdrawn because of fears surrounding vesicular stomatitis by the time the show was canceled.
