We are a 501(c)3 non-profit incorporated 2010 to support Horseshoe Park Equestrian Centre in Queen Creek, AZ. as well as to help foster the rural heritage of Queen Creek.

We are here to help, organize and run special events at the Horseshoe Park Equestrian Centre in Queen Creek, AZ. From team roping to livestock shows and barrel racing to dressage, we are here to help! Horseshoe Park is also available for use for weddings, car shows, dances and BBQs.  We host Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek, an annual community event which celebrates the Queen Creek rural heritage by providing multiple days of family oriented fun centered around an agricultural theme.

If you are interested in getting involved and seeing the ‘behind the scenes’ to horse and rural related events, contact us to volunteer! Whether you’ve always grown up around horses and livestock or never stepped foot in an arena, we’ll have a job for you! How cool would it be to register contestants in a bull riding or pull the chutes for the mutton bustin or help another local non-profit with an event at HPEC?   Get involved today!    Check out our current & past projects here.
