For more than 25 years Hayes Co. has been host to top show jumping in North America. In 1984, Jay, Shawn and a group of horse enthusiasts created a one-week event in Sutton, Ontario that moved two years later to create the Collingwood Horse Shows. As one of Eastern Canada's largest hunter/jumper events, Hayes Co. decided to expand this event to two weeks of back-to-back competition in 1998. The Collingwood Horse Shows celebrated 21 years in 2006 and after much expansion and out growing the facility, Hayes Co. moved their success to Nepean, Ontario. Where, for four solid years, the National Capital Show Jumping Tournaments flourished under Hayes Co. management. In 2012, one of the greatest opportunities presented itself; Hayes Co. was able to move to the town they call home, Orangeville. Hayes Co. brought leading riders, trainers, and owners from all over North America to compete at the Orangeville Show Jumping Tournament.
