Horse Jump Dedication at Queeny Park
To express their gratitude to St. Louis County Parks and Recreation, QPEE dedicated the jump, called the "QP Tower" to the Queeny Park's staff and management. The signature horse jump of the Queeny Parks Equestrian Events, Inc. was dedicated on Wednesday, May 30, 2001 in Queeny Park, by Richard Wessel, then vice-president of QPEE and Marvin Harwood, then president of QPEE to Genie Zakrzewski, Director of St. Louis County Parks and Recreation. QPEE founder, Richard Wessel gave a speech recognizing the efforts of the park employees in aiding the continuation of the Queeny Park Horse Trials.
Zakrzewski acknowledges this partnership, "We're quite enthused about this valuable arrangement with QPEE. For over 20 years, our partnership with QPEE has provided and continues to provide fun and exciting events to our County residents and guests who have a special interest in equestrian events."
