Trucks and trailers should not be pulling through the ring while riders are warming up or horses are being lunged. Additionally, the speed limit on the grounds is NOT to exceed 5mph at any time. Passing trucks and trailers on the dirt road coming up the show grounds is not allowed. Going forward, the ring will be roped off with spaces left only for horses to fit through. The show grounds are open by 6:00 am so if you wish to get a “good” parking space or require more room to maneuver feel free to come in before the crowds.
The Board will NOT tolerate anyone risking the safety of our horses and riders and will be enforcing this by not allowing people who put others at risk to compete. We value our horse and rider safety above all else and will not be tolerating any violation to this.
All cars (other than show staff) should be parked along the fence line or on the hill. For those requiring handicapped accessible parking, please have a representative contact a member of the board directly and we will instruct you as to where to park and how to get onto the show grounds without risking spooking any of the horses.
