Horse Events

The horse program at the Fairgrounds has a rich history. Many of the adults who have grown up riding with us now have children and grandchildren riding with us. We are working hard to improve the horse show and practice areas.

The Fairgrounds has made a major improvement in the group camping areas. In addition to our 133 camping sites available in the state licensed campgrounds on the north end of the grounds, we have added several "Group Camping" areas in the wooded areas around the showgrounds and barns. These areas are available for all show weekends and by arrangement with the camp host at other times.

Overnight stabling is available at the fairgrounds. Interstate travel papers (where required) and proof of negative Coggins test are needed for each horse. Please contact the Camp Host for all the details.

General rules for horses at the fairgrounds:

All horses brought to the fairgrounds must have proof of negative Coggins test as required by State Law. No smoking within 30 feet of the barns.  Keep Aisles and walkways clear.

Clean up after your horses and yourselves.  Horses are not allowed in the Main Campground or grass areas west and south of the showgrounds.  Clean up around your trailer if you tie your horses out.  Do not apply hoof black or other treatments on paved areas.
