Please be prepared with your own support to be able to accommodate whatever horse/tack changes you need to make. Riding multiple horses in the same class may not be feasible. Hors Concours: Riders may opt to rind in front of a judge and receive comments and scores but not be placed in the class. These rides may be out of order to meet time/spacing requirements of the rider who isn’t concerned with the placings or awards. Hors Concours (HC) riders shall wear their number upside down while riding to indicate they are not competing.

Concessions are available on the show grounds. The “ol’ Western Bunk House” may be available for your group. Contact Gwen.
