This is a fun fund raising event for children of all ages and adults. The games DO NOT require any type of training for your horse. The horse does not need to be registered but must have a negative Coggins (this is for the protection of all of our horses). If you would like to attend and do not have a horse to participate with, we have members who have horses that can be borrowed.
In addition to the in-hand games, we also have a driving arena and can set up a cones course for those who are interested in trying this. If you do not have a trained driving horse and are interested in trying mini driving, we have horses that can be driven by beginners.
AWARDS will be given for the high point youth and the high point adult winners!
