2018 Horse Shows 

    PLEASE PASS  THE WORD - SHOW IS CANCELLED FOR  Saturday October 13  -   - Benefit for Shining Stars Therapeutic Riding Program

THERE IS JUST NO WAY WE CAN GET TRAILERS IN TO PARK WITH THE RAIN THAT WE HAD THIS WEEK AND WHAT THEY ARE CALLING FOR TONIGHT.  IT IS JUST TOO WET.  

Thank you for all your understanding.  It has been a tough year.  We are going to try and reschedule this one for in early spring.

STAYTUNED FOR ANY OTHER UPDATES.  Thank you for understanding all the changes.  The weather has been quite challenging this year.
