We welcome all competitors from local stables, including our Red Gate Farm students. Our facility boasts excellent footing, great judges, an indoor with an outdoor warmup, and a beautiful climate-controlled viewing gallery that overlooks the indoor arena. Our shows have always been fun and our staff is friendly and helpful.

Come and join us! Ribbons are awarded to the top 6 riders in each division. Riders in the introductory division will receive a completion ribbon if they finish but are outside the top 6.
