Can my child pet the horses?2022-07-06T15:39:09-05:00

No. Safety is of utmost importance at the show. Spectators are discouraged from interrupting horses and riders preparing for competition. However, touring the barn aisles and watching from the sidelines is a great way to experience equestrian life, learn about the horses, trainers and riders. If you’d like to learn more about a horse, or a rider, don’t hesitate to ask! As equestrians, we love the sport, and enjoy nothing more than helping others learn what it’s like to partner with such a kind, willing and incredible animal.
