Our plan is to set up a challenge course that will involve heads, rings, quintain, javelin, tent pegging, maybe reeds, a gate, a pedestal, and maybe some other things. We have 12 stalls available (and the price is only $10 for the weekend). The site owner asks that everyone brings their own buckets, etc. so we don’t pass around any illnesses between our equine friends. We will also be able to authorize ground crew and riders if needed.
