- Friday Dressage and CT Cones: The Dressage Phase will take place in the Turf Arena on the North end of the property. Please enter through the main gate and follow the signs to the north end of the property to park on the road to the west of the Turf arena.
- The Cones Phase for the CT will take place in the south grass field, please park in the main lot by the pavilion and follow the spectator signs to the event viewing area.
- It is recommended that you drive between the two spectator parking areas, rather than walking as they are on opposite ends of the property. Please be extremely cautious while driving through the property and respect the 15MPH speed limit. There are many horses using the same roads, equines always have the right of way.
- Saturday Marathon: The Marathon Phase will take place in the center of the property just behind the Main Pavilion. Please park in the main parking lot and walk down to the obstacle viewing area.
- Sunday CDE Cones: The Cones Phase for the CDE will take place in the Turf Arena at the north of the property. Please enter through the main gate and follow the signs to the north end of the property to park on the road to the west of the Turf arena.
We will do our best to provide chairs, but they are first come first serve. You may want to bring your own chairs to ensure you will have somewhere to sit. The Galloping Gourmet food truck will be open for breakfast and lunch for this event. The Black Prong Bar & Grill will open for dinner service at 5 PM. There is a facility map on the main event page, please refer to it when planning your trip!
