Welcome to Black Prong! The Nature Coast CDE & CT is taking place all across the property, on Friday and Saturday. The competition begins at 9:00 AM each day and will continue through the afternoon.

- Dressage: The Dressage Phase on Friday will take place in the Turf Arena at the North end of the property. Please enter through the main gate, drive around the Main Pavillion and Pool to the limerock road. At the bottom of the hill where the road splits, turn right to head up the limerock road to the north end of the property. Continue until you see the All-Weather and Turf Arenas. There will be spectator parking along the road to the left.
- Cones: The Cones Phase will take place primarily on Friday, simultaneous to the Dressage phase. A small number of competitors will compete in Cones on Saturday from 9 AM- 10:30 AM. Cones will take place in the large grass paddock on the south end of the property. Please park in the main parking lot and walk down past the tiny homes and airstream trailers to the south grass arena. If you wish to watch both Dressage and Cones, we recommend driving in between parking areas rather than walking the length of the property.
- Marathon: The Marathon Phase will take place on Saturday at 10:30 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.
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. There is a facility map on the main event page. Our food truck is not yet open, so please bring any snacks and drinks with you.
