in both. In the single wagon obstacle course you can only show one time. We will not allow time to
change horses.
Horses must have a current Coggins in order to enter the fairgrounds, (Proof of test must be
available. Must also have proof of liability insurance. Canadian horses will need a Coggins and an
endorsed Health Certificate to cross the border on a 72 hour pass. (Contact a Canadian Veterinarian to
obtain these papers.)
ANYONE WHO SHOWS A HORSE MUST REGISTER UDER HIS/HER NAME.
Horses may stay on the grounds overnight for 1 night only.
For public health reasons you will be asked to clean up after your horse during your stay on the fairgrounds.
A convenient disposal site will be provided. In the event of an extra large turn-out we may be forced to
limit the number of horses that one person may enter into the single horse events. (This will allow a fair dispersal of the prize money, and allow for the event to proceed at a reasonable pace.)
