We will be parking in the South parking lot, near the road where the public parks for fair.  People will be allowed to bring in their trailers/horses and unload.  See 'Parking Map' above, detailing the way to drive in and out of the fairgrounds.  Everyone will enter and exit going the same direction.  Please move forward, so others can park behind you.  Trailers can not be left in the fairgrounds.  PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE ON THE GRASS.  The fairgrounds have a hefty fine of $350 for driving/parking on the grass.  

 

Haul Ins:

Horses are welcome to come for the day on Saturday or Sunday or stay Friday and Saturday night in their stall.  Please let us know if your horse will be staying the night, you can reach me at reroper@yahoo.com or 206-713-0197.  There are no additional fees to use the stalls.  If they are staying for the weekend, please bring an adequate amount of shavings.  If they are coming for the day on Saturday or Sunday, you don't need to bring shavings, unless you'd like to.  You're welcome to tie your horse to your trailer.  Please bring a pitch fork and broom to clean out your stall and around your trailer. Wheelbarrows will be available.

Stalls:

We are not charging a stall fee, in order to keep our shows affordable for everyone.  However, there is a $35 fee, if you leave without cleaning your stall.  Please do your part and clean your stall, so we can continue to offer these shows at a reasonable price.  You are welcome to tie to your trailer, if you prefer. 

Liability Waiver - For Non-4H Riders:

You will NEED to have your parent or guardian fill out a medical release waiver if under the age of 18. Please CLICK HERE to print out your waiver and have it signed and ready at check in. We'll also have blank copies for parents/guardians to sign at check in.  If you are registered in 4H, we already have your waiver on file, so there is no need to fill out another one.
