We are so excited to see you at Equus!  Please read below for all the important details about this weekend’s event.  



Horses are welcome to come for the day on Sunday or stay Friday and Saturday night in 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, you don't need to bring shavings, unless you'd like to.  Please bring a pitch fork, shovel/dustpan and broom to clean out your stall. Wheelbarrows will be available. If your stalls are not clean when you check out, remember we have your information and you will be charged a hefty fine.
