Happy Holidays to all our horsey friends. Fingers crossed for a better new year!
[09/23/20] It is with great sadness we will not be able to get our last show in this year. ☹️. We want to wish everyone a great rest of the year and stay safe and healthy! We r looking forward to a great new year in 2021! With lots more show! 🤞🤞
Want to thank everyone who attending our show today! We had a great day! Little cold in beginning but turned out beautiful! So many new faces too! I especially want to shout out a huge Thank you to Jenniffer Longwell for being my side kick today! To our judge Danielle Stanke. For taking the time with everyone. To Henry and Sammi Schoelier for your help and everyone else who jumped in!
To Rhonda Barringer and everyone else at the fair grounds for sponsoring our shows and supporting us. For providing us with the cook shack with great food.
I hope to see these shows continue for years to come, as it gives us great pleasure to see all the little smiling faces on those first time riders, drivers, and happy faces on those moving up and trying new things! That is what showing is all about! Thank You all!
[06/25/20] To make clear to guidelines, riders and essential people may attend.
Gm everyone! Hope u r excited as we r to get back to normal. We can’t wait to see everyone and get back to normal!
With that said, we are in need of volunteers the morning of the show to help with sign ins. Basically copy off entry forms into class list. Very easy! This will help get the show started on time or close too. Please send me message sign ins can start as early as 7, but any and all help is appreciated, as these are put on by strictly volunteers. Thanks
[06/10/20] Ye Ha! We have a show date! Go to events for details

[07/18/19] Hey everyone. seeing how you are all doing and enjoying summer thus far. I am not sure if we can get two more shows in or not, but at least one. so here is poll. Thanks
[05/04/19] GM, It is with deep regrets we are going to have to postpone today's show until June 8th. The ring is way to muddy, not even drag-gable. This is def a safety issue. We Were so excited for today but mother nature had other thoughts. Please share and tag :( :( :(
[05/03/19] Please remember, rabies has to be dated from May 5 2018 to current and coggins after may 5, 2017 so rabies is good for 1 year and coggins we take 2 yrs. papers must be complete and in hand. rabies lot number and sigs. No Exceptions!
[05/03/19] Ok we r going to give this a shot! 20% rain on sat. The ring is looking good, it was dragged today and will drag again sat morning after tomorrow s rain. So cross fingers. If weather is horrible double check the group and page before heading out sat in case last min cancel. If u don’t see anything by 7 am then we r on. Safe travels. Share, and start tagging.
