Afton Driving Park Fun and Schooling Horse Shows

Afton shows are geared towards fun and learning, beginners to experienced. Everyone is welcome. Judges are helpful with advice and pointers.

[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.

[05/02/19]   I see a lot of interest but not many goings on event. Come on peoples. I would love the shows to continue! We r doing our best considering the weather to make this happen!

Really simple, just transfer the names into the books under the classes. This will help get the shows going on time. Just come find me in the morning or comment below. There are also a few other jobs such as receptionist, who does checking coggins, collecting money, announcer and the most important job is the ribbon kids.

[03/09/17]   Hello everyone! We are so excited to get the dates on the board for this year. I wanted to point out a few things to everyone coming with a horse to shows whether showing or not, Some like to come and just introduce them around the grounds. So with that said, please note the following and there will be NO exceptions!!! All horses entering on the fair grounds showing or not MUST present:
-- Coggins and Rabies must be in hand! no on phone copies will be accepted this year or from here on out.
-- Coggins dated 2016, or 2017
-- Rabies dated with in 1 year of show date
please make sure they are signed, dated and vaccine lot
number is on them.
In the past we have had many new to showing which we had a few exceptions. please go over rules, forms and make sure you have all your paperwork with you before you come. We hate to turn anyone away but we will be doing that this year for safety of all animals on the grounds.
Also when not in the show ring we ask that you do not ride the horses on the driving race track as many of racing boarders use the track during the day. you many use the infield grass area or down behind the arena on grass to warm up.
Pm me if you have any questions
Thanks and Happy Showing!
