Also in trail class if you want to wear disposable gloves to open the mail box and work the gate that is fine and won’t get marked down. Remember to social distance! See you all tomorrow! 🐴😃
This will be the trail pattern for the show on Tuesday! Also, we are going back to normal entries and no longer taking any pre entries. Please enter at the show like normal!
Also a reminder about attire. You must have a collared shirt or KHP t shirt. 18 and under must wear a helmet. See you Tuesday! 🤠

Just a reminder you can enter at the show and park yourself but be mindful of distancing yourself please! Spectator parking is on the right hand side so horse trailers need to stay on the left side of the driveway (north side). We will also have drinks only available for sale at the booth (pop, water and ￼ gatorade for $1).
We are need of gate volunteers as a couple of our usual helpers are bailing hay and unavailable to help tomorrow. Please let us know if you can be there! Each show night our volunteers are entered in a drawing to win a gift certificate to a local business!
See you all tomorrow! 🐎🐴🤠
