We are not dedicated or serious horse people but we stopped in to check out this event. Both educational, especially for serious riders or trainers, and encouraging given their mission. This is a "family" of horse lovers who are championing a worthy cause of training and making previously wild mustangs adoptable. A lot of effort put into the human/horse relationship.... More

Stopped here while visiting and took in some horse shows for the day along with vendors selling their wares. Big beautiful facility that must be a treat for anyone who shows to attend. Plenty of parking, concession type food, and bathroom facilities. Glad we stopped and checked it out.

Great place to show! We were there during a major storm, but because of the area being enclosed all was good. Beautiful setting as well.

Large, and nicely-kept show facility. Plenty of stall space. Convenient location a few minutes off the highway, so easy to get to. Very well-suited to the larger shows. I didn't give it 5 stars because there were limited food choices when I used to show there. But I like the facility itself.

My daughter rode here for the first time for a competition. What a nice place and extremely well run, very organized and clean. If you are traveling with dogs, some of the arenas do not allow which is a good thing as dogs can spook horses.
