Limited water is available in camp for horses only. There will be a bonfire on Friday and Saturday nights after meeting & awards. All dogs must be on a leash at all times – No Exceptions!

Vet-in will begin at 4pm on Friday and Saturday. Entries will be taken on site, but getting your entry in by November 18th helps us plan enough vets.
