In all arenas please clean up after your horse, we have placed a bucket and pitchfork to do so. You have cross ties to hold your horse during the time of clean up, clean up consists of removing manure as well as dumping the manure bucket at the manure pit located between the barn and community center. Clean up will help keep the arena in good repair for much longer. In additon, when using jumps in any of the non jump arenas, please return jumps back to where they came from.
