  • This is a must visit equestrian competition facility! Top level international, national and regional events. State of art venue sites. Pristine grounds. Many good food options from reasonable to high end. Free parking and spectator events. We watched stadium jumping of the 2 Day Eventing competition. Vaulting exhibition during division break was excellent. Just the 3 tractor grooming rodeo between divisions was worth the trip!
  • My wife and I love taking our daughter and goddaughter here. They have such a good time riding the horses and carousel. They are 3 and 2 years old so they absolutely love when they man with the bubbles is there blowing bubbles. My wife and I love dining at the restaurants. Last night we ate at Rogers Diner and the food was excellent and the service was great.
