Help Us to Help You

Sponsor Pic

For those of you who have been coming to our farm over the years, you are aware that we do our best to keep fees as reasonable possible while continuing to make improvements that benefit all who come to the farm.  We have been able to do that by doing the majority of the work ourselves but Dave & I aren’t getting any younger and  we still have to buy materials and pay for work that we can’t do ourselves.

With all the expense that we incurred with the recent facility improvement we have thought long and hard about passing some of the expense on to you, the competitor. We could charge higher entry & schooling fees, add a grounds fee or office fees.  Although some entry fees have gone up slightly we have decided that we will not be charging grounds fees or office fees at this time. As a result of that decision, we are going to try the sponsorship route this year.

Asking for money is not something that I enjoy doing and I’m not very good at but here goes.  Please check out the new Sponsorship page and see if there is a level of sponsorship that works for you or perhaps you might know someone who would like to become a sponsor.  Any type of sponsorship no matter how large or small could go a long way to help us to continue with improvements while keep fees stable.  But we NEED participation!

We’re hoping that many of you will see the benefit to you, your horses and the sport  participating in our quest to have a vibrant sponsorship program. Thanks for your consideration.  We’re looking forward to hearing from you and to another busy season!

2018 Winona Horse Trials Course Decoration

You are invited to take part in the  Cross Country Jump Decorating.  A fun way for the Intercollegiate teams, Pony Clubs or stables to display their team spirit or simply friends and individuals having some fun while tapping into their creative side. Use flowers, ferns or other items to create a theme or simply make your fences look great.

We are using the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) sign up so you can log volunteer hours towards volunteer awards.  When you get to the sign up, go to the Friday before the competition to sign up (you may come on a different day but I had to choose one for the signup).  choose the fences you would like to decorate. Cross country maps can be found on the Winona Horse Trials page  Please read the rules and guidelines before registering.

NEW Farm Map

ALL DAY PARKING will be at the bottom of the hill near the stabling and new show jump arena.  In addition the secretary will be located in that area (will vary depending on the competition), food, scores and awards.

There will also be a designated volunteer parking area and check in tent, which again will vary depending on competition. Finally there will be a new covered view area between the parking and the show jump arena.  Scores will be posted there and there will be a ‘photo booth’ area on the back side.
