Aug 3rd Update:

  • Check out the NEW Finding you way around SGF which includes getting to and from cross country
  • During dressage in ring 3 you will have to either go around ring 3 or wait until the completion of a test to get to show jumping.  The ring should be done by 10:00
  • Please: ONLY recycling in the recycling cans and ONLY garbage in the garbage barrels.  There are extra bags in case they should get full.
  • We sometimes have a bee problem in the stabling area, there is bee spray on the table in the dome
  • Stalls must be left stripped if you have not paid for the stall cleaning service.
  • Parking in the stabling area is ONLY for those who have stalls.  Cars are NOT to be parked in trailer spots. Please ask the parking attendant if you have any questions.
  • Here’s the link for times, stall assignments and results
  • Please be ready to ride at your scheduled time as the schedule is tight.  As soon as the horse before you does their final salute, enter the ring and take one lap around the inside of the ring at the trot then exit and wait for the signal to start.
