If the weather cooperates, we'll use the outdoor arena for obstacles, and we'll also be able to use the indoor arena to instruct people on the Dressage patterns, giving people even more opportunities to learn! If it's raining, though, we'll all be in the indoor arena (at least we'll be cozy!).

Please plan on bringing your own lunch/snacks/beverages/chair and a water bucket for your horse.
