Stopped here while visiting and took in some horse shows for the day along with vendors selling their wares. Big beautiful facility that must be a treat for anyone who shows to attend. Plenty of parking, concession type food, and bathroom facilities. Glad we stopped and checked it out.

Great place to show! We were there during a major storm, but because of the area being enclosed all was good. Beautiful setting as well.
