This educational program running throughout the horse show will educate the non-equestrian public on the equestrian sports that are in the Summer Olympics! Free to the public, this will be a great way to spend the day with the family learning about equestrian sports while watching horse enthusiasts of all experience levels compete in Dressage, Combined Training, and Jumping!
We will also have vendors and concessions available. Bring a chair or blanket, some sunscreen, and maybe a little fly spray so that you can sit back and enjoy the day!
