This rate includes stalls, bedding, tack stalls, dressing rooms, hauling, show preparation, and office fees. It does NOT include tipping. 


Post Show Expenses: Any extra costs such as additional bedding, higher entry fees or additional classes, shoeing, or any medication needed will be billed after the show. 


Rental Fees: If using a barn owned harness, driving cart, or tail switches the following fees will be applied per class

* Harness and Cart: $100 per class

* Switch or Cap: $50 per class


Tipping: We are fortunate to have such great help at the show. You will be notified of whom the grooms are at the show. At most shows, $40-$75 is appropriate per class. Take into consideration if your horse wears additional tails, braces, etc.
