Equestrian General Information
- Camping will be along the tree line. See photos and more specifics on the “Site and Activity Maps” page. There is limited highline appropriate trees available (if you want to/prefer to highline, let me know sooner than later via the “Equestrian Registration” form), but most equines will need to be in portable pens.
- Water spigots are available along the road. The site owners have graciously offered to help haul water from the spigots to the water areas using their gator and buckets. Feel free to bring larger buckets for water to limit the need to refill (based on what works best for your equine).
- There will be a manure spreader for manure collection located close to the equestrian camping. The site owners have graciously offered to empty at least once a day (will empty more often depending on how many equines show up to the event).
- Equestrians should register here for ease of check-in at the event.
Is there easy access to water for my horses or do I need to bring a hose and/or additional buckets and/or my own water?
There are spigots around the property, but NOT directly next to the equestrian camping area. However the site owners have offered to haul water for us. Having extra buckets doesn’t hurt.
Is there shade for the horses?
Partially, yes. See the Site map for a better view of what the site looks like. Equestrian camping will be alongside the tree line where indicated on the map. There is not a lot of room IN the trees, but lots of room NEXT to the tree line.
Are there stalls? If not, what space is available to set-up a pen or can I high-line?
Camping will be along the tree line. See photos and more specifics on the “Site and Activity Maps” page. There is limited highline appropriate trees available (if you want to/prefer to highline, let me know sooner than later via the “Equestrian Registration” form), but most equines will need to be in portable pens.
Will my trailer fit in the parking area?
There will be multiple parking options for horse trailers (small to behemoth). Please review the site map & lay-out and contact the EqMiC with specific questions and measurements. It is believed that the Mule Brigade large truck and trailer can maneuver the entrance and park alongside the road, so we believe that others will be fine.
Can I camp in my trailer?
Is there an electricity hookup for my trailer?
There are 2 hookups, but there are NOT near the camping or main event. If you need them, contact the EqMIC for details.
What do we do with manure?
The site owners have a manure spreader that they will empty a couple of times a day and that will be parked near to the equestrian camping area. If you have a pitchfork, please bring it, but there will be easy disposal available.
Do I need to bring a wheelbarrow or extra bucket or extra pitchfork?
An extra manure bucket might help with transporting to the manure spreader and an extra pitchfork is ALWAYS a good idea.
Do I need to show paperwork?
YES. Out of State equines will need a Health Certificate and ALL equines will need to show proof of Coggins. This is by Site Owner requirements.
If so, can I send/email it ahead of time?
YES. You can e-mail them to the EqMIC using the “Contact EqMiC” button at the top of this page.
I need to contact the EqMIC – how do I do so?
Use the “Contact EqMiC” button at the top of this page. It will open a new e-mail, where you can attach screenshots/pictures/etc of your documentation.
What activities are happening and what equipment should I bring?
There will be the normal games, so swords, ring lances, quintain lances, and axes are welcome. There will not be Mounted Archery, but there will be regular archery, so if you’d like to go visit our friends on the archery field, I strongly encourage you to bring archery equipment.
Is there hay on site or do I need to bring my own?
You will need to provide your own hay & feed.
