THE BISTRO AT GRAND OAKS WILL RE OPEN SEPTEMBER 3RD, YAY!  Now Jeanne will have somewhere to eat instead of the bar down the street, thank goodness. Altho their barbeque is to die for. . .

Jeanne is working on the October shows for Grand Oaks, The classes and divisions offered will be the same but the Halloween show , of course, will be over the top…and is still in the planning stage. Please do not send in entries for the Halloween show until the prize list is published, it will create massive re-work for Ms Gayle and  not help reserve stabling, lol.  We promise you’ll love it!!!

All Summertime shows are “Polo Shirt Only” shows…until October 15.

Come show over full, “A” quality courses…..our HSITP riders do very well at WEC and the rated shows due to the mileage and exposure they get to quality fences at HSITP….

AT GRAND OAKS STALLS ARE NOW RESERVED ONLY WITH ACTUAL COMPLETE ENTRIES INCLUDING SIGNED WAIVERS and CLASS NUMBERS. …so be sure and get them in if you know you’re coming so you don’t get closed out.  Stalls will be assigned by the Monday morning before the show given the complete entries we’ve received .  We may sell out of stabling prior to Sunday before the show and status will be noted on our Facebook page and this website.  A signed, scanned and electronically sent entry form with credit card information is the best way to enter the show.  (You can still substitute a check or cash at the show if you want to  do so)  The show office, will only serve one client at a time per show secretary and prizes/ribbons will also be outside on the porch area. Prizes and ribbons must be picked up at the show where they’ve been earned, not after.  The more you have completed and submitted electronically prior to the show the better!!   Please look at the class schedule and indicate the class numbers you plan on entering.  If you have a stall, your entries must total a minimum of $55 per day or the difference will be added in the show office.  Entries without class numbers, rider or parental signatures and credit card info are not a valid nor complete entry and stalls will not be issued.
