​​​​​Connolly's Saddlery Saddle Voucher Sidepot

Connolly's Saddlery is adding $250 to a sidepot on Saturday in which a $35 entry fee gets each entrant a $400 voucher to use toward a Connolly's saddle! (Limited to one per person.)

***We will be running in the outdoor arena (full pattern, center gate/alley, good ground), weather permitting, or inside in case of inclement weather.  Either way, we will be ready to go.***

So bad weather hit again, and we are forced to run inside.  The outdoor arena and some of the pens we were planning to use have standing water.  They are working hard to try to get things to drain and set up other pens, but we don't have extra if you haven't made a reservation or sent money with your entry.  

Team Championships

All Open pre-entries (postmarked by May 16) will be drawn onto 4 person teams will run for the awards on Monday, including 4 $1500 Connolly's Trophy Saddle vouchers and much more!  Individuals run for the $1000 added in the Open that day.  Only pre-entries are drawn onto teams.  We do take late entries until 1 hour before the race each day, but they are not guaranteed to be on a team but can still run for the money.

Stalls Available--  We will have indoor, covered, and outdoor stalls available at Miller's Horse Palace.  We have a limited number of indoor and covered stalls.  These run out early, so get yours reserved early.  This year we will only take reservations for the indoor and covered stalls.  There are also some new box stalls outside that we will reserve. We will set up panels to make more stalls.  The outdoor stalls will be first-come, first-served, so you can pick your stall.  Then come check in at the office to get a tag for your stall.  You can still pay for those on your entry forms, so we can get an idea of how many we need.  We do have quite a few outdoor stalls available though.  We are taking reservations for the electrical hook-ups too, but there are only limited number of those as well.  You can make reservations through our Facebook page.  Then you can pay for your stalls on your entry form.  Make sure you have your reservation in before sending money for indoor stalls, covered stalls or electrical hookups.
