STALLS AVAILABLE ONSITE. They have done a lot of upgrades to stalls at Miller's Horse Palace. They are all box stalls, with the exception of those under the cover along the alley going into the indoor arena. They are all the same price this year, so we are reserving them based on when we receive the entry form/payment. The first ones received get preference. There are a limited number of electric hookups. They will be given out based on who gets their entry in first. THIS IS ALL DONE ON THE ENTRY FORM. There are no portable pens allowed.
LATE ENTRIES WILL CLOSE 1 HOUR AFTER THE OPEN HAS STARTED EACH DAY.
CLICK ON THE BLUE BUTTON FOR THE ENTRY FORM & STALL RESERVATIONS!
TIME BLOCKS are also being sold on the entry form this year. You can pick your preferred time and we will accommodate those based on the order received. They are available Saturday and Sunday mornings only. The order of time blocks will be posted on Facebook on Friday.
ADDITIONAL PARKING AVAILABLE ALONG THE RAILROAD TRACKS. You can hang an immediate left after crossing the railroad tracks to enter. There is also access across the street from the indoor arena.
