Almost every stall will be on concrete. Stall mat rental can be found here: https://www.greenbrokefarmservices.com/contract-agreement.
You do not have to know your stall to reserve mats. The NBHA office sends a stall list to Green Broke prior to event.
Stalls will be assigned first-come, first-served.
Online entries will definitely have a better chance at being “first-come” as they open on March 7th. Paper entries will be available on the 7th as well and would be input within a reasonable time upon receipt by mail.
The foolproof way to get your friends and yourself stalled together is to have one of you buy all the stalls on one entry.
There will be a NOTE SECTION online to include your stall preferences and whom you want to be grouped with if purchasing separately from your friends. Suggestion: Use a group name, and make sure all people in your group use the same name, and preferably a total number of how many stalls will be in your group.
Haul Ins allowed for a one-time $50 per horse fee
Parking lot for haul ins will be determined closer to the event.
Haul Ins must pay for all horses in the trailer, no exceptions
