Map of Facilites

Marked with a PURPLE arrow is the entry gate, enter off Brekke Road and let the guard shack know you are there for the SABRA Barrel Race.

The PURPLE X is the RV office, if you need RV hookups, go there upon arrival to set that up.

Marked in YELLOW is the dry camping lot. Please DO NOT PARK in this lot unless you will be paying for dry camping!

The TURQUOISE lot is the general parking lot for anyone that will not be camping or setup in an RV Spot. If this lot fills up, there is additional parking on the far west side of the fairgrounds by Manny's arena.

The BLUE Square is the cantina, that will be open and serving food and drinks during the event. There are a FEW parking spots around the Cantina that we'd like to save for handicapped and our Equine vendors. If you are one of our Equine vendors (therapy, bodywork, massage, etc. You can pull into those spots for closer access to unload whatever you may need to unload.

The LIME GREEN is the indoor and covered arenas where the race will be happening and where your stalls will be located. The covered arena is where you can warm up!! A map of stall assignments will be posted with the draw.

And most importantly, the RED areas are off limits! Don't warm your horses up in the arenas marked with a red x and DO NOT park in the area marked in RED!
