Equestrian activities:  A Mongolian themed challenge involving sheep, swords, sheep, a banner, sheep, and other sorts of Mongolian things!  Did I say sheep?  There will also be a competition involving something that no Mongolian horse is seen without, the Mongolian Neck Tassel!  What is this?  A strap made of leather, or other material, that is worn loosely around the horse’s throatlatch with a big tassel hanging at the bottom of it!  Prizes?!?  Why furs of course!  What is a Mongol without their furs going into winter?  A cold Mongolian!

There are a couple of cabins in the equestrian area with a limited number of beds available.  Please contact Rhiannon at Rhiannonocm@yahoo.com to reserve a bed.  The cabins are extremely primitive with open air screened windows, but they are a roof that you don’t have to pack up when you leave.

Proof of negative Coggins (for all horses) and Health certificates (for out of state horses only) will need to be shown to the MIC of Equestrian activities before off loading the horses.  Please have a photocopy of same to provide to MIC.  Thanks!

Questions?  Rhiannon email at Rhiannonocm@yahoo.com
