Every Friday until March 12th will have the similar format with different charities assigned to each Friday. During the Winter, spectators are also welcome Wednesday through Sunday from 9am until the end of each show day. Show Day length depends on how many riders & horses each day. During regular show days, please come to the show office to pay your admission and receive the schedule of events. Please park in the field above Covered Arena by entering through Gate B. We are excited for you to come visit us!
CLOTHING: We recommend comfortable walking shoes and weather-related attire. All of our roads and pathways are dirt or grass due to the safety of the horses. Prepare for weather of the season with sunblock, hats, etc.
VENDORS: Located on the show grounds, most of our vendors not only sell equestrian related products, but also many other items. We have had vendors who sell jewelry, artwork, photography, clothing (equestrian and non-equestrian), food, and much more.
CONCESSIONS: During all Fox Lea Events, the Fox Lea Café is open during show hours for food and beverages. We serve a wide variety of food. During the Friday Events, Made In Italy sells stone-fired pizzas. Sips N Spurs sells sodas, water, beer, & wine. We have a light complimentary cheese and cracker offering on the pavilion.
SEATING: The facility offers grandstand bleacher seating, picnic tables situated on the outside of the show rings, and a covered pavilion (table and chair seating available). We encourage spectators to bring lawn chairs if possible because seating for the premier classes tends to fill up quickly. VIP Tables are also available.
Follow signs for parking from North Auburn Rd.. Spectators will enter from Gate B and be greeted by the charity of the evening to escort them by golf carts to the Arenas & Pavilion Area.
