Additional stands set up for Open House
At this year's Open House and Stallion Show, we will set up additional stands in order to make room for everyone. Unfortunately, we did not have enough stands for all visitors last year. With the new stands, we hope to be able to give everyone a good spot and at the same time make room for even more visitors.
