Check in Day at Finals

Please remember when you pull into the parking lot at finals there is 460 horses needing stalls and all those horses arrive in a trailer!! Do not pull in front of the barns and spend an hour unloading.  We will have people in the parking lot directing traffic to assist you when you pull in.

  • We ask that competitors be considerate of space when they park, if you are asked to tighten up space by one of our parking directors you must comply.
  • Pick all your shavings up that you ordered from the semi trailer parked over in front of the Canada Room barn, the shavings will only be available Thursday.
  • Check-in with the show office as soon as possible. Deadline is 9pm to complete this!
  • Arena time slots are available Thursday only we recommend you purchase them ASAP on arrival as well.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation throughout the weekend! Remember your Board of Directors are all volunteers be respectful of them and the Keystone Centre Staff and facility.
