There is a walk from the parking area. We will be roughing it. Wear comfortable clothes and a hat might be a good idea. CLOSED-TOE shoes are required as we will be working with the horses. Bring a lawn chair if you want to sit. Sanitary facilities are of an "outhouse" variety. The usual continental breakfast is not available but bottled water will be provided.
