Cleanup to Begin on Show Grounds, Access Restricted

After severe weather moved through the Ava, Missouri, area on the evening of May 19, several barns were damaged. The damage assessment is now completed, and the process of removing debris from the MFTHBA World Headquarters is underway.

While it is common practice for individuals to begin the process of bringing items to the grounds in preparation for the upcoming show, the MFTHBA asks that individuals refrain from accessing the show grounds until notified it is safe to do so.

Extra activity on the show grounds will slow the cleanup process. Cleanup crews will be working to make the show grounds safe for people, horses, and vehicles. They will work to complete this process as quickly as possible.

Individuals owning stalls damaged by the severe weather have been notified. Additional information will be shared as it becomes available.
