Equine Check in Process

All horses entering the MFTHBA showgrounds must have a negative Coggins test within the past 12 months and a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, regardless of state of origin.

Horses must enter through the equine entry gate to have paperwork checked.  There is a $10 per horse inspection fee.

The equine entry gate will be staffed starting Monday June 5.

Equine Entry Gate Hours:


Monday, June 5 and Tuesday, June 6: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Wednesday June 7 – Saturday June 10:  8 a.m. to 7 p.m.


For horses arriving earlier than Monday or outside equine entry gate hours, a member of the MFTHBA Board of Directors will be available Monday through Wednesday to check in horses at their stalls.  This will occur between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. each day.  To have horses checked during this time, owners must sign up in the MFTHBA office.

After Wednesday, any horse entering outside the equine entry gate hours, must bring their horses to the gate to be checked promptly after the gate reopens.
