Chris - to add to your list of things to check out - looking at the map , it looks like the camping is no further away than the stalls  - if that is the case working out of the RV might be more relaxing for some dogs vs being in stalls 

so can you kind of eyeball the distance of each to the arena?  Thanks

Maureen,

Measuring off the County GIS map they look to be about the same assuming you are going outside to the front door.  From the middle of Campsite C to the front door of the arena or from the middle of Barn A to the front door both are a little over 1000'.  If it's set up so that you can enter the west end of the arena it would be about 650' from the middle of Campsite C and about 425' from the middle of Barn A.  Here's the GIS website if you want to look.  http://www.delco-gis.org/auditor/ 
Also there are pictures on the Equestrian Park website that have quite a bit of information.

I'm going to make an announcement video here soon, and I'll explain this.   The short answer is yes, kinda.

We also just got this response from the mangement:

Good questions, I'm glad to answer them.

The floors in the stables are as follows.
In the premium stables (40 count) inside the Coliseum have concrete aisles and thick rubber mats. The stalls are finished wood and are 12'10'.

Barns A & B are limestone floors. The stalls (141-289 count) are also limestone. The stalls are 10'10' made with steel and tough vinyl.

We will decide here soon whether the premium stalls will even be used.   I have a feeling they might be a bit too close to the ring for our comfort with barking dogs.

When would stalls and creating space be available for set up?   We are trying to plan the trip out there.

Thanks.

My main and only focus for this coming week is Champs stuff.  So premium, camping reservations, stall reservations etc.

So if all goes well we should have it early or late this coming week!

Do the stalls have electrical outlets?  That was a great asset in Illinois!

Thanks!

Also - if we rent a stall now and then don't qualify or are unable to come for some other reason, can we get a full refund?

Thanks!

They appear to be sliding from what I can discern from the photos

Do we need to bring a lock for the stalls, and if so, what kind is recommended?

When in Springfield, I brought a lock with a cable to tie through the bars and lock it.  I ended up using it for a day or 2, then it became a PITA.  However, I know last year, there were some issues with theft so I am thinking about it again.  Or, I may just leave my wallet and such locked in my car and carry minimal cash with me.
