Don't forget there is a Leash Law at all Placer County Parks.  Please, if you must bring your dog to the Arena, make sure it is leashed.  Be careful if you tie your dog near the bleachers or out buildings as horses may not see your dog and spoke if it the dog makes a sudden movement.  There are many young horses and experienced riders at our arena.  Be considerate.

 Have a safe ride at the arena and don't forget to close the gates after you enter and make sure they are LOCKED when you leave. Don't always rely on the people after you to lock the gate.
