Tail-Gait Responsibilities

You may bring your own food and beverages subject to the rules outlines for tailgating below.  Red Hills Horse Trials also offers a food court.

In addition to the general responsibilities that apply to all spectators, tailgaters are expected to adhere to the following requirements:

  • Passenger vehicles only.  No buses, campers, RVs, or other over-sized vehicles are permitted due to low-hanging limbs on the entrance road.
  • No additional motorized vehicles allowed.  This includes: golf carts, ATVs, scooters or motorcycles.
  • The Gate opens at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning.   For YOUR SAFETY and the safety of our athletes, we encourage you to arrive at this time for set-up as the cross country competition begins at 8 a.m.  Early set-up on Friday afternoon can be arranged when you contact us in advance.  Please email RNaff@navgov.com to coordinate.
