Barn Challenge HEader.png

When: Woodside Circuit Opener (June 19 – 23) & Bay Area Summer Festival (June 26 – 30)

Where: Horse Park at Woodside

What: Brooke USA will be conducting a fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for working equines around the world. During last year’s devastating fires in California, Brooke USA donated funds for displaced horses.

LEG is hosting a Brooke USA Barn Contest in which each barn's donations will be tracked throughout the Woodside Summer Circuit. In addition, there will be a barn decorating contest during the Bay Area Summer Festival (June 26-30), and then the Brooke USA committee will judge the barns on Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Points from the barn judging will be applied to the funds raised throughout the entirety of the circuit, and we will present the winning barn with special prizes during the Bayfest Grand Prix on Saturday, June 29.

Why: Fun for the whole barn while raising funds for working equines and the people who depend on them in the poorest parts of the world. The best part is that everyone can be involved, trainers, owners, parents and students!

How To Participate: Sign up at the Show Office! All barns should be registered by June 18, 2019. Each barn will be given a kit for donations and pledge cards. We encourage you to visit the Brooke USA booth during the event to see our VR Goggles and what a day in the life of a working equine is truly like.
