  • Site Information

    The site for Mounted War Games VII is officially dry and anyone found violating this policy will be asked to leave. Local Police patrol the site often.

    Well-attended above-ground fires are permitted.

    Equine Health Requirements
    The Indiana State Board of Animal Health requires all equines being transported into Indiana to have a Coggins dated within 12 months of the event and a traveling health certificate dated within 30 days of the event. For full information, please go to the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. Coggins are required for all equus on site regardless of permanent or temporary residency of equus

    Friendly, leash in-hand or securely tethered and supervised dogs with identification tags are welcome on site and inside buildings. However, by request, dogs unfamiliar with horses are discouraged because one sniff, bark, or lunge can result in a spooked horse. Please keep dogs far away from cart horses. Riders and carts will be allowed to patrol the premises on roadways and they have the right of way. Dogs may be temporarily contained in open horse stalls- one hour max, post your contact information, water must be provided, clean up your messes, excessive barkers will asked to leave the barn.

    If you are bringing children, please be extra diligent with your supervision as there will be many horses and other hazards onsite.

    If you are bringing children of whom you are not the legal guardian, then there are two forms you will need to bring for each child. Both need to be signed by the child's parent or legal guardian. ONE MUST BE NOTARIZED per Indiana law. This one needs the notarization, and will be kept with the child at all times. This one is the usual Minor Waiver. PLEASE have both forms filled out and signed/notarized where appropriate for each child you will be bringing that you are not the parent or legal guardian of. This requirement is out of our control and the children affected will not be allowed to attend if they are not completed properly before arrival. Thank you.
