Do I have to be a member to use the Horse Park?
No, though membership might save you money. The Park is open to all, and our regular recreational usage fees are for non-members. Regular members and season passholders get 20% off the recreational rates, and season passholders also get free day use of the park.Do I need to pay for Day Use?
Yes. Everyone riding in the park must either have a day use pass, or have purchased cross country schooling for that day. If you have a Season Pass, your day use is free, so long as you display your Season Pass clearly on your rearview mirror; if you don't display it, you will need to pay the standard day use fee. Day use may or may not be included in your entry for a particular event; if this is unclear, you will need to check with the event organizer. The only way you do not need some form of day use pass is if you are not riding at the park; if you are riding entirely off site, or if you are just laying over during a road trip, etc. you do not need day use, but please let us know.Do I have to have a horse to camp at the Park?
Generally, yes, but feel free to ask! Use of Park facilities is primarily reserved for people visiting with horses, but, non-horse riding visitors accompanying people riding at the Park are welcome to stay, and we handle requests from people wishing to camp without a horse on a case-by-case basis. If you are not planning to bring a horse, email email@example.com
with your request to see if RV or dry camping space will be available.What if I need to change or cancel my reservation?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We can help you with any changes to your order. If you need to cancel, we will withhold 5% to cover our administrative costs.I am coming for an event, can I make my own reservations for the regular items in the online store?
Probably not. Some event organizers handle all reservations, some handle part of them, and sometimes the Park handles all reservations. If the organizer is handling them, you must follow the organizer's process. If the Park is handling registration, generally (but not always), we will create a specific event registration item in our online store for that particular event, and it will include your reservation for stalls, etc. We will let you know on our Event Registration
page what the process is for a particular event, if we are involved in the reservations.I am booking in your online store, and it asks for "group name." What name do I use?
Please choose one name that every member of your group will put on their booking. This could be someone's last name, or the name of your stable/club, or a name you made up. We only ask that everyone in your group put the same name here. It makes it hard to correctly group reservations on our end if everyone in your group uses a different group name!What kind of show facilities do you have?
We have facilities to hold nearly every type of horse event! We do not have a race track, or a polo field, but we have four large outdoor arenas, many trails, cross country courses, and our large covered arena will be completed in 2021.Does the Park have horses I can ride?
The Park does not have horses available for rental, but there are private outfitters in the area who do. We recommend you check with 3 Peaks Outfitters
or Flying Horseshoe Ranch
.How is the Park used in the winter?
Historically, the Park has been closed November through March. Cle Elum is usually covered in snow during those months and the Park only had outdoor arenas. With the completion of the covered arena, our event season will be extended.Do you allow horse boarding?
Currently, the Horse Park does not allow boarding. During maximum capacity events, we need all available facility space.I know I am a member, but I forgot my Member Number. Where can I find it?
For 2021, your member number will be the four-digit invoice number from your online purchase of either a regular membership or a season pass. You can find this on either the emailed invoice, or by logging into your online account. If you are a season passholder, your number will also be on the front of your pass. If you purchased your membership using the printed form, you will still be able to find your number in our online store. If you have an account, but just did not use it for your membership purchase, just log in. If you did not have an account at the time you purchased your pass, we created one for you, in order to generate your member number. You can contact us at email@example.com
for assistance with logging in.I purchased a season pass; where is it?
It may take up to three weeks for you to receive your pass. If you have not received it by then, it may be because we are behind in issuing them (for instance, our move this spring into a new office trailer has caused additional delay), but it is also likely that we are missing signed waivers. We will not issue your pass until we have a valid waiver for each person listed. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have questions about your pass. Can I book a specific camping or RV space?
Our online system will not currently allow you to do this, but if you want a specific RV space, please feel free to list that in the comments section of your order, and we will keep it in mind when assigning RV spaces. As for dry camping, we currently have a dry camping area in the woods, rather than specific dry camping spaces set up, so your tent space is first-come, first-served.Can I have a camp fire or barbeque?
Only propane fires/BBQs are allowed in the Park, regardless of the actual fire danger or fire restrictions. You may not burn any cinder-producing materials for any purpose, or at any time; no wood, charcoal, etc. Your propane fire pit or barbeque is okay, provided it is on dirt or gravel and at least eight feet from any vegetation. (Please be aware that the fire danger in Cle Elum may be extreme at certain times of year; we urge you to be exceedingly careful in keeping all potential sources of ignition far away from all vegetation.)I am planning to compete in an event the Park is hosting; why will your online store not allow me to make a reservation?
Usually, we do not allow booking for events through the regular recreational use portion of our online store. If you are trying to book, but are unable to do so, it is likely either because the event is a maximum capacity event and is responsible for all its own facility reservations (so we have blocked all reservations through our store), or because we are taking the facility reservations through the Park, but have another process in place. Please refer to our Event Registration
page for details on the specific event. If you still have questions, please feel free to email us at email@example.com
