Washington State Horse Park  


Dedicated to All Disciplines & Levels

The needs of horse people involved in a wide variety of equine disciplines across the state are served at the Washington State Horse Park. This world-class venue is fast becoming the "go to place" for breed shows, western competitions, hunter/jumper shows, dressage competitions, three-day events, combined driving and competitive trail riding, to name a few. Local, regional and national competitions will be attracted to the site for its comprehensive offerings and stunning setting.

The Horse Park also serves those interested in less formal equestrian activities such as trail riding and back country packing. Connections are being made to join the Coal Mine Trail east of the site and other nearby regional trails.

People of all ages and skill levels are drawn to the Horse Park, and special consideration is given to youth programs and therapeutic riding. Emphasis also is placed on fostering education and training through clinics, demonstrations, seminars and camps.

Trails - The Horse Park connects directly with more than 10 miles of trails with single-file riding through beautiful lightly forested and grassy countryside. Plus there are many fire roads through the Bullfrog area on firmly packed dirt that's great for easy conversation with friends or trot-canter work abreast. More information will be posted here as spring approaches!
