Details about the Riata Ranch Indoor Arena & Event Center calendar:
**PLEASE NOTE SCHEDULE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE**. If you have questions about a date/time please contact us.
This is not a sign-up sheet. The calendar is maintained by the management and trainers so everyone can see what's going on before coming out to the arena, but anyone can ride any time we are open (unless the time says to call-ahead to schedule) and everyone is expected to work respectfully together to share the arena space.
Times and info shown on the calendar can include:
Trainers' scheduled lessons
Special events like clinics that impact open riding availability
Priority (see the list below the calendar for details)
Open Ride Priority: General open riding time there are no lessons scheduled. During this time we ask that you are respectful and courteous when making changes to the arena ie placing jumps, barrels,poles or other items out so that all riders can enjoy the arena.
Barrel/Gymkhana Priority: Barrels and Poles will be set up and there may be time tracking and lessons going on.

HoofBall Priority: Large "soccer" balls will be in the arena as well as cones. You are welcome to open ride durning practice as long as you and your horse are comfortable with the activity.
