Claddagh Farm Open Shows 2011
Because of the economy last year, we are unable to put shows on this year.
We will however have maybe 2 game shows for the season and one overnight with some clinics you can join in on for a fee that the instructors choose to charge.
If you are interested in the overnight (Saturday-Sunday) call 803-564-5631 for more info.
This show will be a prepaid advanced tickets only with a very limited number of riders.
The show will be in September with a date to be announced.
