Equestrian Events

Unfortunately, this year there will be no Official Equestrian Event at Highland Wars.

If you choose to bring your horses you are on your own and will not be covered by our insurance. There is no water on site. No grey water on the ground.  There will be grey water storage tanks for grey water disposal.

Here are the equestrian use rules for Coconino National Forest:

“… We ask that all campers, including horse campers, use Leave No Trace camping
techniques. For people with horses this includes: using certified weed/seed-free feed,
using highlines, hobbles, pickets, or portable corrals (whichever your animals are used
to) for containing livestock when not being ridden; raking soil and natural forest litter
(kicked up by people and horses) back into place when pulling out of camp; scattering
manure piles and remnant hay so they break down naturally and leave the camp ready for the next group; don’t tie your horse up to trees for more than 5-15 minutes, especially if your animals have a tendency to paw at the ground or chew on the trees; use a portable toilet or the “cat hole method” for the humans in the group; only collect dead and down wood for campfires and wood stoves or bring wood with you; etc. Also, haul plenty of water as many of our stock tanks are dry.”
