North Barns

North Barn

These are seven barns located on the north side of the property. The North Barns are sometimes preferred because the stalls next to them are visible and livestock can see one another through the railing. Our newer Stable has stalls which are fully enclosed. 


Overnight boarding is allowed for one-night stays. Permits are issued by the office. Fees are $25 per stall per night which includes a bag of shavings and clean-up, and is payable in advance. Advanced reservations are encouraged to reserve stall space.

    • Seven barns
    • 14 stalls per barn

Users will need to provide all bedding, feed, water, and care for any and all horses housed or otherwise brought onto the premises. Horse stall cleaning performed by the Fairgrounds staff is charged at $5.00 per stall. Animal owners must maintain and care for all animals in a manner consistent with the standards as established by Mesa County Animal Control. The Fairgrounds reserves the right to do periodic inspections and to contact Animal Control if they feel it is necessary.

The Mesa County Fairgrounds does have a helmet policy for all riders age 17 and under. Due to the unpredictability in equine behavior, and a concern for the health and well-being of children, the Mesa County Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution MCM-2001-135 requiring the use of equine industry standard helmets or the signing of a notarized waiver of liability by the parent or guardian. This resolution applies to individual riders and boarders, as well as all organizers, and promoters of equine events.

Horses should only be tied to horse trailers. Violators will be assessed a clean-up and damage fee. Absolutely no tie-ups are allowed in parking areas, to barn doors, water faucets, arenas, or similar devices or structures. Tying horses to any arena is not permitted.


Animals are to be washed only at wash racks.

Washing vehicles at wash racks is prohibited.
