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.
To inquire about renting this or any other facility available at the Fairgrounds, please refer to the Event Holder's Guide. You can also fill out and submit the Facility Rental Inquiry Form. You can choose to either submit by e-mail, or print it out and mail it to our office.
