Riding

Open riding is allowed in either the Event Center (Indoor Open Ride) or the Table View Arena (Outdoor Open Ride) during the allotted scheduled times. Open riding may not be available if the arena is reserved for an event, when closed for maintenance, or due to staffing capacity. Jeffco Fairgrounds reserves the right to cancel Indoor or Outdoor Open Ride at any time and for any reason including unsafe weather conditions, maintenance, or scheduling an event.
