Final Week of School and the Rock Creek Riding Club Horse Show

I am sitting at my desk on Monday, Memorial Day, listening to the jackhammer set the tents for the Rock Creek Riding Club Horse Show. This sound is always a reminder the end of the school year is near. While the show starts on June 2, at 7 p.m., the preparations begin this week. Due to growth in the number of participants in the horse show, a tent will extend over the driveway near the white fence on the Riding Club property. We strive to be good neighbors, so what does this mean for Rock Creek families?

Carpool

  • Single file carpool line along the Riding Club driveway and in front of the white house.
    • We must leave a lane of their driveway open for a fire lane and to allow exit for club personnel/members.
    • Riding Club personnel will be helping direct carpool line.
  • Single line carpool will drive under the tent, which has an 8 foot clearance.
  • Double carpool lines will begin after passing through the tent.

  • Parking is not available under the trees of the Riding Club property.
