Barn Night 2012 started with activities on the concourse. Last year's barn night included activities such as a Stablemates painting party hosted by Breyer Animal Creations. The first 100 kids who arrived received a special prize, also courtesy of Breyer. Participants enjoyed the evening’s entertainment with the Gambler's Choice Costume Class to see show jumping at it's most exciting and hilarious, Mutton Busting (for sheep riding at its most hilarious), a t-shirt toss plus an autograph session with top riders!
