About The Venue

Dripping Springs Ranch Park is a 110 acre park nestled amidst rolling landscape, seasonal creeks and ponds with wide open spaces. The park is home to the city's premiere Event Center with over 166,000 square feet under cover. The park has a covered arena, outdoor arena, round pen, trail system, stalls, hook ups, wash rack, and bathrooms. The park is conveniently located 1.5 miles from downtown Dripping Springs near restaurants, lodging, and entertainment.

There is paved parking and field parking available. Paved parking has RV Hook-ups and does not allow tying to the trailer or pen set up, you will need to stall your horse. Field parking may have a few hook-ups and allows you to set up a pen. Dogs are permitted and must be kept on a leash at all times.

Event Details

There will be a 2-3 mile trail challenge late Friday afternoon and a 5 mile trail challenge Saturday morning. Come for one or both events!

These Trail Challenges will be just a part of the great fun that will be going on at the Dripping Springs Ranch Park on this day! RED ARENA, a Therapeutic Riding Center located in Dripping Springs, will be holding their annual Round Up, a fundraiser consisting of tons of festivities such as a 5k & 10k run, a free wine tasting, great TX BBQ, a HUGE silent auction from local Dripping Springs merchants and beyond (we have lots of great breweries, distilleries, wineries, boutiques & shops), lots of games for the entire family, and equine events for the kiddos from Red Arena! All proceeds from this event will go to Red Arena. For more information on Red Arena, please visit their website RedArena.org.

While the Red Arena Round Up festivities will use the covered arena, the course for the Friday & Saturday Trail Competitions will be on the park's Hill Country trail system.

The Terrain

The terrain is typical Hill Country, some soft dirt areas, some rock. Shoes/boots recommended if your equine is not used to the Hill Country.

Meals

While there will be no food available for purchase Friday evening, there will be free wine tasting and hors-d'oeuvres inside the covered arena. For lunch on Saturday, there will be plenty of TX BBQ, snow cones, and snacks for sale in the Arena's kitchen.
