Late Registration/Adding Events 

Contestant This information will be decided after our annual meeting in late September.

Horse and Stall Fees

The following information is preliminary and will be confirmed after our annual meeting in late September.
Each contestant pre-registred for horse events will receive one (1) stall at no charge.  Each additional horse stall will be $25.00.
North Star will make every effort to provide "late stalls" to contestants that notify North Star of their need for additional stalls in advance.  This notification can be made by email to  Because our horse stalls are portable and brought in from an offsite vendor, contestants that do not reserve an adequate number of horse stalls and/or do not notify North Star of the need for a "late stall" will not be gauranteed a stall on arrival.  If a "late stall" is able to be provided, a late fee of the actual cost of the stall will be assessed at the time of check in not to exceed $50 per stall.  
***  Tack Stalls will NOT be available.  ***
Horse stall check in will begin on Thursday, July 22nd at 5pm.  Please make sure to complete the paperwork that will be attached to each stall.   

Horse and Stall Information

The following information is preliminary and will be confirmed after our annual meeting in late September.
Dead Broke Arena is one of the finest outdoor arenas around with excellent footing for horse contestants.  It is adjacent to Woodloch Stables, but unfortunately all the indoor stalls are already used by the horse owners who lodge their horses at Woodloch Stables.  We have a limited number of open air outdoor stalls available located right behind the announcer's stand for easy access for our contestants.  We understand it is our responsibility to provide stalls per IGRA rules.  Because we cannot predict how many new horse contestants we may have, we encourage you to bring a few extra livestock panels with you to sufficiently keep your horse(s) secure.  We would be most grateful for your help and will offer a stipend as a token of our appreciation.  If you are willing to do this, please contact so we can keep an accurate stall count. 
We do not have shavings onsite, but Hugo Feed Mill and Hardware is a feed store that you pass in Hugo on your way out to the arena.
If you need hay, please let us know at, and we will set you up with hay through Woodloch Stables.  
Added Prize Money
NSGRA currently has $750.00 reserved for horse contestants and is seeking additional funds for added prize money. We will update this as we get further along in the planning process.
