On Saturday and Sunday, after the Christmas Parade, we will host the first ever dog costume class! Bring your best dressed dog(s) for a change to win prizes for humans and dogs alike! All dogs must be leashed.
Description of MDHT Cross Derby courses: All rings will have cross country obstacles you would find on a typical competition course. The objective is to establish a rhythm over solid jumps in reliable consistent footing. Optimum times will be posted.
