The Google Sheet Pen Schematic & Availability spreadsheet is intended to be an aid in viewing the layout and what has already been reserved only. No changes made there will be submitted to ADGA. Available pens when viewing the spreadsheet does not guarantee certain pens will be available. Pen requests are being processed manually and there may be requests ahead of yours that have not been processed and are not reflected yet on the spreadsheet.
Horse Stalls (10′ x 10′) are in the Gilligan Complex. Sheep Pens (7′ x 7′) are in the Brown Arena where the Vendors and show ring is also located. See the individual building descriptions below for more information.
Updates to the National Show Pen Assignment Spreadsheet are being made manually and only during office hours. Stalls and Pens will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Preferences may be indicated on your Online National Show Entry Form or Mail-in National Show Entry Summary.
