How did the event go in 2019? The 4 th annual RRF, held August 24-25, was bigger than ever. 2,365 visitors were counted entering the Fairground gates over the 2 days. In addition, roughly 25-30 of a total volunteer force numbering about 45-50 were on the grounds at any one time. Add exhibitors, clinicians, judges, ride operators and support staff, food service staff, competitors and followers, and clinic participants, total numbers easily swelled to over 2,500 for the weekend. A revised format and attraction layout had visitors spread more evenly around the venue. Highlights for kids included the Jumpy Castle, Pony Rides and the Petting Zoo. All folks enjoyed the wagon rides and equine and canine demonstrations.
