    Default Fields and Fences outside footing, Gurnee, Il

    Fooking to go to some local shows with my green pony. Curious as to if anyone can shed some light on what kind of footing Fields and Fences in Gurnee Illinois has. Would rather choose a different venue if the footing is not all that great. Thanks much!

    F&F is one of the better facilities to show at. All four arenas have all-weather footing. They drag and water the show arenas throughout the show day. You'll be just fine if you go.

    agreed. Fields and fences is a great venue to show at. Runs smoothly and footing is maintained very well.
    Weekends are for horse shows
    and Fridays are for lessons

    I was there for their A show in June 2010 when they got tons of rain...the rings drained well & the footing remained good. I showed my jumper in the ring by the road.
