The Wild West Committee would also like to invite you and your friends to join us around town both Friday and Saturday with your horses. Dexter is a "horse friendly town" especially during Wild West. Citizens will enjoy seeing people riding around in carts and on horse back on Main Street and about town! Did you know that there is a Maine Law that “Horses Have the Right of Way” on the roads? You can find it at State of Maine Statutes & Laws; Title 29-A - §2055. Animals on a public way.
The Annual Ride In to the Dexter Health Care (nursing home) is on Friday at 10 am and we would love to see LOTS of riders join us. We meet on Grove Street by the Dexter Police State at 9:30 am. The residents wait all year now for this day! It reminds them of their past. After that trip, we head back downtown to Main Street, where you are invited to join the Kiddy & Horse Parade at 1 pm.
Trailer parking can be found down by the Watering Hole, or wherever you can find a nice spot. Water for the horses is provided on Main Street and at some businesses. We hope to see you soon with smiling faces, festive moods and a safe day during our 7th Annual Wild West Weekend Trophy Equitation Show.
