To cut down on waste, costs and volunteer time, we are asking that all exhibitors bring their own stall bedding!
CABA Classic recommends Pellet Stall Bedding Pellets which are available from your local farm supply store us to provide straw bedding for you, the rate is $10 per bale and one bale will cover 2 stalls.
We have added this to the show registry as a paid option.

Stalling - CABA uses 10x10 stalls. For animal safety, CABA has set the following stalling limits:
4 juveniles/yearlings per stall and 3 adults per stall.
