Thanks to everyone who came out today to chase some cans! It was a beautiful day despite the wind, and fairly short lived block wide power outage. 😬😬 Thank you, Hubby Scott Dittmer, for all your hard work getting this show ready this past week, and prepping the ground and getting the generator going when the power went out. Yikes what a day! Thank you all for the patience!
Thanks to all our amazing help from our barrel setters, gate crew, concession crew, office crew! You all were amazing and we could not have done it without all of you! 😘

No Barrel Race Tonight at Dittmer Stables 😞Thank you all for your support!! Hope to see you all back at more races here in 2021


Thank you all for your input about the race for tonight❤️
Due to popular demand, tonight’s barrel race has been canceled. We will keep an eye on the slim chance of having our last scheduled one next Tuesday..... but it’s not looking too promising. Keep a watch on fb for updates on that. I want to thank you all for coming to the 3 that we were able to have and a huge thanks to Gary Thomas and Lisa Thomas for providing their yummy food truck!
We look forward to having more races in 2021 and possibly bringing back our Dittmer Stables Award Series like we used to do in years past. Lots of fun memories were made at those. I could not have had these shows this fall without my amazing Barn Family and IBB Crew, hubby, and kiddos! Thank you ALL who have helped at our shows! I love you guys!❤️🤗🐴
Our goal is to get money raised for new lighting and fencing for our arena, to be able to continue having events here🙌❤️
Everyone stay warm and cozy tonight! 🔥

Alright die hard barrel racers, I need input please! We have a race Scheduled for tonight. However I know Mother Nature is not being real co-operative. Temps will be cold but as of right now the ground will be great! Wet on top, but dry underneath... who wants to brave the elements and join us for our last show of the season ? Next week will likely be canceled with the forecasted rain Coming later in the week......
We will not be able to have the yummy food provided this week by Gary Thomas and Lisa Thomas however, due to the uncertainty of rain this afternoon.. They will be back next season ❤️
Pack your hot coco😊
This will be a short and sweet show with warm ups, P*e wee, Open and Youth. We will Not have Poles tonight. We will get you guys out of here at a decent time.

Please comment below because I need to know if there is enough interest to have this final race.
Keep in mind if it starts raining this afternoon I will make the call by 4 if it has to be Canceled
Check fb or call/or text me before you come

Please comment if you want to come tonight ❤️🐴
