What Do I Need To Fill Out?
You will need to submit these two completed forms, and review the common conditions for equestrian events
1) Fillable Special Use Permit Application
2) Fill out a threatened and endangered species addendum
Please provide a detailed description of your event, including any advertising. A map must be included indicating which trails or locations you will be using, and any stations you may be setting up. A website, for your organization or event, if you have one, is great too. The more detail you provide the better. All park regulations apply to special events, unless a specific written exemption is approved and included in the permit, so please be sure to review the section on “common conditions” before submitting your request. When completing the forms, be sure to sign both of them. Also, if a question does not apply to your event, please indicate "none," or "does not apply," or something similar, rather than leaving a blank. The more detail you provide the better... All park regulations apply to special events, unless a specific written exemption is approved and included in the permit, so please be sure to review the section on “common conditions” before submitting your request. It is also important if you are including any "commercial" services (ie, commercial photographer) that you let us know that in your application. These must be addressed during the review and in your permit and exceptions to common conditions are not guaranteed.
You will be required to provide a copy of a Certificate of Insurance for your event. You must have $1 million liability with a $3 million aggregate, issued by a US based company with an A- or better BEST rating. The United States and the State of California must appear as additional insureds. Please include a list of any equipment your will be bringing and the maximum number of entries.
Please provide pictures and descriptions of signs if you plan to post them; include materials and measurements. Signs may not be attached to any made-made or natural feature in the park. Signs may only be posted the day of the event and must be removed in a timely manner.
Please be sure to review the conditions on the website before completing your application; there are important conditions regarding feed, brushing and flagging.
