Exclusive shopping, dining and day spa experiences are located in the center of the horse show complex.

Vendor Village features permanent stores where exhibitors and spectators can take advantage of shopping for equestrian clothing, tack, equipment and accessories, watch fine artists at work and see their gallery spaces, or perhaps browse through a clothing boutique with rich cashmere sweaters and fine silk scarves and jewelry, or visit The Cutting Room Aveda Day Spa..
