The Jones County Equestrian Center

Here at the Great Jones County Fair we're ALWAYS looking for the next thing we can build and improve upon at our fair and last year we unveiled the brand new JONES COUNTY EQUESTRIAN CENTER! Through an incredible amount of support from local Jones County individuals and businesses we were able to build an amazing new equestrian center. A fully covered, full-size arena will serve our area and help to grow horsemanship in Jones County for many many years to come.
