- It is the policy of the Midwest Horse Fair that if a scheduling conflict arises due to participation in multiple events, you or your group member must choose which event to attend. Special accommodations and refunds cannot not be granted. Those who cancel last minute (within two weeks of the fair) and/or due to scheduling conflicts are less likely to be selected as participants in future Midwest Horse Fair events. Participants should apply for no more than two events.
- In the unlikely event that a clinician is unable to conduct their clinics as scheduled because of an unavoidable event (such as illness, accident, flight cancellation, death in family, etc.), Midwest Horse Fair will make every effort to retain another clinician of similar caliber to conduct clinics on the same topics as scheduled and clinic riders will not be given any refund of clinic fees. If for any reason, a suitable replacement cannot be retained and a clinic must be cancelled, participants will receive a refund of clinic fees.
