Gary & I would like to thank all of our wonderful exhibitors, whether you were part of the Farm show, Light horse show or the Pony & Draft show, and our outstanding show staff, for helping us put on 3 horse shows this past 12 years for the Freeborn County Fair. We also want to thank those of you who attended any of these shows, we heard you enjoyed them!
On Tuesday, 9/14/21, Stephanie received a phone call from the Fair Manager, and he stated that the fair board has decided to rethink holding horse shows for the upcoming 2022 fair. As such, we have been told that our services are no longer needed as the Horse Dept. Superintendents. We have no idea if they will hold any horse shows at all or if they may hold one.
Anyway, we have always enjoyed working with all of you and will miss seeing you at the fair. THANK YOU again from the bottom of our hearts! This FB page will be taken down within the next couple of weeks. If you'd like to stay in touch with us, please friend us on our personal FB pages (many of you are already our friends!) Gary Richter - GarysPitstop and Stephanie Richter. Just click on our names to get to our pages. God Bless and stay safe!

With great sadness, we announce the death of one our great gatemen, Dan Yotter. Dan loved watching all of you go in and out of the gates. He always showed up to work the gates, whether his hip hurt or the meds were kicking his butt. He made a few of you laugh too. He was a wonderful man and friend who fought a 2 year battle against cancer and lost it today. Please keep his family in your prayers.
