The grounds consist of a parcel with two fields referred to as Bruemmer’s Ranch and Oak Lake. The ranch was originally used as hay fields and as pasture. The lake was used to mine gravel.

Horse Pasture (HQ)
The “Horse Pasture” is surrounded with large Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, Big Leaf Maple and Alder trees. Oak Creek, which is seasonal, overflows and cuts its way through the far end of the field. This field is one that PSRC members use for training all year long. It will be our Invitational Headquarters. There will also be an area to use for training and for airing.
The “Upper Field” has a side hill which turns into river bottom. The Dewatto River is at the far side of the valley. There are two drainages which intersect at right angles within the valley floor. The vegetation is various and differing. When groomed with a mower the terrain can be quite challenging. During winter the river often overflows its bank and the field becomes under water.
Oak Lakes had been used to mine gravel. There’s still a gravel site to the back of the property. During the winter it is one body of water with two islands within it. As the level of the lake recedes it provides a continuously changing place to train. From one body of water it has numerous smaller differently shaped portions. We are somewhat dependent on Mother Nature for a desirable water level.
