Service Dog Policy

El Capitan Stadium Association (ECSA) and Lakeside Rodeo Policy on Service Dogs

ECSA/Lakeside Rodeo complies with California State provisions, which allow service dogs in all public areas. (Miniature horses trained to do work or perform tasks for persons with disabilities are also acceptable.)

A service dog is a dog trained to do specific tasks for a person that he or she cannot do because of a disability. Service dogs can pick things up, guide a person who is blind, or help someone who falls or loses balance easily. For example, a service dog can help a blind person walk down the street or get dangerous things out of the way when someone is having a seizure.
Protecting someone, giving emotional support, or being a companion do not qualify a dog to be a service animal. To be a service dog, a dog must go through training. Usually the dog is trained to:
• Do things that are different from natural dog behavior.
• Do things that the handler (dog owner) cannot do because of a disability.
• Learn to work with the new handler in ways that help manage the owner's disability Because the handler depends on the service dog's help, these animals will be given access to public places when accompanying individuals with disabilities making their services necessary. This is the case even if it is somewhere pet dogs usually cannot go, such as a grocery facility or eating establishments.

But there are a few exceptions. For example, service dogs can be asked to leave if they are not behaving well. If someone with a service dog attends a show and baby strollers are restricted, dog strollers/carts are equally restricted. The dog is to be held on the lap of the handler. If the dog barks or is otherwise disruptive and the behavior can be compared to a human and a human would be asked to leave an event, the handler may be told to remove the dog. At the Lakeside Rodeo facility, “Dogs in Training” or “Puppies in Training” with appropriate identification will be allowed in all public areas with appropriate supervision providing they do not create a disturbance. One “Dog in Training” or “Puppy in Training” per trainer will be allowed on property. The ECSA/Lakeside Rodeo reserves the right to exclude any “trainees” creating a disturbance.

Alcohol Policy

The Lakeside Rodeo facility strictly follows the rules and guidelines of the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC).

Penalty for any individual that furnishes alcohol to a minor:
A minimum $1,000 fine and 24 hours of community service. If a person buys alcohol and furnishes it to a minor who consumes it and causes great bodily injury or death to himself or others, the furnisher faces a minimum 6-12 months in county jail and a $1,000 fine. (Sections 25658(a), 25658(c) and 25658(e)(2)(3))

Lakeside Rodeo Facility Alcohol Consumption Rules:
  • A patron must have a valid ID showing date of birth to obtain an event wristband to purchase alcohol.
