Genesee County Parks is home to two of the finest equestrian facilities in Southeast Michigan, Everett A. Cummings Event Center and Elba Equestrian Complex. Bring your horse and ride through 4,540 acres of natural beauty and around a small inland lake. You can even camp overnight with your horses at this location.

Both Elba Equestrian Complex and Everett A. Cummings Event Center regularly host local and statewide equestrian events, so advance reservations are necessary. To reserve your Elba campsite, or to host an event at either Elba or the Cummings Event Center, please contact the Parks reservation office at 810.736.7100 ext. 6 or 800.648.PARK.
