The Clark County Fair Mounted Patrol was formed in 1975. Originally known as “The Fence Riders”, the group was formed to patrol the fence lines of the Clark County Fair. At the time the group was formed, their main duty was to discourage fairgoers from jumping the fence to gain free admission to the fair. Present day CCFMP members still keep a keen eye on the fences surrounding the fair, however their duties have expanded. The CCFMP not only aids in parking lot security as the eyes and ears for the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, but also serves as ambassadors for the fairgoers. Often the members of the CCFMP assist fairgoers in finding their cars, helping with traffic flow and occasionally searching for lost keys or phones accidentally dropped by a fairgoer in the parking lot. Through the years, the CCFMP has become an iconic part of the fair experience. A member of the CCFMP is easy to spot. They are dressed in red shirts, adorned with a white hat and sit astride a horse in the parking lot. CCFMP members and their horses often pose for fairgoers to take selfies. It is safe to say the CCFMP members and their horses enhance the fair experience for all.
