From 9am – 5pm on Sunday March 29, join Fox Chase Farm for their Hunter Horse Show. Hunters must possess jumping ability, style, pace, quality and manners as they compete in an arena over simulated stonewalls, hedges, and coups that are similar to ones found out in the fox hunting field. Riders wear traditional hunting garb dating back centuries; impeccable horses are turned out complete with neatly braided manes and tails resplendent of an era gone by.
