Horsing Around: The Fairfield County Hunt Club Benefit Horse Show
Monday, June 21, 2010
Nothing says summer in Fairfield County quite like the Fairfield County Hunt Club June Benefit Horse Show. Gallop on over this week to see some truly incredible breeds and show jumping at its finest. The show, now in its 85th year, is a local staple and is open to the public with no admission fees. Rated “AA,” this is regarded as one of the premier horse shows in the country.
The show wraps up on Saturday, June 26, with a $25,000 Grand Prix and EQUUS Benefit luncheon where spectators and exhibitors are invited to enjoy a champagne reception, buffet lunch and silent auction. Paddock Boutiques are open every day, showcasing antiques, art, clothing and accessories.
The whole thing benefits The EQUUS Foundation, whose mission is to raise public awareness of the value of the horse in society through education and the award of grants to charities that use the horse for the benefit of the general public, promote the health and welfare of the horses, and elevate the equestrian sport.
