It’s one of Westport’s oldest, longest-running events.
It’s one of the most exciting to see.
It’s one you’ve probably never heard of.
Fairfield County Hunt Club’s 96th annual June Benefit Horse Show opened yesterday. It runs through Saturday.
Over 3,000 international, national and local riders compete in world-class events, featuring hunter, jumper & equitation disciplines. Highlights include a $50,000 Grand Prix, and a $10,000 Welcome Stake.
The June Benefit Horse Show is open to the public, and free. Social activities include a Grand Prix Luncheon, Family Fun Day and shopping at the Paddock Boutique. For more information, click here.
The Fairfield County Hunt Club show benefits EQUUS Foundation — the national charity that protects America’s horses, and fosters the horse-human bond.
FUN FACT: This is one of the few remaining historic horse shows that still competes on grass.
