The Plantation Field International Horse Trials are fast approaching! It's a thrilling time for our area and horse enthusiasts from all across the region to have the top event horses and riders in the country come to Unionville to compete.
The event is shaping up to be an exciting weekend of eventing, as well as fun and entertainment -- plenty of shopping Vendor Village, parties and top notch hospitality each day, and the area's best tailgating on the country course.
Brand new for this year, Plantation Field has partnered with the Retired Racehorse Project as our beneficiary to showcase the incredible American Thoroughbred. These horses can have successful second careers in other disciplines after they leave the track, and our aim is to highlight their talent and heart throughout the weekend.
The Retired Racehorse Project will give a demonstration on Saturday featuring horses that will compete in the Thoroughbred Makeover at the Kentucky Horse Park in October. We will also have celebrity Thoroughbreds like Icabad Crane making an appearance at the event.
The Sunday lunch break will feature the highlight of the entire weekend as American legends from the racing world come together to compete in the Real Rider Cup. Jockeys, trainers, owners and veterinarians will test their mettle over a show jumping course in the main arena in a must-see event.
We hope you will join us in supporting this wonderful community event, both financially and with your presence.
