Plantation Field International Horse Trials will celebrate its 10th anniversary by kicking off a multi-year partnership with the Retired Racehorse Project. This year's event, held Sept. 14-17, 2017 in beautiful Unionville, will celebrate excellence in the sport of eventing and Thoroughbred racing culture.
Top names in Thoroughbred racing like Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Graham Motion will team up with top eventers like Rio Olympic individual bronze medalist Phillip Dutton to showcase second careers for former racehorses.
Steuart Pittman, president of the Retired Racehorse Project, said he is thrilled to be involved in this new multi-year partnership with Plantation Field, which has steadily grown to be one of the most prestigious horse trials on the fall eventing calendar.
With the horse trials held annually three weeks prior to the Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium, which this year will take place Oct. 5-8, 2017 at the Kentucky Horse Park, partnering with Plantation Field provides an ideal platform for the Retired Racehorse Project to not only promote second careers for off-track horses but also reach a new group of fans for eventing.
