Known as one of the most iconic venues in North American eventing, Plantation Field can be likened to Keeneland or Saratoga for equestrians. Each year the facility hosts the Plantation Field International Horse Trials, one of the premier eventing competitions in North America that routinely draws Olympic and World Equestrian Games-caliber competitors.
Last year Plantation Field launched the Real Rider Cup, a celebrity charity equestrian competition aimed at bridging the gap between the on-track and off-track worlds. Held on the Sunday of the Plantation Fields International, the event consisted of four teams of five riders, with each team representing a different sector of the racing community. Each rider was mounted on an off-track Thoroughbred and together they navigated a stadium jumping course, trying to keep the rails up, beat the clock…and stay on their horse!
