Essex Horse Trials Country Weekend
Sat, Jun 24, 2017, 8:00 AM – Sun, Jun 25, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
The Essex Horse Trials Country Weekend offers both the excitement of Eventing - arguably the most thrilling equestrian sport - and the fun of a Far Hills country fair all in one incredible weekend.
Often described as a horse triathlon, in which horse & rider pairs compete across three demanding disciplines, the Olympic sport of eventing offers spectators the opportunity to witness the beauty, precision, and bond that is possible between horse and rider.
In addition to the Eventing competition, there will be local, fresh-food vendors, an extraordinary classic car show, a children's activity center, and The Essex Market showcasing the best of the area's country-living merchandise..
The event will benefit the Greater Newark LifeCamp, a local non-profit who empowers inner-city youth through a summer enrichment program outside of an urban environment.
Please join us as we revive this iconic event, and enjoy the rich local resources that make this area so unique!
