The Country Classic – July 9 – 13, 2014

The Country Classic had a new twist this year with the addition of the Saddle Seat classes held in one of the former hunter rings with hope of introducing the charm and tradition of old-world horse shows like Devon. It was a nice break for spectators being able to see a world so different than our own. It all revolves around the horses we love so much!
