Hunt Night

Warrenton Horse Show

Hunt Night horse shows are for the foxhunter, both human and equine. The horses showing in the classes especially for these Hunt Night shows are actual field hunters. In fact, the horses must qualify in order to attend the show and have hunted, in the field, a certain number of times. The classes are fun, always hunt formal. There are Corinthian Classes, where the horses must be not only braided from foretop to tail, but the proper tack must be adorned. Riders must also be formally adorned and the ladies are beautiful in their top hats and shadbelly’s, the men handsome in their pinque coats.

 

Sadly Mother Nature put an early end to Hunt Night this year with a “monsoon” that literally flooded the show grounds and put on a pyrotechnic show that lasted several hours. But despite the limited number of events, Keswick prevailed once again with the Championship!
