Riding club holds horse show Sunday

WESTFIELD – The Westfield Riding Club hosts its second show of the season on Sunday beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the club grounds located at 29 Fowler Road in Westfield. More than 55 riders are pre-registered for Sunday’s event and spectators are welcome.
The club is a non-profit organization founded on the eve of World War II in 1939 by a group of horse enthusiasts whose intent was “fostering interest in the use, care, breeding and protection of horses.”
“Horseback riding is one activity that every member of a family can participate in. It is not unusual for generations of family members to be showing together and that is what makes our horse shows unique and fun,” said club president Sarah Bonini.”
The show will features classes and prizes for horses and riders of all ages and disciplines including the the Founder’s Day Pleasure Classic, a Pro-Am Challenge, Jackpot Showmanship & Jackpot Versatility Classic, “Bareback Eq” Challenge and the Wildfire Farm Equine Rescue Challenge. Three perpetual trophies will be awarded.
The club organizes educational activities, programs, shows, trail rides, and other events to enhance the understanding of correct horse management and riding, as well as appreciation of the horse with particular emphasis on youth participation at all levels.
“We are very fortunate to have such an active club, one that owns its own property and can bring horse owners and enthusiasts together all year long for shows, trail rides and other events,” said Bonini.
A mobile tack store will offer onsite support. Onsite catering services will be available.
