Fall will be here before we know it and with it comes one of the most highly anticipated equestrian events of the year: the Rolex Central Park Horse Show. This world-renowned event will return to New York September 21-25 and feature some of the best equestrian competitors in the world.
The event kicks off with majestic Arabian horses for the U.S. Open Arabian Horse Show. The following four days of stunning events include show jumping, dressage, and hunter competitions, and a fun and informative family day. Some of the world’s top show jumpers will compete, with competitions also for junior and amateur jumpers. Tickets are on sale now!
