Arabians Take Over Manhattan At The Rolex Central Park Horse Show

Sep 20, 2017 - 10:10 PM

New York City—Sept. 20

Some of the country’s best Arabians took to the Wollman Rink in Central Park today for the third annual Arabian U.S. Open on the first day of the Rolex Central Park Horse Show. Horses and riders traveled from as far away as California, including some coming from hurricane-ravaged areas in Texas and Florida.

Sport horses kick off tomorrow at 6:30, with a 1.20-meter junior/amateur class, the $40,000 CSX FEI Speed Class and the $50,000 Spy Coast Farm Puissance.
