Indoor season is officially in full swing, and the Pennsylvania National Horse Show gets underway on Oct. 10 with the start of Junior Weekend. There’s plenty to get excited about with junior and pony hunters, the Neue Schule USEF National Junior Jumper Championships, and of course the ever popular Dover Saddlery USEF Medal Final on Oct 14. (We’ll have a separate What You Need To Know for that class, and of course our live blog throughout the competition.)
Senior week takes place Oct. 15-20. Hunt night takes place Monday, Oct. 15, and you never know who will show up. (Last year eventer Boyd Martin took his turn around the ring.) There’s plenty more action in the open and amateur-owner hunters as well as open, amateur-owner and Under-25 jumpers. The final class will be the $132,000 Grand Prix de Penn National on Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m.
