The Pennsylvania National Horse Show gets underway on Oct. 10 with the start of Junior Weekend. There’s plenty to get excited about with juniors, pony hunters, the Neue Schule USEF National Junior Jumper Championships and, of course, the popular Dover Saddlery/U.S. Hunter Seat Medal Final on Oct 13. (We’ll have a separate What You Need To Know for that class and our live blog going throughout the competition.)
Senior Week runs Oct. 14-19. Hunt night takes place Monday, Oct. 14, and you never know who will show up—a few upper-level eventers have been known to make an appearance. There’s plenty more action in the open and amateur-owner hunters, as well as in the open and amateur-owner jumpers. The East Coast NAL Finals for hunters and jumpers also take place throughout the week. The final class will be the $134,000 Grand Prix de Penn National on Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m.
