Entering its 84th year, the popular Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show will be held from June 11, 2013 through June 16, 2013 at the Ox Ridge Hunt Club (OHRC). The show is a United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Hunter “A” rated major riding competition featuring three-star rated jumpers ridden by Olympic-level and international equestrians. The show is known for its one- to six-foot show jumping exhibitions. Additionally, this year’s program marks the highly-anticipated countdown to the centennial anniversary celebration of the OHRC in 2014.
“We are delighted with the support we’ve thus far received for this year’s Charity Show,” said Alan Griffin, General Manager of ORHC. “The money raised will ensure continued funding for Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, an organization founded at Ox Ridge in 1975.”
The OHRC, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1914 as a polo and hunt riding club, and remains one of the area’s premiere indoor and outdoor hunter and jumper riding facilities. The club has extensive indoor and outdoor facilities that are some of the finest in Fairfield County, 37 acres in Fairfield County formerly owned by opera singer John McCormick.
