Go to attend the show or just watch the $25,000 Grand Prix and the USHJA Hunter Derby. These are casual social events, but be sure to look your best. We recommend a sundress or cute slacks with sandals for ladies
Ribbons, prizes, and events are plenty at the Charleston Summer Classic. The horses really feel like they are on vacation at the show. The trail rides on the property are a favorite activity amongst riders, along with galloping on the beach horseback through the Seabrook equestrian beach riding program.
Riders, maybe you and your trainer are seeking a new adventure…. Head south to the Charleston Summer Classic! We think you’ll enjoy what the facility has to offer: four show rings, a grand prix field, and 40 acres of fields. So much space makes hacking and lunging ideal. And did we mention the 20 miles of trails? If you’ve been to the show facility in past years, you’ll be impressed with the improvements that have been made.
The Charleston Summer Classic, at Mullet Hall Equestrian Center in John’s Island, SC, runs from July 8-12 and July 15-19. For a few more snapshots of the summer fun at the Charleston Summer Classic, check out a previous Equestrian Stylist post here!
