Spectators delight as equestrians test their horsemanship skills at The Farmers’ Museum’s 17th Annual Benefit Horse Show to be held on Sunday, June 9. The show begins at 8:00 a.m., rain or shine.  Admission is free for the general public.

Handsome horses and poised riders traverse a beautifully designed course with jumps that represent Cooperstown landmarks. Riders meet their match in 11 hunter and equitation classes for children and adults.

A delicious luncheon is an elegant option at the Horse Show. Watch the competition while enjoying tented, ring-side seating. This summer luncheon is served from 12:00 to 2:00 pm, with coffee and pastries available in the morning and refreshments in the afternoon.  Tickets are $45 per adult and $10 per child (12 and under).
