Millbrook Horse Trials

This weekend Dutchess County’s prestigious sporting event, the Millbrook Horse Trials, begins its four-day long equestrian competition. The event attracts world class and Olympic competitors from all over the US and abroad to the rolling hills of Coole Park Farm in the hopes of winning the $25,000 first place prize.

Competitors from beginner to advanced participate in the three traditional trials of dressage, cross country and stadium jumping; with penalty points deducted from each run. The lowest score at the end of all three is pronounced the winner.

The Millbrook Horse Trials also hosts a number of other events including the Crooked Rooster BBQ, the Waterview and the anticipated Millbrook Horse Trial Benefit Luncheon where the attendants can watch riders compete for $10,000.

The event starts on Thursday, July 31st and continues through to August 3rd in the quaint upstate town of Millbrook NY. Tickets are still available through the Millbrook Horse Trail website listed below.
