St Christopher’s Horse Show

The St. Christopher’s Horse Show is set to return to Swan Lake Stables in Littlestown, PA, May 11-15. St. Christopher’s hosts hunter-jumper competition at one of the premier hunter-jumper facilities in the Northeast.

Swan Lake Stables is located on 300 carefully-managed acres in south-central Pennsylvania just 45 miles from Harrisburg, 50 miles from Baltimore and 90 miles from Washington D.C. The riding arenas at Swan Lake are filled with beautiful jumps and are complete with well-maintained footing; riders’ show experience is one they never forget.

“We are so happy to be hosting the show at Swan Lake Stables again this year!” said Annette Longenecker of Ryegate Show Services, producer of the St. Christopher Horse Shows. “We received rave reviews from the riders, trainers, sponsors and spectators regarding the past two shows there and we can’t wait to see everyone again this year.”

The 2016 St. Christopher’s Horse Show will offer USEF National “A” Hunters/ 3* Jumpers, USHJA National Hunter Derby, USHJA Pre-Green Incentive Stake and multiple hunter classics. All traditional A & C-rated hunter sections will be offered along with Junior Hunter 3’3”. The tradition of offering the Hunter Breeding division will continue.

The Jumper Ring will offer a Regional $25,000 Grand Prix as well as qualifying classes for the Young Jumpers Championships. The jumper divisions will include Adult-Amateur, Junior/Amateur-Owner, Children’s jumpers plus a Schooling Jumper section.

The equitation divisions will offer medal classes for juniors and adults including ASPCA Horsemanship, Taylor Harris National Children’s Medal, Pessoa/US Hunter Seat Medal, and Ariat National Adult Medal. The equitation division will also include a lead line and a walk-trot division.
