Labor Day Weekend

The Woodstock Fair Open Horse Show, held every Labor Day Weekend in Connecticut's northeast corner, is well known for its sidesaddle-friendly atmosphere. Riders come from all over the Northeast to participate in the Sidesaddle Division.... well as against astride riders in open breed and discipline classes.


Equestriennes can display their skills in Sidesaddle Equitation and Discipline Rail......


......and the colorful Side Saddle Period Costume Class is always a spectator favorite.


From Lead Line to Hunter Hack to Western/English Versatility class, the riders in open classes demonstrate that anything their astride sisters can do, they can do also - but with the grace and elegance that belongs to the sidesaddle rider alone.
