The Spirit of the Horse remains the theme of the day’s exciting events, which include Parade of Breeds, Barrel Racing demonstrations, Lowcountry Hunt Demonstration, Hunt Chase and Six Bar Jumping concluding with a thrilling Polo Match.
“Our goal continues to be showcasing the Spirit of the Horse for the benefit of local charities and increasing the public awareness of the equestrian lifestyle. Spectators will continue to enjoy magnificent horses working as one with their skilled riders,” stated Dr. Termotto.
As in the past, there will be a special Art Tent featuring fine equestrian art for sale along with offerings from other vendors.
Rose Hill Plantation Equestrian Center is located on Hwy. 278 in Bluffton. Gates open at 11:00 a.m. with exhibitions beginning at 12:30 p.m., capped off by the day’s Polo Match at 2:30 p.m. General admission is $15. Over the years, this event has raised nearly $250,000 that was donated to numerous charities in the Hilton Head/Savannah communities.
