Norfolk Hunt Field Hunter Show

Hunter Pace The Norfolk Hunt Field Hunter Show will will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017. The event is a favorite among fox hunters, jumpers, eventers and riders of all levels as it provides a beautiful course of natural jumps, in a low-key relaxed atmosphere. Competitors consistently report they love the friendly ambiance, beautiful setting and strong tradition of foxhunting the show provides. Horses are judged on manners, performance and soundness.

The Field Hunter Show takes place on the lower field of the Norfolk Hunt Steeplechase Course (240 North Street, Medfield, MA) and incorporates flat classes, traditional foxhunting obstacles and other elements experienced in foxhunts, including a "Gone Away," "Hold Hard" and "Lead Over," in which the rider dismounts to lead their horse over a lowered fence. Hunting attire is required for all competitors. Formal attire with hunt colors is also permissible.

Norfolk member and trainer, Carol Mayo, of Sherborn, MA, will chair the Norfolk Hunt Field Hunter Show this year. British Horse Society trained and certified, Carol specializes in eventing and dressage, and grew up foxhunting in England.
