Norfolk Hunt Horse Show Receives Prestigious Heritage Competition Designation from the United States Equestrian Federation.

The Norfolk Hunt Horse Show, which will celebrate its 107th year on May 27 and 28, 2017, has been selected by the United States Equestrian Federation to join the ranks of such esteemed horseshows as The Hampton Classic, Devon Horse Show, Upperville Colt and Horse Show, and the Washington International to receive the prestigious "Heritage Competition" designation. In so doing, the NHHS becomes one of 24 shows -- out of 2,600 USEF competitions -- to hold the coveted honor given to a Federation show. The designation of a USEF Heritage Competition is reserved for those competitions that have been in existence for a quarter century or more, promoted and grown equestrian sport, and made a contribution to the community outside the gates of the horse show, by achieving, maintaining and promoting the equestrian ideas of sportsmanship and competition.

The Norfolk Hunt Club submitted extensive historical documentation to the USEF, as part of the submission process for the Heritage Competition designation. This information included the history of the show, many historic photos and letters from equestrian professionals -- including Olympians -- who have enjoyed competing in the Norfolk Hunt Horse Show.
