Saratoga Horse Shows at White Hollow Farm hosted three popular spring shows in May, with 11 grand champions awarded. The Saratoga Classic Horse Shows on June 12-16 and June 19-23 historically sell out and will offer some of the best hunter competition in the Northeast this summer. While the entry deadline has passed for the Saratoga Classic Horse Shows in June, there are still a limited number of stalls available. Enter online today at www.HorseShowsOnline.com.

Heritage Farm, based in Katonah, NY, and led by head trainer Andre Dignelli, brought a group of horses and riders to compete at the 2024 Saratoga Spring Horse Shows with fantastic results. Trainer Laena Romond rode to a championship in the Green Hunters, while Callie Seaman and Oceanside captured the Grand Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’3” Championship for the series.

Heritage Farm junior rider Cecelia Perry had top-three finishes in the hunter, jumper, and equitation divisions. "I thought Saratoga was a great show,” she said. “I felt like it really got me back in the groove, and afterward I was extremely prepared for the Devon Horse Show."

Heritage Farm trainer Dottie Barnwell Areson noted, “Saratoga in May is going to have a permanent place on our schedule. The variety of classes, beautiful jumps, and good footing make it the perfect opener for a busy spring and summer."
