    Essex Horse Trials & Peter Chesson Memorial Car Show

    The MARS Essex Horse Trials is proud to support the Greater Newark LifeCamp through a country weekend of equestrian competition, shopping, fine cars, and great food. This year’s event will be held on June 21st through June 23rd at beautiful Moorland Farm where the Far Hills Race Meeting runs every October. Many local horses and riders will be competing over the course of the weekend in an “equestrian triathlon” known as eventing. Eventing combines the elegance of dressage, the thrill of cross-country, and the precision of show jumping at various levels. The Horse Trials are excited to welcome thousands of spectators and hundreds of competitors to a weekend of exciting activities! Visit us at www.essexhorsetrials.org for general admission, tailgating tickets, and more information.
