Hoof n' Woof Jumping Derby at Fairfield June Show on June 22!

Who doesn't love dogs and horses -- especially miniature horses? The EQUUS Foundation will hold its first "Hoof n' Woof Jumping Derby" on Thursday, June 22, from 4pm to 6pm, in association with the Fairfield County Hunt Club June Horse Show which is being held from June 20 through June 24. The Hoof n' Woof Jumping Derby is a jumping competition featuring adoptable dogs and miniature horses.

"We're partnering with SPCA Westchester and EQUUS Foundation Guardian charity, Rising Starr Horse Rescue, to help promote the adoption of dogs and horses in need of forever homes," said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President. "We are thrilled to be able offer this event free to the equestrian and local community thanks to our event sponsor, Fairfield Equine Associates."

But that's not all! In addition to the opportunity to shop at the horse show's boutiques and to watch the competition, now celebrating its 100th Anniversary, the EQUUS Foundation will also be holding Bouncy Horse Racing. It's harder than you may think and truly tests the rider's balance and endurance skills. But -- most of all, it's great fun!

Advance RSVP is requested! Please RSVP at: equusfoundation.org/fairfield
