Stony Hill Stables will host the annual Stony Hill Stables Foundation Benefit on Saturday, June 24th, from 6pm – 8pm on the pastoral grounds of Stony Hill Stables, located in Amagansett on Town Lane. The Stony Hill Stables Foundation is a not-for-profit organization created to promote equine sports through riding education and competitive opportunities for children and young adults in the local East End community. Now in its sixth year, the Stony Hill Stables Foundation is still the only stable in Long Island to offer this unique scholarship program.
Scholarship students as well as Grand Prix riders will take to the riding ring, entertaining benefit attendees with a special Dressage Exhibition, by Gold medalist Wick Hotchkiss, and a delightfully choreographed Pony Drill Team performance. This family-friendly event will also offer a “Horseless Horse Show” for kids 12 and under as well as a chance to meet Stony Hill’s very own Decano, named 2016 Horse of the Year!
Scholarship applications for the 2017 season are currently being accepted. Five scholarships will be awarded annually. Local residents of Montauk, Amagansett, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Southampton and West Hampton are encouraged to apply. Scholarship applications are available on-line at https://www.stonyhillstables.com/shsfoundation .
