As part of Area 1, the Stoneleigh-Burnham School Equestrian Center has hosted USEA horse trials each summer and fall for many years. These horse trials have been some of the longest-running events in New England, with levels from beginner novice to preliminary.
After much consideration, USEA sanctioned horse trials will no longer be hosted at the SBS Equestrian Center. We have enjoyed being an eventing site, but find it necessary to dedicate our resources to more student-focused programming.
Stoneleigh-Burnham School and the Equestrian Center will continue to hold schooling horse trial events throughout the year, and will continue to offer our equestrian programs to students, community riders, and summer campers. Our students will continue to enjoy the investments that the Stoneleigh-Burnham Equestrian Center has made in our course, including two new water complexes, new jumps, and new footing in our woods.
We would like to thank our competitors, volunteers, and officials for their participation and support. We are especially grateful for our long-standing officials — as the backbone of our horse trial events, they have made our shows possible:
Jim Gornell, Course Designer and Stadium Judge
SBS Alumna Karen Hathaway
Starter and Time Keeper Howard & Shelly Sienkiewicz
Announcers Erin Keehan, Show Secretary
George Halkett Director of the Equestrian Center
