The 12th annual Plantation Field International Horse Trials and Country Fair will take place September 19-22 at the historic Plantation Field in the horse country of Unionville. This year organizers are teaming up with Taylor Harris Insurance Services, Victory Brewing Company, and the Chester County Food Bank as well as numerous members of the Unionville and Kennett Square communities to bring spectators a classic country weekend.

Olympian and FEI five-star competitor Ryan Wood, whose Woodstock Eventing is based locally, said, “You haven’t been to a horse event ‘til you’ve been to Plantation International.”

The event begins Thursday and Friday with dressage. Tailgating is available Saturday and Sunday overlooking the CCI4*-S and CCI3*-S cross-country courses. Artfully built by world-class ETB Equine Construction for fast-paced, the cross-country course is the scene for nail-biting action as the competitors, including multiple Olympians, navigate solid obstacles over the rolling hills of Chester County.

In addition to the excitement of cross-country jumping, on Saturday, September 21st the organizers are pleased to announce the return of the Unionville Antique Car Show presented by Last Chance Garage.

Also back by popular demand is the Sunday morning 5k Fun Run, where dogs (on leashes please!) are encouraged to run with their owners. The Kid’s Korner and Pop-Up Village will have animals, crafts, and shopping for everyone on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Pack a picnic or enjoy local food trucks like Hood’s BBQ and Natalie’s Food Truck and quench your thirst with a stop by our Victory Brewing Company Hilltop Beer Garden! Tickets are still available for brunch honoring legendary horseman Bruce Davidson, featuring the thrilling PRO Bareback Puissance high jump competition.

Sponsorship packages are available which include Friday and Saturday evening parties, full access to the Sponsor Tent all weekend, as well as Sunday Brunch and the best seats in the house to view the action and entertainment in the Main Arena. Take note! For each carload that brings an approved food donation, Plantation Field Equestrian Events will donate $5 to the Chester County Food Bank. "Here in Pennsylvania's wealthiest county, people in need are living alongside us," said Larry Welsch, Executive Director of the Chester County Food Bank. "Community partnerships are vital to fulfill our mission to mobilize the community to ensure access to real, healthy food.
