Wilson College Equestrian Center hosted its annual Halloween Hunter Jumper schooling show Sun, Oct. 31. The equestrian center held the show in the Hawthorne Arena. Warm up began at 8:00am and the first class began at 9:00am.

An Event for Everyone

The barn held 30 classes, four of which were "fun and games classes." The remaining classes spanned ten different divisions. Divisions included beginner, maiden, novice, pleasure, puddle jumpers, low hunter, open hunter, hopeful jumpers, baby green horse and green horse. The "fun and games" classes were a costume class, egg and spoon, crepe paper pairs and bareback dollar.

The Hunter Jumper show was open to the community. Wilson students and professors competed as well as local equestrians and students from nearby colleges.
