$5,000 Mane ‘n Tail Hunter Rider Challenge, Old Salem Farm, North Salem, NY

Straight Arrow Products Inc., makers of The Original Mane ‘n Tail grooming products is looking forward to the $5,000 Mane ‘n Tail Hunter Rider Challenge during Week 1 and Week 2 at Old Salem Farm. The challenge will allow riders to accumulate points at Old Salem Farm in conjunction with the Hampton Classic Horse Show, August 25th- September 1st.

Old Salem is an iconic horse show, and a must attend event for riders. The home of the United States Olympic Team Selection Trials and World Cup qualifier classes, Old Salem holds a prestigious status. The barn and indoor ring, originally built in 1964, sits atop a hill overlooking the pristine 120 acres that encompasses Old Salem Farm. More than 130 Hunter and Jumper classes are offered in Week 1 & 2, where riders of all levels will compete head to head.

The Mane ‘n Tail Hunter Rider Challenge debuts this year, where riders accumulate points in the divisions; Performance 3’6” (Old Salem Farm only), Green 3’6” & 3’9”, Green Conformation, High Performance Conformation and High Performance. The series was developed to unify riders outside of the individual Hunter classes. A hand stitched armband will be worn by the leading rider and Mane ‘n Tail will be awarding a beautiful, hand crafted basket to the Grand Hunter Champion each week at Old Salem.

The baskets are filled with assorted Mane ‘n Tail grooming products, featuring our Ultimate Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner, and a SmartPak gift certificate. Accompanied by a mini stuffed horse, rain poncho, and two Mane ‘n Tail shirts, you will be equipped for the week!

In addition to the baskets, there will be gift bags handed out to riders filled with the new, Ultimate Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo is a new formula, fortified with coconut oil to give your horse the gloss they need to stand out in the ring! We are excited to support the riders and watch along the ringside with you!

The final presentation will be awarded on Friday afternoon, August 30th, in the Anne Aspinall Ring at the Hampton Classic Horse Show.

Keep an eye out on the jumbotron and the Grand Prix ring for our blue running horses at Old Salem Farm! Best of luck to all riders!
