What an amazing October weekend for all things horsey! I had the privilege to attend Far Hills Races in Far Hills, NJ on Saturday and then made a quick trip down to Fair Hill International 3-Day Event on Sunday Morning to watch the jog-out.
Over 17 million dollars have been raised for the medical center throughout the year. The legendary Far Hills Race Meeting in Far Hills, NJ, is held each October at the crossroads of three of the wealthiest counties in America. The event’s upscale demographic of over 35,000 spectators travel from throughout the New York metropolitan area, attracted by the see-and-be-seen atmosphere of fall finery, extravagant tailgating and world-class thoroughbred steeple chasing.
It was a bit muddy, so boots were a must. Dubarry boots lined the Vip Tent as well as in the In-Field. Great horsey bags, oil skin coats, belts, and horsey scarves were easily found. Also a must was a pretty wool felt hat adorn with feathers.
A Best in Show- were these Equestrianista’s in the In-Field. I had to take a picture of them, they looked great. They had all the basic pieces that one should wear to a fall equestrian event. These friends were wearing pretty tweeds, a fur vest- which is very in right now, great sun glasses, a nice horsey scarf and some other fun accessories. I also loved their cow hide coozies, which they got from a little shop in Stowe, VT called Alpine Home.
There were some Show Stoppers as well. A black thong hanging out of low rise jeans, 80’s slacks up past your belly button, a strange multi-pattern blousey poncho, and stripped stockings with short shorts were no-no’s at the races.
All and all, the races were great and everyone was looking great and having fun!
