Eventers from Across the Nation Converge in Benton, LA This Weekend for the Holly Hill Horse Trials [VIDEO]

Every Spring and Fall, eventers from around the nation make the trip to Holly Hill Farm in Benton, LA for the Holly Hill Horse Trials.

Spectators can expect to see upwards of 200 horse and rider pairings this weekend competing in dressage, show jumping and cross country. The event is one of only two held in Louisiana and both events are held at Holly Hill. Eventing (show jumping, cross country and dressage) is the same thing you see on TV during the Summer Olympic games.

So, if you’ve got a horse crazy person in your house, make plans to visit Benton this week. The event is free and open to the public with vendors, food trucks and more.

From the Holly Hill Farm website:

Spectators Welcome!
If you’d like to see and hear more about eventing at Holly Hill Farm, feel free to come out and watch an event. Spectators are welcome and encouraged to ask questions. Admission is free and food & soft drinks are available for sale on the showgrounds. Wear comfortable shoes, bring your family (children very welcome), and portable lawn chairs. Guaranteed the excitement will be contagious…just keep your eyes up for the horses and riders, as they have the right-of-way at all times! All dogs must be leashed at all times.

 

For an idea of what to expect, check out the video! Last Spring I had the opportunity to help with the video in conjunction with KMSS Fox 33. We had an absolute blast! And if you do end up planning a visit, come say hi! I’ll be out on cross country all day Saturday!
