Field Trip for June 22, 2017


This was one of our more popular field trips last year so let's do one again before it gets too hot.  Meet in Big Lots parking lot, 204a Thompson St.  Hendersonville.  This is just off off Four Seasons Blvd. behind the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop.  Park at the far end of the lot close to Four Seasons Blvd.  meetup at 9:00 am.   Drive South on I-26 to Hwy 74 East to Pea Ridge Rd.  Event will be on the right.  Park in front of the huge clock.



They will be having a Hunter/ Jumper event in the main arena. This event judges the horse and rider over the course.  

Jumper: speed and accuracy of the rider are judged on subjective form.  


Hunter:  Judged on the form of the horse.   Other photo ops are the side rings, stables and barns.  We will meet back under the clock around 12:30/ 1:00 pm to leave for lunch.


Return to Hwy 74 West to Hwy 9 North to Larkins on the Lake.  1020 Memorial Hwy. Lake Lure.  Classic American food with a four star rating sits right on Lake Lure.   After lunch, weather permitting we can stop at the "Flowering Bridge" for some close-up shots then return on Hwy 64 back to Big Lots.


Recommend zoom lens , a macro lens and a tripod. The Equestrian Center is a FREE event.
