Stony Hill Stables Foundation Annual Benefit
Stony Hill Stables, owned and operated by the Hotchkiss family for more than five decades, will host the annual Stony Hill Stables Foundation Benefit on Saturday, June 30, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. on the pastoral grounds of Stony Hill Stables, located in Amagansett on Town Lane. The Stony Hill Stables Foundation, a not-for-profit organization created to promote equine sports through riding education and competitive opportunities for children and young adults in the East End community, continues to be the only stable in Long Island to offer this unique scholarship program.
Now in its seventh year, the scholarship program is on sound footing and has given local riders a path to their equestrian dreams. With a grass-roots approach, the scholarship program has opened its barn doors to local kids. Scholarships are customized to suit each recipient, and each recipient participates in creating his or her own program, based on the budget of their scholarship, and their individual goals and interests.
This year’s annual family-friendly event promises to be full of surprises. Scholarship students as well as Grand Prix riders will take to the ring. Bailey Thompson and USDF Gold Medalist Wick Hotchkiss with perform Dressage, the Stony Hill Stable’s Pony Drill Team will delight attendees with a specially choreographed performance, and there will even be an exhilarating Jumping Exhibition!
Scholarship applications for the 2018 season are currently being accepted. Five to seven scholarships will be awarded annually. Local residents of Montauk, Amagansett, East Hampton, Sag Harbor and Southampton are encouraged to apply. Scholarship applications are available on-line at stonyhillstables.com/foundation . Deadline for submitting applications is June 22, 2018. Scholarship winners will be announced on June 30 at the Stony Hill Stables Foundation Benefit!
