Whether you’re an equestrian enthusiast or just love horses – or you’re looking to spend an enjoyable early summer day in New Jersey’s beautiful countryside – the Mars Essex Horse Trials offers all of the above at picturesque Moorland Farm, one of the most breathtaking settings in the state.
The trials features the sport of Eventing – often referred to as an “equestrian triathlon” – which combines the elegance of Dressage, the thrill of Cross-Country and the precision of Show Jumping. The beautifully designed cross-country course is set to challenge more than 200 competitors this year.
Fun outdoor family-oriented activities include a classic car show with more than 200 entries; fresh food from local markets; a wide range of shopping from saddles and riding gear to jewelry and artwork; and a children’s activity center.
General admission: $15 per person for 2-day pass, purchased in advance; $20 for 1-day pass and $30 for 2-day pass, purchased at the gate. Ages 14 and under free.
