The Stony Hill Stables Foundation, founded by the Hotchkiss family who have owned and operated Stony Hill Stables of Amagansett for more than 50 years, will hold its annual benefit Saturday, June 21 from 6-8 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the foundation that promotes excellence in equine sports through riding education and competitive opportunities for children and young adults on the East End.
The foundation’s goal is to create essential opportunities for children and adults to connect with the community, grow physically and emotionally, while benefiting from a life enhancing experience.
Scholarship applications for the 2014 season are currently being accepted. Local residents of Montauk, Amagansett, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Southampton and West Hampton are encouraged to apply. Scholarship applications are available at www.stonyhillstables.com .
The Annual Stony Hill Stables Foundation Benefit Cocktail Party will be held on the grounds of Stony Hill Stables on Town Lane. There will be a special dressage exhibition with narration, a pony drill team presentation performed by the impressive young riders of Stony Hill Stables, and a dressage pas de deux finale performed by Grand Prix riders.
Stony Hill Stables is the only stable in Long Island to offer this unique scholarship program. Launched in the summer of 2012, the success of the Stony Hill Stables Foundation is evident by mounting ribbons. Gifted scholarship recipients have already earned ribbons in very prestigious horse shows, including the Sagaponack Horse Show, The Hampton Classic and the famed Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), held annually in Wellington, FL.
At the benefit, Stony Hill Stables will also formally introduce their new trio of talented trainers: Ashley Lynott, (Director of the Camp), Katherine Byrd (Dressage Trainer) and Courtney Miller (Head Hunter/Jumper Trainer).
