Fuel up and grab a bite to eat
No matter where you are in the show park, there are many food options available. If you are feeling extra hungry, stop by the Canter Inn for a burger and fries. If you are looking for a quick snack, or if you are seeking some tasty gluten free options, try the Bale & Bucket located on Vendor’s Row. During all our major spectator events there are various food trucks onsite as well.
Seek Shade at the Hunter Hospitality Pavilion
If you are looking to take a step back from all the hustle of the horse show, head down the main boulevard to the Hunter Hospitality Pavillion. Here you can relax in the shade on some lounge couches and watch some Hunter classes; a slightly different type of competitive jumping. Hunter classes are judged based off the horse and rider’s ability to execute a flawless round. A hunter class is judge subjectively on the horse’s movement and style over fences and should look steady, smooth and effortless for the horse and rider team.
Reenergize with a speciality coffee at the Nations Cup
After all the shopping and exploring throughout the park, you might need a little mid-day pick me up. Head to the Nations Cup coffee hut where our friendly and outgoing baristas will be able to whip up a great tasting coffee or frappe in no time.
Drop a line in one of the fish ponds
Pack your rod and some bait and you might be able to snag one of the hundreds of Rainbow trout that reside in both our onsite ponds!
Stretch your legs and take a walk around the Split Rail Trail
With over 80 acres of farmland, tbird offers an exceptional walking trail around the perimeter of the property. Start at the 248th spectator gate entrance and make your way through the grounds finishing at the Baker View arena.
