Courses By Design
Hunter Horse Show Series held at Gleneayre Farm in Lumberton, New Jersey
About Courses By Design
The management of Courses by Design originally started running horse shows in 1979. At that first show a top quality facility was selected, a knowledgeable horse person officiated and the courses were well designed and decorated. The exhibitors and trainers were our top concern.
Those traditions worked well then and they still work today!
Over the years different facilities were used to hold the various shows. The Marlton Equestrian Center, Buttonwood Stables, and the English Setter Club were just a few of the host sites. The rings at these facilities were always large with excellent footing for the horses competing. The officials that were asked to judge were knowledgeable horse people from the area. Some of those first judges included Robin Rost, Mark Leone, Cynthia Hankins and Kip Rosenthal. Riders competed throughout the year in stake classes and hunter classics for challenge trophies and high score awards.
Ideas that were well received by exhibitors then were continued and built upon over the years. The past definitely helped to mold the shows of the future.
From 2004 through 2011 the shows ran at Chesterfield Farm in Chesterfield, NJ. Starting in 2012 these shows will be moved to the lovely Gleneayre Farm in Lumberton, NJ. Once again a quality facility, with beautiful rings, fabulous jumps and inviting courses will begin a new show series. Our objective remains to provide exhibitors and trainers the kind of horse show people enjoy attending. The shows that were started in 2004 will continue to run with the same focus and commitment to the exhibitors.
The places may change but the ideas for a good show remain constant.
See you at the in gate!
