Hunter Horse Show Series held at Gleneayre Farm in Lumberton, New Jersey

About Courses By Design

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!

Show Updates

Welcome to the 2024 Gleneayre Show Series! We're looking forward to another great season with you!

Please note a few updates:


The Gleneayre Derby Show will *only* have derby classes this year. There will be no "regular" classes, and therefore no points from the November 2-3 show weekend will count toward the Series Awards. 

New Division for 2024: Mini Stirrup Advanced Rider features a cross rail course class and a hunter hack class with a test. Mini Stirrup Beginner will have the same figure 8 and ground poles classes as in the past. 

The "Do Work" Pony Hunter Memorial Trophy in honor of a very special pony, this new trophy for 2024 will be awarded to the pony accumulating the most points throughout the show series in the low hunter and children's hunter pony divisions. Graciously donated by Chesney's Fan Club.


Special Classes

Horseflight Equitation Ride-Off

Sponsored by Emil Spadone


The featured class on September 8th will consist of our top ten scoring Equitation riders from the series competing in a two phase ride-off on the flat and over fences. The top 4 riders from this group will be asked back for further testing to determine the final placings. All riders will return for Ribbons & Victory Gallop


Sponsored by M & N Farms


Throughout the spring season, our judges will be asked to select three horses from each show that best represents their "Ideal Hunter". On October 13th, these horses will have the opportunity to compete against each other in a two round Hunter Classic. The first round will be judged and scored on style and brilliance. Round two will be judged and scored on suitability and handiness. Scores will be combined to determine 2024 M&N Farms "Ideal Hunter."

Top 10 scoring horses will be asked to return to the ring to ride for awards: cooler, ribbons, and prize money.
