“Old Salem Farm is honored to once again host the Maclay Regionals and welcome the Northeast’s most talented junior riders to our facility,” said Scott Hakim, president and CEO of Old Salem Farm. “Coming on the heels of our highly successful Spring Horse Shows, our September shows promise lots of excitement, and we’re thrilled to start things off with a weekend featuring show jumping’s stars of the future!”

This weekend's event will feature courses designed by renowned course designers Paul Jewell and Nancy Wallis in Old Salem’s June Road ring. The ring dimensions, dressing and jumps mimic the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park, home to the Maclay National Championship.

Festivities kick off Friday, September 9 with warm-up classes for the Maclay followed by a reception for the Regional Draw at 4:00 p.m. All Maclay Regional participants, trainers and parents are invited as guests of Old Salem Farm.
