The Vermont Summer Festival horse show is a favorite July tradition. Starting with a scenic drive from New York City up the Taconic Parkway and into the beautiful Green Mountains, the quaint towns of Dorset and Manchester are a welcome change of scenery after a busy few months in Manhattan. 'Stuart', (a sweet and athletic Irish Sport horse) loved being in the showring to demonstrate his jumping skills, and earned lots of carrots. After a long day at the horse show, it is wonderful to relax at the Equinox Hotel with a glass of champagne and view of the mountains. Happy Summer!
