GHF Fall Classic

2007 was the inaugural year for the Groton House Farm Fall Classic Three Phase. It is an excellent way for beginner eventers to end their summer showing season. We offer courses at the Elementary and Beginner Novice levels. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce your horse to Groton House Farm’s beautiful terrain.

Even though the calendar said Fall, it was a beautiful summer day. Thank you every one for a great show!    We look forward to seeing you all back for the “real” Summer Classic in June!
