Our amazing local Olympic equestrians, Phillip Dutton and Boyd Martin, made page 1 of last week's Kennett Paper (what a nice photo by my friend Chris Barber of bronze medalist Phillip and his wife, Evie!), and you can see them "up close and personal" from Sept. 15 to 18 as they compete at the Plantation Field International Horse Trials here in Unionville.
This is a great event for competitors and spectators. It's a sublimely beautiful venue, you get a front-row view of the horses and riders, there's lots of shopping and food, and the people-watching is first-class. The theme of this year's event is "Septemberfest." Admission is free on Friday, Sept. 16; the other days admission is $20 per car.
The website has full details and the schedule.
