The Monmouth County Hunt
With the majestic friesians!!!
Sunday, January 30th
Enjoy a day out hunting with one of the stunning and elegant Friesians. The snowy backdrop, speckled with scarlet coats, the sound of horn and a field of riders and their horses is a sight to see!
The Monmouth County Hunt was founded in 1885 by Peter F. Collier, he built a kennel and stable on property he came upon during a hunting excursion in the Marlboro Hills territory, Marlboro Township, New Jersey. He named it Rest Hill and built a mansion, a replica of Mount Vernon that still stands.
Today the hunt still carries out the early traditions of fox hunting on their beautiful territory. They have a nice sand footing allowing them to hunt through the winter and a warm up ring for getting acquainted with your horse ahead of the ride.
Uniform: Formal Hunt- black coat, white shirt, white stock tie, tan breeches, cleaned black boots. Canary or tattersall vest optional. Black helmet required, gloves (black or brown) recommended.
