AMY CANTEY, JOINT MASTER of the Camden Hunt, will be part of Sunday’s 109th Camden Horse Show.

In the spring of 1909, in a town known for its love of horses, a tradition was born; the first Camden Horse Show --- focusing on the horses that hunt and jump --- was held.

On Sunday, March 25, this tradition will continue with the 109th Camden Horse Show to be held at Dale Thiel Stables, Firetower Road, Camden, beginning at 9 a.m., rain or shine.

Classes are open to children and adults and will include classes over fences and on the flat with classes for green hunters, working hunters, handy hunters and classes on the outside course.

The S. C. Clyburn Class, one of the highlights of this show, is open only to horses which have hunted six or more times this past season. The horses jump a course of jumps like those found in hunt country including logs, coops and fallen trees. This class will be listed as Class 11, a change from previous years.

The always popular Hazel Thompson Family Class will be held – to be entered by at least two members of the immediate family to be shown at the walk and the trot. There will be a Lead Line class for young children and walk- trot classes open to all ages.

The judge will be Mrs. Lita Wangensteen.

There is no admission charge, but ringside parking is $20. Free parking will also be available.
