Attracting one of the biggest crowds in terms of riders and guests, the 83rd edition of The Camden Hunt Hunter Trials was one of its most successful in its long and storied history.

The annul show was held Saturday, Nov. 17 at Hunter Trial Hill, located across the main entrance from the Springdale Race Course on Knights Hill Road in Camden.

A new class in a series was added to the Trials: Carolina Performance Hunters which brought in exhibitors from Moore County (near Southern Pines, N.C.), the Lowcountry and Aiken. The second stop in the series was in Tryon, N.C., in which The Camden Hunt had its very successful junior riders’ trio of Mell Boucher, Mary Boucher and Hayden Boling representing the club.

The Camden Hunt is enjoying a strong year with nearly a dozen new members being added to its ranks. Additionally, a larger number of junior riders and a new, budding mid-30s age group has come on board.
