Chelsea Dwinell and Heather Fargis Champion in Adult Amateur Hunter Divisions
A rainy morning at the 88th Annual Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show, presented by the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund, couldn’t stop hunter riders from competing Thursday, with the two age sections of the Adult Amateur Hunters taking center stage. In the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunters, Chelsea Dwinell and her own Keystone walked away with the tricolor ribbon, while Heather Fargis and Bluestone Stables’ Emerson captured the championship in the Adult Amateur 35 and Over Hunter division.
The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund has a significant role in the 88th Annual Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show as the presenting sponsor. The private philanthropic fund works to support children’s charities that provide care and access to education, as well as charities that are dedicated to the protection of animals. The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund is a familiar name within the equestrian community as a reputable fund that is dedicated to both the benefiting charities and the growth of the sport. Without organizations like the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund the Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show could not continue its long-standing tradition that has impacted the lives of so many in and out of the equestrian sport.
