Coveside Stables – Home of the Coveside Classic Horse Show

Coveside Stables hosts the annual Coveside Classic Hunter-Jumper Competition. Now in its eighth year, the 2016 Classic takes place August 24 to 28, 2016.  Featuring five days of great competition in a friendly atmosphere, the 2016 Classic will feature a $5,000 Jump Canada Dexter Construction Hunter Classic, a $3,000 Jumper Grand Prix, and many other feature classes sure to challenge and delight our competitors.  We’ll be bringing back the Hunter and Jumper Nations Cup Events, due to their popularity with our competitors and spectators. The Classic is now the largest equestrian competition in the Atlantic provinces, and is the highlight of the competition season. 

At the Coveside Classic, we “Ride for Life”.  Equestrian sport is enjoyed by riders of all ages, and there is a class for everyone at the Classic.
