Wilton horse history

In celebration of National I Love Horses Dayhere's a photo of a horse show the Wilton Horse Club held Sept. 14, 1929, on the west side of the Norwalk River across from Schenck's Island.
Beginning in 1925, the Wilton Horse Club held annual horse shows, a number of which took place at the Wilton Riding Club, which used to be on Olmstead Hill Road. The shows featured jumping, walking, trotting, cantering, and horsemanship competitions for various ages.
