Nearly 1,000 of the world's top equestrians compete this week for a $65,000 purse at the 41st annual Hunter Jumper Classic
. The tournament starts today and features three obstacle courses that challenge riders to steer horses over fences, gates, and pools of water. After five days of preliminaries, finalists run one last set of courses on Sunday for the $19,000 grand prize. Side attractions throughout the week range from free pony rides and agility tests for dogs to a Friday-night cocktail party.
