Coveside Classic Horse Show

Municipality of Chester

"The essential joy of being with horses

is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of

grace, beauty, spirit and freedom."

Sharon Ralls Lemon


Every year beautiful Coveside Stables on Haddon Hill, near the Village of Chester hosts the annual Coveside Classic Hunter-Jumper Competition.

It's five days of equestrian excitement featuring tremendous skill and showmanship in a wonderfully friendly atmosphere.

A marvellous milestone was marked in 2018 as the Coveside Classic celebrated its 10th Anniversary and secured their position as the largest equestrian competition in the Atlantic provinces, and without question a highlight of the competition season.  We're ever so proud to have this event held here in the Municipality of Chester each year.

The event is FREE for spectators and features a truly tasty concession stand filled with local fare and plenty of vendors with the latest in gear and garb for riders of all sizes and their horses.

So mark your calendars and make your plans to take in all the excitement when the 2021 Coveside Classic runs August 23rd through August 29th.

You’ll find additional details about this year’s competition on their Facebook event page here.
