The Pennsylvania Hunt Cup is a Timber steeplechase race with a distance of four miles and 18 fences, over fair hunting country. From its inception it has been intended as a substantial test of both horse and rider, and is one of just three 4-mile steeplechase races sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association.
Create your own traditions on the first Sunday in November at the historic Pennsylvania Hunt Cup race meet.
