The second-annual Central Park Horse Show full embraced the urban landscape of New York City during the five days of multi-disciplinary competition that took place Sept. 23-27. Central Park’s iconic Wollman Rink was completely transformed, and on Saturday it was time for the hunter competition.

In a fun twist, riders in the $1,000 Pony Hunter Freestyle were invited to select their own music for their rounds. The winner, adorable Sophie Gochman and her horse Bit Of Love, were named the winners. They competed to the tune of Royals by artist Lorde.

Hunter course designer Bobby Murphy threw caution to the wind and all conventions out the window when he set about to design a hunter course for the show. He did away with the typical poles, gates, and standards and instead opted for a more artistic design that was inspired by iconic New York landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and Subway.
