Wilsonville, OR (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
Equestrian enthusiasts will once again descend on Wilsonville, Oregon in July for the prestigious Country Classic Horse Show and Wine Festival. The annual event, considered one of the Pacific Northwest's premier horse events, will be held on July 14-18 at the Hunter Creek Farm along Wilsonville Road.
First held in 1973, the Country Classic is a World Champion Hunter Rider event. It attracts top-notch riders, horses, owners, and trainers mostly from the West Coast and other parts of the country, as well as a loyal following of spectators. Riders will compete in featured events including the $25,000 Grand Prix, the $10,000 Hunter Classic, and the $5,000 Open Welcome. In addition to the contests, attendees will enjoy the many gifts, exhibits, luncheons, buffets, wine tasting, and more provided by various food and retail vendors.
The Country Classic is one of the highlights in Wilsonville’s annual event calendar. The city, which is part of the Portland Metropolitan Area, is known as the Gateway to the Willamette Valley and Oregon Horse Country due to the growth of many horse-related industries, Portland equestrian homes and land in the area.
"Wilsonville is fast becoming a renowned location for equine-related industries," says Broker/Realtor Nancy Cameron of Paulson Real Estate, who specializes in Southwest Portland equestrian properties. "There's been an increase in equestrian facilities, schools, trainers, ranches, boarders, and, of course, equestrian properties," she adds, “Which makes Wilsonville and the surrounding areas an ideal place for horse lovers alike to invest in the many equine tailored homes and land currently on the market right now.”
Among these prime Portland horse properties include the venue of the Country Classic Horse Show itself, Hunter Creek Farm, known for its many hunter/jumper shows held during the summer season. Other popular equine properties, Cameron notes, are the Whip ‘N’ Spur stable and training facility, and the French Hill Farm in Aurora, home to a Riding Academy and Summer Camp.
A resident of the Portland Metro Area for over 20 years, Nancy Cameron formerly competed as an equestrian rider at Hunter/Jumper shows, and has owned horses for most of her life. This accounts for her special affinity and expertise in equestrian homes, equestrian care, property management and land sales.
