Unionville, PA -- Join us as we honor our 2023 Equestrian Legend of Unionville honoree, Joy Slater, in a ringside brunch celebration on Sunday, September 24, sponsored by The National Bank of Malvern. Ticket includes general admission to the grounds for Sunday, as well as brunch in the ringside VIP tent.


In 1981, Joy Slater Carrier became the first woman to win the Maryland Hunt Cup, riding Cancottage. Frank Chapot, a Show Jumping Hall of Fame member as both rider and coach, had said "Joy was the greatest all-around horsewoman he had ever seen. I guess someone who can—all in the same day—win a sidesaddle class at the prestigious Devon Horse Show, win a timber race at Fair Hill in the afternoon and return to Devon and win the Amateur Owner Jumper Stake that night … is a complete horsewoman".
