    North of NYC North of NYC By Houlihan Lawrence By Houlihan Lawrence by

    Every September, the residents of North Salem and beyond gather at the historic Old Salem Farm to celebrate the American Gold Cup, one of the most prestigious and iconic equestrian events in the world of International Show Jumping.

    Now in its 49th year, the American Gold Cup is one of the United States’ most popular horse shows. Taking place from Wednesday, September 11 through Sunday, September 15, the elite show jumping competition is complemented by boutique shopping and family activities, making it a can’t miss fall event North of NYC.

    As a resident of North Salem and an avid Fox Hunter and rider myself, the American Gold Cup is an event my family looks forward to attending every year. I’ve rounded up details about the event, as well as a few North Salem properties any horse enthusiast would love to call home.

    Living in Horse Country

    I have had the privilege of calling Bedford and North Salem home for over 20 years, raising my family in a place where beauty abounds thanks to open land, reservoirs, farms, and high-end agriculture. I can’t imagine living anywhere else than my farm and horse property alongside my husband, children, four horses, two boarders, and three dogs.

    From my personal love of the area, I have found a passion for helping clients find the right property to match their lifestyle. From riding to walking and hiking, to farming and gardening, or simply sitting back and enjoying the bucolic openness of the land and views, North Salem truly offers something for everyone.

    Here, I am excited to share four stunning North Salem lifestyle properties perfect for horse enthusiasts.
