Heart of the Carolinas 3-Day Event & H.T. (HOTC) at Southern 8ths Farm is a destination event for riders up and down the east coast each spring. In addition to their ordinary horse trials divisions, they also boast a plethora of educational eventing opportunities.

The new Modified level, a stepping stone between Training and Preliminary, will also make its Area III debut at the Chesterfield, S.C. venue. The HOTC crew pulls out all the stops to make sure their May event offers something for everyone.
