The American Gold Cup returns to Old Salem Farm on June Road in North Salem.  I have attended this awe-inspiring event several times and I can tell you first hand that it's a great way to spend the day even if you are not a rider.

Of course, the competitions are so much fun to watch. It is so easy to get caught up in the beauty, grace and thrill of the American Gold Cup competitions. But there is so many other things that your family will love. Pony rides, face painting, great food and, my favorite, boutique shopping. It is very easy to get caught up in the excitment of this amazing event.

I mean, really, where can you find real-life Cinderella shoes like this:

Yes, those are crystals on the soles. Take that, Christian Louboutin!

I was captivated by the crystals. My hubby, on the other hand, was mesmerized by this plane:

Rich Guerrera was interested in purchasing this plane at the American Gold Cup.

American Gold Cup continues through this Sunday at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, New York. For more information or to stream the event live, click here.
