What to Wear to a Steeplechase Race in the Main Line Region



Some of the year’s biggest fashion moments will take place this month at equestrian events like the Willowdale Steeplechase (May 13), Radnor Hunt Races (May 19), and Ladies’ Hat Day at the Devon Horse Show (May 30). We asked three local boutique owners for their insights on what to wear.
