Ox Ridge Hunt Club was founded in 1914. The present 37-acre property was formerly owned by the opera singer, John McCormick. He operated this property as a dairy farm. The Club’s name represents the use of oxen in John’s operation, as well as the ridge that crowns the polo field.
In 1929, Otto Heuckeroth came to ride and for over 40 years remained the nationally famed manager of Ox Ridge. With trainer Miss V. Felicia Townsend, they developed some of the trend-setters in Hunter Seat Equitation: George Morris, Ronnie Mutch, Victor Hugo-Vidal and Otto’s daughter, Patty Heuckeroth.
