Description:

The Myopia Schooling Field is a private property owned by the Myopia Hunt Club and is used primarily by the Myopia Hunt and Myopia Polo groups for events and practice sessions.  The property is open to the public for passive recreation.  The newly rerouted Discover Hamilton Trail begins at the Schooling Field, just behind the ball fields at Patton Park.  Equestrians are welcome to use the grounds when not in use for other activities.  Use of the arena must be booked in advance.

ECTA and the Myopia Schooling Field Trust have established the Myopia Schooling Field Fund to cover the extensive costs to maintain this publicly accessible property.  Riders and other trail users who frequent this property are encouraged to make an annual $100 tax-deductible donation to this fund.  Contributors receive a decal for their car and trailer showing their support of this program.  Donate to the Schooling Field Fund.

ECTA’s annual Run for the Trails event is held at the Schooling Field in September.
