NEW LOCATION & SHOW DATES: Maplecroft Farm, Ipswich, Massachusetts, July 10-14, 2013
Tickets go on sale March 26th for New England's world class international equestrian show jumping event, The Jumper Classic®, Presented by Audi of America. The nation’s top horses and riders headlining the exciting Olympic sport of show jumping returns to the North Shore of Boston and will be held at Maplecroft Farm in Ipswich from Wednesday, July 10th through Sunday, July 14, 2013.
The Matutes may have broken a record by qualifying for The Nations Cup CDIO3* in Dressage to be held in Wellington on April 13-15, 2013 as a family. Juan Matute, the father of all the other riders on the team representing Spain, is no stranger to International Competition having represented Spain in Three Olympic Games. Joined by two of his three talented children who ride dressage and his wife Maria who rounds out the team as Chef d'equipe, Juan and his family will most certainly make Spain the most popular team at the event. It is believed to be the first time any family has represented their country in a Nations Cup Dressage competition.
The Homes for Horses Coalition, Representing Equine Rescues and Sanctuaries across the Nation, Supports the Safeguard American Food Exports Act
Story Via: Stephanie Twinning
The Homes for Horses Coalition, representing the nation’s horse rescue community, applauds U.S. Sens. Mary Landrieu, D-La., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Reps. Patrick Meehan, R-Pa., and Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., for introducing the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act (S. 541 and H.R. 1094), and urges its swift passage. The bipartisan legislation would stop the inhumane killing of American horses for human consumption and prohibit the transport of horses across the U.S. border for slaughter in Canada and Mexico.
Story Via: The Jumper Classic
The Jumper Classic looks forward to a new year and a new venue in 2013, and we hope you will join us once again as we return to our roots in the Hamilton-Ipswich area of Massachusetts.
We have worked diligently to secure a new location and are very excited to be returning to our roots on the North Shore of Boston. As you are all aware, we are known for hosting one of the best equestrian event in New England. However, this past year proved to be particularly difficult with our past host, the Silver Oak Equestrian Center, where we held the show for the last five years.
