Silver Oak Jumper Tournament to Host Young Jumper Championships Eastern League Finals

Young Jumper Championships Eastern League Final
August 16-20, 2017 – Halifax, MA

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament announced today that the 2017 Young Jumper Championships Eastern League Final will join the line-up August 16-20, 2017. Always a big supporter of the YJC and programs to develop young jumpers in this country, we were honored to be selected by the YJC organization to host the finals.

“We are excited to be part of this great horse show,” said YJC spokesperson, Cheryll Frank. “Silver Oak is routinely ranked among the best horse shows in the country. Jeff Papows and his team have done a superlative job building this event. Their attention to every detail of the competition experience-for both horses and riders-results in a world-class event, from course design to footing to a relaxing show schedule. If that isn’t all, their tremendous engagement with the community and the promotional opportunities they provide for corporate sponsors are unparalleled.”

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament will host the Finals for 5, 6 and 7-year-olds, as well as the Young Jumper 4-Year-Old Futurity.

“As a passionate promoter of our wonderful sport of Show Jumping, I have through my book, “Unbridled Passion”, horse show, and very meager amateur riding, endeavored to make a contribution.  Our sponsors in this case notably World Equestrian Center and North Star Farms have made our support of the Young Jumper program possible for years now.  Being entrusted this way with the YJC finals is an honor we are very proud of and we will as always endeavor in every way to reward all involved.”, said Jeff Papows SOJT”

The Young Jumper Championships was founded in 1988 to promote the breeding and development of young show jumping horses in the U.S., with the goal of producing horses competitive at the international level. Since then, numerous program graduates have gone on to compete in Olympic Games, Pan American Games, World Championships, Nations Cups, and World Cups, etc., on the teams of over a dozen countries in addition to the United States.

Each year the Young Jumper Championships offers over 520 qualifiers nationwide, culminating in three Finals in the Eastern, Midwestern and Western Leagues for 5, 6 and 7-year-old horses. In addition, three Young Jumper Futurity Regionals are offered for 4-year-olds nominated to the program.
