The Jumper Classic

Mark Your Calendars!

Coming soon to their new home at Maplecroft Farm in Ipswich, Massachusetts, is the 2013 Jumper Classic®. This premier social sporting event — and one of New England’s only Show Jumping competitions — will take place Wednesday, July 10 through Sunday, July 14.

This exciting event showcases the top national and international equestrians. Throughout five days of competition, the level of difficulty increases as the jumps become both higher and wider.

The weekend features the two most spectacular days of the show when thousands of spectators come to enjoy the high stakes action. Saturday is Family Day where children 13 and under are admitted for free, while Sunday presents the exciting culmination of the show — the $50,000 Grand Prix Competition.

$50,000 Grand Prix Competition

As described on the Jumper Classic website…

“The day begins with the spectacular Opening Ceremonies featuring a skydiving performances during the singing of the National Anthem and musical entertainment. For VIP guests, the traditional Ladies’ Hat Contest is always a favorite event, and winners are presented with special prizes. All guests enjoy the atmosphere of a day in the country on the beautifully groomed show grounds and everyone has a ringside view of the show jumping competition on the Grand Prix field.

General Admission provides Open-Field seating only. Please bring your own seating and protection from the elements, i.e.: chairs and umbrellas etc. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from vendors at the event. Durable and comfortable footwear is also suggested. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.”
