SILVER OAK JUMPER TOURNAMENT August 16th – 20th 2017
The 2016 version of the “rider’s horse show” lived up to all our expectations. We saw spectacular sport thanks in part to our course designers Alan Wade and Nick Granat. The feedback on the thought and quality of their tracks was significant. Their work was most frequently described as brilliant.
This special horse show was born and exists for the love of the sport of Show Jumping. It’s not driven by economics, but by a passion for attention to detail, hospitality and our love of our horses. Given that design, we simply could not exist without the support of our many sponsors.
Our admiration and gratitude to our perennial guardians Sid Wolk of Agero and Victoria McCullough of the Davis McCullough Foundation, the Grand Prix and presenting sponsors for the fourth year. To our generous sponsors; DG Ventures, Equine Record Systems, The World Equestrian Center, Dover Saddlery, Hollow Brook Wealth Management, UBS the Harvest Group, Kilkenny Equine Insurance, Stud Tree, Unicorn Landing Farm, Herb Chambers, CWD, Devoucoux, Voltaire, North Star Farm, Aliboo Farm, M&W Horses, Rood and Riddle, Shires, FarmVet, Open Minds Academy, Atlantic Equine Services, Sam Adams, Kennedy Country Gardens, Gretchen Almy Designs and Commercial Painting, and to all the numerous individuals and organizations who make The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament special.
Thank you to the owners and staff of Fieldstone Show Park for the around-the-clock 365 days a year of lavish attention and incremental improvement to this amazing equestrian facility. We are so proud to partner with you and to call Fieldstone our permanent home.
Finally, a special thank you to our athletes and owners for placing trust in us to ensure the best in jumping surfaces, jump inventory, hospitality, relaxed schedules and an atmosphere that make the week the different experience you tell us is unique. We are already hard at work planning and preparing for an even superior 2017 showcase.
