Silver Oak Jumper Tournament in Keeping with its mantra to limit entries for the most utopian experience is officially sold out once again for 2017
In keeping with our manic attention to the quality of your experience and as predicted we have sold out for 2017.
Now clearly one of North America’s largest Jumper Only shows true to our word we have stopped accepting entries
It’s unfortunate and I know unusual, given the typical horse show’s understandable profit motives but we have been forced to turn away numerous entries over the past twenty four hours. The quality of footing, in particular the condition of the beautiful grass Grand Prix Field is our number one concern. Secondly, the integrity of more relaxed daily schedules ending with ample time to explore the sea coast and numerous fabulous restaurants drove us again to ignore the monetary incentive and close entries. “It breaks my heart to say no to people, truly, but I would be more troubled if we impacted people’s experience, it’s called the rider’s horse show for a reason, said Jeff Papows the show’s founder and Chairman.”
My sincerest apologies to those we couldn’t accommodate. My deepest gratitude for those who entrusted their time and wonderful horses to our care and facility and who will be with us for this our fifth year and first as a Federal 501c3 not for profit. Rest assured we have worked feverishly down to every small detail, purchased an expanded jump inventory with more than twenty new world class jumps, and we are very excited with the depth and quality of the star studded field of Grand Prix athletes, horses and staffs who will be in attendance. For all within a reasonable distance reading this remember admission is free and opening ceremonies are at 10:30 EST on Sunday August 20th, all are welcome.
