The Perfect Setting for the Up and Coming Jumper Contenders
A talented field of young jumpers competed over the course of three days in the young jumper championships qualifier at the Silver Oak Jumper Tournament.

The young jumpers ranged in age from 4 to 7 years old with the 6 year olds jumping at heights of 1.20-1.25m and 7 year olds clearing 1.30-1.35m fences – both age groups eligible for the division championships.
