The Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show & The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament Combine Forces June 8 – 14, 2020
The management of The Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show and The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament have decided to merge the two events. We are happy to announce that the June 2020 Show will be a combined event—The Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show and The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament—taking place at Ox Ridge. Upon reflection, we have very logically determined our ideologies, wishes and desires for the sport are very closely aligned.
The Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show organization has long hosted a historical horse show since 1926. In 2019 the Ox Ridge Charity Horse Show has been designated as an UESF Heritage Competition”. Ox Ridge, the property has just undergone a multimillion-dollar expansion to include new rings, club house and amenities not common to any other property.
The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament was founded eight years ago by Jeff Papows on the premise of something different, more gracious, with quality in everything from footing to course designers to relaxed schedules and hospitality being of great importance. It has many times been recognized by the NARG, (North American Riders Group), as one of the country’s finest jumper shows. Televised for seven years now in partnership with NESN (New England Sports Network) it has done much to promote the sport.
Both organizations are registered 501c3 charities. Silver Oak’s support of animal rescue efforts have been a mainstay of its mission as has been the case at Ox Ridge. There is almost a cosmic justice to this marriage.
“I have shown there for years and realized not only is it located closer to many of our International athletes, but more important; their management philosophies and mine are wildly simpatico. I’ve so enjoyed my time there as a competitor, and the place is just beautiful and at the same time very intimate. I was blown away last year with all the property improvements. I have learned that working with nice people of a common mindset, is key to motivating everybody involved, which is the reason for the move”, said Jeff Papows.
“We at Ox Ridge have long admired the great production value, National acclaim, quality, and great reviews of the Silver Oak product. The heart and soul of something designed for riders by riders and in support of the animals we all love, it’s perfect.” said Flavia Callari, member of the Ox Ridge Show Committee.
