Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic
South Hamilton, MA-February 18, 2002-The Fidelity Investments
Jumper Classic has announced exciting changes for its 2003 edition
of what has become a tradition of top show jumping in New England.
The 14th annual Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic, which will
take place September 3-7 at the Myopia Schooling Fields, in South
Hamilton, MA, will now run two rings for competition everyday
except Grand Prix Sunday.
we're trying to do is make the days shorter and the show run smoother
without compromising any classes for exhibitors," explained
Jumper Classic Manager, Peggy Lynch. "We'll be evenly allotting
the classes to both rings because even though our second ring
will be excellent, everyone wants to get their chance in the big
ring." On Sunday, the big ring will be the focus for the
$50,000 Fidelity Investments AGA Grand Prix. "We want to
devote everything on Sunday to the featured events of the show,
most notably the Grand Prix itself," said Lynch.
exciting change for the 2003 Jumper Classic is the addition of
a Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Class for juniors and amateurs.
The Show Jumping Hall of Fame Series is held at select horse shows
throughout the country and serves as a proving ground for riders
who may aspire to someday represent the United States in international
competition. At the end of the series, a championship is awarded
for the East and West conference and the standings are used to
determine the amateur/owner and junior jumper entries for the
National Horse Show. "We're thrilled to now offer a Hall
of Fame class," said Lynch. "A class of this high caliber
fits perfectly with what we value at the Classic-top show jumping
prize list for the 2003 Fidelity Jumper Classic will be available
in late March. To reserve a copy, please email the Fidelity Investments
