BET To Sponsor USAE National Junior Jumper Championships

BET (Black Entertainment Television) has signed on to become the sponsor of the BET/USAE National Junior Jumper Championships for the 8th consecutive year. The event will be held at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg, PA, Oct 9 – 11.

The BET/USAE National Junior Jumper Championship is considered a USA Junior Olympic-Equestrian Event and as such, the top three teams will receive Gold, Silver and Bronze Junior Olympic Medals. The name of the winning team will be inscribed on the Frances Newbill Rowe Memorial Trophy, named in honor of the top jumper trainer of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

In 2002 the BET/USAE Prix de States Team Championship title went to Zone 4 (AL, FL, GA, MS, SC, TN). The winning team was made up of Michael Morrissey of Bradenton, FL, riding Gera 28 (Holsteiner: Calando I x Larsa), Jennifer Urioste of Wellington, FL, riding Casanova, Erin Stewart of Ocala, FL, riding Karat (American Sport Horse: Artos x Riviera Z) and Derek Braun of Ocala, FL, riding Mandella. Morrissey also won the individual title.
