Skillman, NJ - August 18, 2014 - Princeton Show Jumping will host a National Level Young Jumper Championship for 5, 6 and 7/8 year olds on Sept. 17 - 20, 2014. Offering $50,000 in prize money, the competition will be held in three rounds over four days at Princeton Show Jumping's new 110 acre, state of the art show facility located six miles from the center of Princeton.
 
The $50,000 Princeton Young Jumper Championships will mimic, in both format and excitement, the FEI Young Horse Championship held each fall in Lanaken, Belgium. World-renowned FEI 4 star Course Designer Alan Wade of Ireland will design the courses for this important event.

The three-day championships will award substantial prize money to the top ten in each age group. Breeder recognition awards and a special prize for U.S. bred horses will bring much needed awareness to the breeding, production and training of show jumping sport horses here in the United States.
