Halifax, MA - The 2014 Silver Oak Jumper Tournament is just a couple of days away as it debuts at the Fieldstone Show Park in Halifax. The venue at Fieldstone is just 34 miles south of Boston, and an hour south of Hampton Falls, site of last year's tournament. The facility is located at 21 Plymouth Street. Halifax, MA 02338
This year's show will run from August 13 - 17, 2014.
The all jumper show will feature two rings of action each day. The event offers divisions for children, adults, juniors and amateurs in addition to the big money international open jumper division.
The main event is the inaugural $75,000 Agero Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon. Earlier on Sunday, the show will get underway with the $15,000 DG Ventures Mini Prix beginning at 11 a.m.
The Silver Oak Tournament has reached a coverage agreement with NESN. As a result of this landmark agreement, there will be a featured broadcast, "World Class Show Jumping in New England," a program featuring The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament and its horses and riders. The program will air at 4:30pm on Saturday, August 23rd, immediately following the conclusion of Red Sox postgame coverage.
"This is something every organizer only hopes to achieve, big-time TV coverage of an equestrian event," said Show Chairman Jeffery Papows. "It is always hard for equestrianism to break through the mainstream sports' lock on programming to find any airtime. We are thrilled that this agreement with NESN will not only secure broadcast time for our featured event, the $75,000 Agero Grand Prix, but will also offer some wonderful pre-event coverage as well."
Also on the agenda, and of interest to the media, is the popular Saturday Meet and Greet Autograph and Q&A session with Show Chairman, Jeff Papows and a number of the show's top competitors. Sponsored by Dover Saddlery, every child in attendance at 4:30 p.m. will receive a free copy of the popular book "Unbridled Passion" authored by Papows. Refreshments will be available and we expect as always a lively 90 minute session.
