Become A Vendor
Dear Trainers, Exhibitors and Owners
We would first like to thank the Morrissey Management Group, our partners in the production that is the Silver Oak Jumper Tournament, for such a fantastic venue and so much professionalism. This is our third year, and all have been a pleasure. The care and their attention to detail is amazing. It’s stunning when an organization cares this deeply and they do.
Second, to our Sponsors, most of whom have been with us for a decade now. Without your support and involvement, the sport would be something less, and the charitable platform that the SOJT represents would simply cease to exist.
To our title sponsor Victoria McCullough and the Davis McCullough Foundation, to the Wolk family and Agero Corporation our undying gratitude. Let me add congratulations to Victoria who concurrent to our week, collected so many notable championships with her precious Clydesdale hitches.
To the many sponsors who support our athletes, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospitals, Stud Tree, Platinum Performance, Next One Equestrian and our official realtor Jeremy Greene of the Corcoran Group. Thank You.
To Cynthia Keating and GGT Footing the sport’s best educated and passionate executive and the best surface our beloved partners can travel on. To EquiFit and Alexandra Cherubini, and to the Robert’s family and World Equestrian Center. Thank you.
We have to thank the Dalman Jump Company, the best there is, to JR Hudson Horse Transport, to Danny & Ron’s dog rescue and the Omega Horse Rescue organizations. Thank You. To Julien and Next One Equestrian who sponsored our fabulous Maddie Conty who sings beautifully throughout the week.
Finally, to all the athletes who were so gracious, competitive, prepared, and excited to be with us. A very special tribute to the participants in the “Babington Benefit Classic” these past years and looking forward to 2022. For what that means to Kevin and to his recovery. Thank You.
Our work on behalf of the Babington Foundation, and animal rescues continues as it is a year- round effort and planning for an even more spectacular event is underway for 2022.
The Kevin Babington Foundation Benefit & Auction
Victoria McCullough will be hosting at her Mida Farm on February 22, 2022, a benefit for the Kevin Babington Foundation. Details are below:
- An inviting 1.45m Grand Prix will run from 10:00 – 2:00 PM on Victoria’s world-class grass field. A nominal entry fee will be charged to the first eighty registrants (80) which will go directly to the Foundation.
- There will be a silent auction with many unique items such as a guitar signed by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and a luxury sky box with catering at a Boston Bruins game accommodating 21 guests—just to name a few.
- There will be opportunities for rides on Victoria’s world-class Clydesdale hitch along with photography to remember the experience.
- There will be a reception hosted by Victoria at Mida Farm, to benefit The Foundation, and allow all athletes and guests to share in the auction.
Update: Jonathon Millar’s Recover
As we all begin our summer plans, we did receive an update on Jonathon Millar’s progress. Below is an update directly from his wife Kelly:
Jumper Bridle Elite will donate profits from these items to the Kevin Babington Foundation in 2023
As a service to all my friends in the sport I’ve also found a manufacturers who produces and prices these fastidious works of art without requiring a big outlay of dollars.

501c3 Non Profit
From the founding of the Silver Oak Jumper Tournament, we have endeavored to support important charitable organizations. Historically the MSPCA, various therapeutic riding programs and children’s charities that benefit those who are seriously ill. In October of 2016, after a long and appropriately tedious application process, we have now been named a registered 501 (c) (3).
This has serious tax advantages for our numerous and critical sponsors without whom we could not put on an event of this magnitude. As “The Rider’s Horse Show” we want you to enjoy not just top sport, but the good feeling that comes from supporting an organization designed to do good things.
We are happy to announce today that we will be supporting Danny & Ron’s Rescue, and The Omega Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. This dove tails perfectly with the magnificent efforts of our perennial presenting sponsor, Victoria McCullough of the Davis McCullough foundation, who is singularly responsible for thousands of rescues and adoptions of horses otherwise destined for slaughter, and spearheading government efforts that have effectively banned horse slaughter in this country.
“The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament is one of the Nation’s top jumper shows, complete with attention to detail, quality at every turn and top sport. It could easily be renamed the” Silver Heart Jumper Tournament, and I’m so proud to be involved. These are my very favorite charities,” said Victoria McCullough Chairwoman, Chesapeake Oil, and Chair of the Davis McCullough philanthropic foundation.
