The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament Recognizes Your Hard Work and Dedication Like No Other Jumper Show
As a rider of meager talents myself I have been consistently perplexed even frustrated when, on the very rare occasion I win a class or even make it into the ribbons it’s codified like I won some tiny pie eating contest at some back yard barbeque. This is hard work gang, for all involved, riders, trainers, parents, and care givers. When you succeed it’s in my view a very big deal, said Jeff Papows Founder and Chairman of the SOJT. Standing on a podium, with your peers, hanging that medal around your neck, hearing your National Anthem played, splashing the champagne, walking away with a serious hunk of crystal, a ribbon the length of your arm and a having a crowd there to take it all in is fitting tribute to the tenacity and commitment it takes to succeed at any level in the sport of Show Jumping. I can’t tell you why so many other shows don’t act in the same way but I can tell you we will bend over backwards to make your team feel like the champions they are. It’s not just a matter for our many elite athletes but for the amateur or Adult Jumper, their success is of equal significance to them and their supporters.
|The 2017 addition of the SOJT will be no different. Win the D.G. Ventures Mini Prix and drive away on a brand spanking new fully tricked out Vespa Scooter, worth several thousand dollars in addition to the significant prize money of course. The Vespa as in the case of the last five years, provided through the generous sponsorship of Herb Chambers the official Vehicle Dealer of Silver Oak. Win the Agero Grand Prix and in addition to the lion’s share of the $75,000.00 in prize money win a customized trunk, pictured here provided through the enormous talents and generous support of Top Jocks tack boxes. The protected photography, design, craftsmanship make this a keep sake you will use and take pride in for decades. Win any class the week of August 16th -20th during your stay with us and reap the richly deserved rewards and recognition. Ribbons, trophies, coolers, cash, award winning photography compliments of Andrew Ryback Photography capturing these precious moments.
