Show Information and Details

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament presented by The Davis McCullough Foundation Traverse City Horse Show Flintfields Horse Park – Williamsburg, MI 49690 September 8 – 11, 2022

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament is happy to announce the return in 2021 to our new location Traverse City, Michigan. Last years’ experience in the middle of the worst of the pandemic was exceptional. We have for this reason and in collaboration with the Morrissey Management Group, found a perfect home for The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament, 2021 once again. The SOJT, now entering its ninth consecutive year, has always endeavored to elevate the sport, the quality of service and a more gracious philosophy core to its unique operation.

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament was founded by Jeff Papows on the premise of something different, more gracious, with quality in everything from footing to course designers to relaxed schedules and hospitality being of great importance. Televised for seven years in partnership with NESN (New England Sports Network) it has done much to promote the sport.

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament is a registered 501c3 charity. Silver Oak’s support of animal rescue efforts have been a mainstay of its mission. Our award ceremonies lavishly reward our athlete’s dedication like no other event.

There will be two weeks of FEI jumping competition at Traverse City in September this year. The Silver Oak Jumping Tournament CSI 2*, September 7 – 11, 2022 followed the next week with the famed American Gold Cup CSI 4* competition.

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.

Danny & Ron’s Rescue

Danny & Ron’s Rescue speaks for helpless animals that have no voice. They began their rescue mission in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina by aiding dogs that were left homeless by the storm. Since then, their outreach has grown to heights never imagined. Now they are rescuing puppy mill dogs, bait dogs used in dog-fighting, and hundreds of dogs from shelters—often moments away from euthanasia. They currently deliver pet food and supplies to more than 48 elderly people living in poverty—and pay for their dogs’ medical bills, too. They have rescued dogs from junkyards and shelters, freed animals chained to trees and living in small cages, and saved abandoned pets living on the streets.

Danny & Ron’s Rescue is unlike any other rescue organization. Because an abused or neglected dog can only recover and learn to trust again when it is in a loving home, Danny and Ron have turned their own house into the ultimate safe haven.

The Omega Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center

The Omega Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center has placed more than 1,300 horses. Their work is not limited to one breed, and will help horses of all breeds, ponies, donkeys and mules for placement into new loving homes.   Regardless of how they arrive at Omega, by way of neglect, auction or donation, their mission remains clear and constant: Educate horse owners on the true responsibilities involved in equine care; legislate the humane treatment of horses everywhere; and find appropriate homes for unwanted, abused or neglected equines.

As part of our program to support The Omega Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, and in cooperation with our great friend McLain Ward of Castle Hill Farm, we will be using our website and social media channels to auction off numerous championship coolers McLain won and has very generously donated to The Omega Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.

“What Jeff has done with The Rider’s Horse Show, the SOJT, is truly unique and I know from firsthand experience with Jeff and participation in his show it is a labor of love.  It’s on my schedule—August 16-20, 2017.   Beyond that the fact that they support two of my favorite charities makes this very important for all of us”, said McLain Ward.

Please put us on your schedules and follow us on Facebook to get an opportunity to own a piece of our sports greatest memorabilia through the generosity of McLain Ward, and to help The Omega Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.
