World Class Week of Jumping
Ox Ridge Horse Show & Silver Oak Jumper Tournament: 6/8-6/14 2020
Dear Trainers, Exhibitors and Owners:
This year will mark the eighth running of the Silver Oak Jumper Tournament and the first year at our new
home at Ox Ridge. While we are on the subject of longevity, this year marks more than a hundred years of
top horse shows at historic Ox Ridge. Ox Ridge is one of a small handful of shows designated as historic.
As always, our combined focus will be on a more gracious customer centric experience. What do we mean
by that, well quite simply it’s a mindset where exhibitors are customers and treated right. It’s a focus on
footing, schedules, the world’s best course designers, awards, hospitality and entertainment. In short,
something different. The pivotal items that earned us numerous NARG Top 25 awards. Our goal is to have
every horse and rider leave with memories of the most positive experience of their outdoor season.
This is a Jumper only show, so less strain for our trainers and busy professionals. The show runs for six
days from Tuesday through Sunday to make it possible for professionals to get students horses in the rings
and acclimated on Tuesday with less rush and fuss. This taxonomy will maximize the use of the beautiful
property at Ox Ridge and allow for more relaxed schedules with shorter days. With the new location
offering greater proximity to a good number of our top Jumper riders, we are once again able to best serve
you and honor the incredible commitment indicative of every farm and rider in this sport. So, join us June
9 – 14, 2020. The class schedule is of course laid out in detail here and available as a single PDF on www.
silveroakjumpertournament.com under the rider info tab.
Lastly, the major classes on the weekend will be live streamed this year through a partnership with the
professionals at ShowNet. None other than Kevin Babington and Frank Madden will partner to provide
their expert analysis and the color that will make this a help to everybody.
