Fieldstone Show Park, New England's premier equestrian show jumping facility in Halifax, MA, will host two weeks of Olympic-caliber show jumping at the upcoming 2012 Summer Showcase, taking place August 15 - 19 and 21 - 25.
This year, renowned equestrians from across the country will compete for over $250,000 in prize money over the course of ten days. Local stars like Dr. Jeffrey Papows, award-winning author of Unbridled Passion, and Charlie Jacobs, principle of the Boston Bruins, will be among those competing at the August event.
As a supporting partner of the Wounded Warrior Project and Children's Wish Foundation International, Fieldstone will also host several fundraising events at the Summer Showcase. These events include a Grand Prix Calcutta, where spectators can wager to secure exclusive bets on their favorite horses, a silent charity auction, featuring a Bruins game jersey signed by the 2012 Boston Bruins team, and a puppy-kissing booth to benefit the local Blue Dog Shelter of Brockton, MA.
Grand Prix level show jumping represents the highest tier of equestrian competition and demands the most skilled equine and human athletes. Fieldstone Show Park proudly offers two Grand Prix level events during the Summer Showcase, including a $35,000 competition on August 18th and a $25,000 competition on August 25th.
There will be no lack of excitement for friends and family at the Show Park in August as the Summer Showcase will also feature live performances of the national anthem, a demonstration by the Official Color Guard of Vermont and a Canine Puissance, or high jump competition, open to all attendees.
