The Fieldstone Spring Festival will mark the beginning of top competition from May 15 - 19, 2013, at the Fieldstone Show Park in Halifax, MA. Jumper highlights include the $25,000 Fieldstone Grand Prix, the $7,500 Open Speed Derby and the $7,500 Welcome Stake. All of these distinguished classes will take place on the all-grass Grand Prix field. Last year, Jean Sheptoff rode Ami Des Gemmes to the top of the $25,000 Fieldstone Grand Prix leader board, taking home the lion's share of the prize money. The distinguished class offers the eligibility for riders to be included in the Rolex/USEF Show Jumping Ranking List.
The jumpers will also have the chance to showcase their mounts during the Open Jumper sections, as well as the 5,6 & 7/8 Year Old Young Jumpers. Junior and Amateur-Owner Jumpers will take their turn against the clock in the Grand Prix Ring, striving to take the top award in the $5,000 High Junior/Amateur-Owner Show Jumping Hall of Fame (SJHOF) Jumper Classic and the $3,000 Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic. The Children's/Adult Jumpers will work throughout the week to ride to the top of the leader board during the $2,500 Children's/Adult Jumper Classic.
The week of premier hunter showing will include the $10,000 3'3" Hunter Derby, the $2,500 2'9" Hunter Derby and the $2,500 Pony Classic. These classes will offer hunter riders the chance to compete on the grass field, showcasing their talents with their mounts. The derbies will be reminiscent of a hunt field with natural fences and shrubbery. Professionals, juniors and amateurs alike are welcome to compete.
Twenty-seven years ago, the Fieldstone Show Park was built to accommodate one-day horse shows. As time went by, the demand and focus of Fieldstone shifted to multi-day events. During the fall and winter of 2012, the Fieldstone Show Park started an ambitious two-year reconstruction project. These improvements include The Vendor Village, raised VIP Pavilion and Trainer/Rider Pavilion, a 16-foot high stone lighthouse created for videotaping the Grand Prix Field, as well as stabling, footing, infrastructure and competition coordination improvement.
