In just three short years, the Charlotte Jumper Classic has become one of the most anticipated and talked about events in the community. The three-day competition, culminating in the exciting Sunday Grand Prix finale, features the best riders from around the world, including past and present Olympians, competing for their share of a $400,000 purse. Held at the Charlotte Bobcats Arena, in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, the Charlotte Jumper Classic provides something for everyone – intense competition, fantastic entertainment for families, and a state of the art facility for riders. As an added bonus this year, the Purina Incredible Dog Team will also be performing every day! The Charlotte Jumper Classic brings the world’s elite riders, including Olympic and World Cup medalists, to Charlotte and improves the opportunities for children – “you can’t ask for a better combination that that” remarked Bob Johnson, majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, Charlotte Sting and the founder of the Charlotte Jumper Classic. “Our goal is to make this event the preeminent equestrian competition in the country.” Gosling’s Bermuda Rum is very excited to be a sponsor of this spectacular sporting event. We look forward to seeing you all during the three day event. Three Day tickets and Individual Session tickets are on sale now, as well as kids tickets for just $5.
