2009 Charlotte Jumper Classic, CSI 5* Available Worldwide Through Live Webcast

Charlotte, NC - April 1, 2009 - The 2009 Charlotte Jumper Classic, CSI 5* will be available for the world to see on April 10-12, 2009. Thanks to the live webcast provided by Productions East Video, equestrians and spectators will be able to access live coverage of one of the nation's most competitive horse shows from their computer.

The link to access the live webcast will be available on the main page of the Charlotte Jumper Classic website, found at http://www.charlottejumperclassic.com.

The live webcast will be available for all three competition days, which includes classes for junior/amateur jumpers and open international jumpers on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and evening, and Sunday afternoon.

Charlotte Jumper Classic President Robert Johnson noted, "People from all over the world will experience the thrill of the Charlotte Jumper Classic since the entire weekend will air over the web. We are excited to add this new feature to this year's event."

Those interested in watching can purchase the viewing per day for $24.95. The entire three-day show can be purchased for $49.95.

The Friday evening session starts at 7 p.m. and will feature a Junior/Amateur Jumper speed class and the $25,000 Charlotte Welcome Stake for International Open Jumper riders. The International Open Jumper division will feature some of the top show jumpers in the world, including members of last year's gold medal-winning Olympic team.

At 1:30 on Saturday afternoon, the International Open Jumper riders will compete in a speed class, while the Junior/Amateur Jumpers have an accumulator class.

Saturday evening's session begins at 7 p.m. and will offer two classes for International Open Jumpers, including the accumulator class and the very special Puissance class, which is a high jump competition over a wall. It has never been seen before in Charlotte and is one of only a handful of puissance classes still offered in North America.

On Sunday afternoon, spectators will be able to see the two highlight classes of the weekend. Starting at 1 p.m., Junior/Amateur Jumpers will compete in their $35,000 classic. Immediately following that, the International Open Jumpers will return for the $450,000 Grand Prix of Charlotte for the Charlotte Bobcats Cup. This class is one of the biggest purses offered in show jumping, and the competition will be electric.

Join thousands of other equestrians and spectators to watch one of the best show jumping competitions in the world and be able to say that you saw the exciting finish to the jump-off!

The Charlotte Jumper Classic is a signature fundraising event for the Bobcats Youth Foundation, which focuses on improving the lives of children and youth in the community. The Charlotte Jumper Classic will host more than 150 horses in Uptown Charlotte and features $575,000 in prize money.
