Enter to Win a Grand Prix Course Walk with Olympic Team Gold and Individual Silver Medalist Chris Kappler
South Hamilton, MA - May 31, 2006 – Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic is excited to announce today that online ticket sales will be available on June 1, 2006. To encourage spectators to purchase tickets online, The Jumper Classic has come up with an exciting incentive. All participants who purchase tickets online between June 1st and August 5th will be entered to win an opportunity to walk the grand prix course with Olympian Chris Kappler.
Kappler has competed at The Jumper Classic for several years and also trains several amateur riders who will be competing at the show. The winner from the ticket drawing will get an opportunity to hear Kappler’s approach to riding the course. The lucky winner will discuss first hand how the Richard Jeffery- designed course adapts to each horse and rider.
Chris Kappler is one of the most celebrated equestrian athletes in Show Jumping history, and the Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic looks forward to his attendance at the competition every year. As one of the world’s top grand prix riders, Chris Kappler is always a crowd favorite during the $75,000 Fidelity Investments Grand Prix.
Kappler’s many notable achievements include a bye onto the 2004 Olympic Team. The trust paid off for the United States Show Jumping Team when Kappler helped his teammates Beezie Madden, McLain Ward, and Peter Wylde claim the first Team Gold Medal for the U.S. since 1984. Kappler also took home the Individual Silver Medal.
“The Jumper Classic was kind enough to give me a really nice trophy,” stated Kappler humbly. “They honored our US Show Jumping Team’s result in the Olympics and my performance for the team. The show is extremely supportive of our sport on all levels, and showing there is always a great experience. Offering a lucky winner a tour around the course is just a small way that I can give back to the people that have honored me so greatly.”
