Christine Miller and Rolando K Win Opening Class at Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic

South Hamilton, MA – September 7, 2006 – There was a full day of showing at the Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic in Grass Ring 2, as beautiful weather and friendly horse show management welcomed exhibitors to the seventeenth edition of this all- jumper show on the North Shore.

Richard Jeffery of Bournemouth, England designed the courses, assisted by Marc Donovan of Southern Pines, NC. This is the seventh year that Jeffery has designed the tracks, but it is the first for Donovan whose background is primarily in Three Day Eventing.

Grass Ring 2, set in the picturesque center of the Myopia Hunt Club, is surrounded by old shade trees. The first class was a Level 3, Table II Sec 2(b) with 38 entries. The second class was a $500 Level 4, Table II, Sec 1 with 26 entries.

The $1,000 Masters Class was open to amateur riders over the age of 35, who are not competing in classes over 3’9” at the Fidelity Investment Jumper Classic. There were 17 adult entries in the Level 4, Table II, Sec 2(b) sponsored by the World . Donald Little the Founder of the Jumper Classic and Jeffrey Papows the event’s Chairman both competed and placed in the first class of the division. “I got involved with this event six years ago because I really wanted it to survive,” Papows said. “I have three horses showing this week,” he explained. “I have owned my horse Roxette for seven years and she is like a member of my family. She had a fever once and I slept in her stall for three nights. My wife thinks I’m totally crazy,” he laughed.

Local equestrian Christine Miller rode Rolando K to victory with two clear jumping rounds and a blazing jump-off time of 37.823 seconds. “I will be showing in the Masters division all week,” Miller said. “I live and ride in Amesbury, MA with my husband Bobby Shea. I like the old fashioned feeling of this show. It is great to compete on grass. I know it is a lot of work to keep up a turf ring, but it is worth it” she explained.
