Tampa Equestrian Festival's Tournament of Champions Week Announced as WCHR Qualifier

Tampa, FL - March 10, 2009 - Stadium Jumping, Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2009 Tampa Equestrian Festival's Tournament of Champions week has been selected as a qualifier for the World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) program. The Tournament of Champions is the last of three weeks of competition for the Tampa Equestrian Festival, and runs March 31-April 4, 2009, at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, FL.

The World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) awards have always been the pivotal awards program of the American Hunter-Jumper Foundation (AHJF). These awards are presented, on both a national and regional level, to Pony, Junior, Amateur, Professional, Adult and Children's hunter riders who accumulate the most points at WCHR designated horse shows throughout the year.

Each year the members of the AHJF vote to decide which horse shows will be able to participate in the program. Through this ballot, the members are asked to select shows which meet the highest standards, defined by a set of clearly defined criteria. The WCHR program has a desire to value exhibitor participation and it is through this program, that exhibitors acknowledge the effort of show management to meet high show standards. Stadium Jumping, Inc. has met those standards with the Tampa Equestrian Festival and will participate as a qualifier for the WCHR program with this year's Tournament of Champions.

The Tampa Equestrian Festival will feature three weeks of 'AA' rated hunter competition with some of the top hunter horses and riders in the nation and is set to feature a full lineup of hunter divisions, including some new additions this year. The addition of Hunter Breeding classes, as well as an expanded schedule of non-rated hunter divisions, will greatly enhance the three weeks of competition.

Stadium Jumping, Inc. would also like remind exhibitors that the closing date for entries for the 2009 Tampa Equestrian Festival has been extended to this Friday, March 13, 2009.
