The results are out and those who have qualified for the National Classic Equitation Finals have been notified! The prestigious year-end equitation finals highlighting the up and coming riders in show jumping will be held Friday and Saturday during Week II of the Atlanta Fall Classic. Spectators and trainers will be treated to a complimentary ringside buffet during the evening competition. Winners will receive a beautiful championship jacket in addition to a cooler and ribbons.

“Hosting this Finals event for the up and coming riders here at the International Horse Park and home to the 1996 Olympic Games makes this event very special for all of us,” said Classic Company President, Bob Bell. “Many of these riders will go on to professional careers in the equine industry and who knows, maybe one of the National Classic Equitation Finals qualifiers will make the Olympic team one day!” he said.

The Atlanta Fall Classic attracts riders from all over the country because of the international, Olympic venue and the Classic Company’s hallmark blue ribbon service. From the jumper ring to the short stirrup arena, each competition ring is highly decorated and staffed with top-notch, friendly professional show staff.

Held at the Georgia International Horse Park, home to the 1996 Olympics, riders have the opportunity to compete in the Olympic arena and ride for some of the top prize money offered this fall. With more than 300,000 in prize money offered, world-class stabling and arenas, top show management staff and a division for everyone in your barn, there is no better place to be in November.

The $45,000 Cedar Street Advisors Grand Prix kicks off the high-stakes action Week I and the $45,000 EMO Grand Prix wraps up the two weeks of top show competition.

Both weeks I and II offer $10,000 Welcome Class and the $1,500 Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic.

Week II raises the cash bar and offers the $10,000 NHJL Junior/AO 1.40 meter class and the meter 1.15 $10,000 NAL Children’s/Adult Jumper Classic.
