2021 Traverse City Horse Shows Welcomes Back Silver Oak Jumper Tournament

Traverse City, Mich. – Dec. 4, 2020 – Looking ahead to the 2021 show season, the management team at Traverse City Horse Shows is pleased to announce the return of the Silver Oak Jumper Tournament, presented by the Davis McCullough Foundation, to Flintfields Horse Park. Now featuring FEI CSI3* competition, the 2021 Silver Oak Jumper Tournament is set to take place September 8-12, running adjacent to the 2021 American Gold Cup, presented by CaptiveOne Advisors. The upcoming Silver Oak Jumper Tournament will boast exciting international competition and even more prize money up for grabs!

The Silver Oak Jumper Tournament was founded eight years ago by Jeff Papows and is a registered 501(c)(3) charity that supports animal rescue efforts. The 2020 season marked the event’s inaugural move to Traverse City, Michigan, home of the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival, presented by CaptiveOne Advisors, American Gold Cup, Traverse City Spring Horse Show, presented by Turtle Creek Hotel & Casino, the FEI North American Youth Championship and the USHJA Zone 5 Team/Platinum Jumper Championship. Highlight events at this year’s Silver Oak Jumper Tournament include the $37,700 GGT Footing Welcome Stake, the $37,700 Speed Classic, as well as the $139,500 Agero Grand Prix.

“Working with the Morrissey Management Group has been utopian, the level of professionalism, a demeanor consistent both with my desire to promote the sport and the charitable nature of Silver Oak’s philanthropic platform. It was the missing element in years of work creating something special now truly embraced by the right facility and management philosophy,” said Jeff Papows, PhD.
