Past winners include Olympians Michael Matz, Melanie Smith-Taylor, Leslie Howard, Conrad Homfeld, Joe Fargis, Peter Leone, Anne Kursinksi, Beezie Madden, Chris Kappler, Mario Deslauriers, Norman Dello Joio and 2011 Pan American Games Individual Gold Medalist Christine McCrea. In its formative years, the legendary Rodney Jenkins was a five-time winner of the American Gold Cup with Idle Dice, Balbucco and The Natural.

The American Gold Cup will feature a full array of jumper classes, including sections for Children and Adult Jumpers, Low and High Junior/Amateur Jumpers, plus Young Jumpers. A $25,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame Classic will take center stage on Saturday and the day will also include $10,000 NAL Classics for Children, Adults and Low Junior/Amateurs. 

Highlight events for Open Jumpers include the $7,500 Hallway Feed & KER Sport Horse Nutrition Open Jumpers on Wednesday, $10,000 1.45m Speed class on Thursday, the $50,000 American Gold Cup Qualifier on Friday, the $35,000 Double H Farm American Gold Cup Jumper Classic on Saturday and of course, Sunday’s main event, the 42nd edition of the $200,000 American Gold Cup.

This year’s event in September will be much more than an equestrian competition, but rather a family destination, offering the non-equestrian enthusiast a children’s fair, a petting zoo, live musical entertainment and a trade fair. The famous Just World International Horseless Horse Show, always an exciting attraction for children attending the event, will also be held. 

See you in September in New York!
