Princeton Show Jumping

SKILLMAN, N.J.--Princeton Show Jumping Horse Shows have been shut down by the state of New Jersey, nothing to do with Covid-19, in an action that should scare exhibitors in every state.

And if states can close down horse shows, they might expand that to include other equestrian ventures, including dressage and eventing, rodeos and even racing.

So everyone should take this attack on equestrian activities very seriously and contact their state representatives. Princeton Show Jumping's statement about this closure, which is below, includes the names and contacts for New Jersey politicians.

 

STATEMENT FROM PRINCETON SHOW JUMPING

The New Jersey State Agriculture Development Committee following the recommendation of Montgomery Twp., has decided not to grant Hunter Farms permission to run Princeton Show Jumping's 4 week Fall horse show series Sept. 16 - Oct. 11, 2020 in Montgomery Twp./Skillman, NJ.

This is not Covid-19 related.

It is because Montgomery Township believes horse shows are not agriculture.

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, with record cancellations of horse shows state and nationwide, Hunter Farms and Princeton Show Jumping's horse shows have been providing the opportunity for equestrian sport and business to continue with top shows at the region's best show facility.

Farm owners, horse breeders, trainers, instructors, grooms, blacksmiths, equine veterinarians, feed suppliers, hay farmers, and equine supply dealers all depend on these competitions to support their businesses and provide for their families.

Based on the pandemic's economic realities and its effect on New Jersey's Agriculture, this is the worst possible time not approve these competitions at Hunter Farms in Skillman.

It would be wonderful if you will show your support for Hunter Farms and Princeton Show Jumping by calling, letter writing, posting on social media respectfully expressing what the Horse Shows at Hunter Farms North mean to you personally and/or to your business.

We ask that you call and email Secretary Fischer (Please copy Governor Phil Murphy, Mayor of Montgomery Township Sadaf Jaffer and The Montgomery Twp. Committee, and Princeton Show Jumping.)
