The 2018 Event

Returning this year is the Welcome Jumper Stakes with added prize money totaling $10,000 as well as the USHJA sanctioned International Hunter Derby. ‘Jump for the Children’ II will host a USHJA-sanctioned National Hunter Derby. Both shows will run classes all day each day in two different rings with varied levels of fence heights and skill levels for riders of all ages, both amateurs and professionals.

The ‘Jump for the Children’ Horse Show is thrilled to have some of the very best tack stores in North Carolina and surrounding areas. But, if shopping for the horse enthusiast is not your thing, there are many other vendors offering everything from accessories, clothing, pottery, artwork, and even more.  And don’t forget about the ‘Jump for the Children’ Silent Auction. All money collected from the silent auction goes directly to Duke Children’s.
