Welcome to the Northampton Hunter Jumper Horse Show. AIR Show Jumping is pleased to take over the reins from Biscuit Hill Farm in producing this long running event. Over the last 28 years the staff of Biscuit Hill, John and Beth Manning, have done a phenomenal job cultivating and producing the Northampton Show. AIR Show Jumping looks to continue this quality as we usher in a new chapter of development for the Northampton Horse Show.
Three County Fair Grounds are located in the "geographical center" of New England and access to the fair grounds is convenient from all points and is a short drive from Boston, Hartford and Albany. The fair grounds has over 500 stalls in beautiful, state of the art, vented barns with 6 rings including including an indoor arena with stadium seating.
The town of Northampton is an upscale town with a unique blend of artist, farms, scholars and professionals and is the current home of Smith College. Northampton is a thriving small college town with a diverse population, a bustling night life, and many hotels and attractions appealing to all demographics. Northampton offers a lifestyle rich in cultural, artistic, academic, and business resources, with a vibrant downtown center. Northampton offers a culture rich environment with a little something for the entire family. We will endeavor to build a show schedule that will end at a reasonable hour and allow ample time to visit the many attractions that the town of North Hampton has to offer.
Our plan is to create a schedule to allow for a featured event each day. The first day of the show will conclude with the Northampton Welcome Stake in the main Jumper ring. On Friday evening, the junior riders in the equitation divisions will take center stage in the main jumper ring for the Northampton Equitation Challenge. This will be a class unique to Northampton and will test not only a rider’s abilities, but also their skill and knowledge in training. During the Equitation Challenge the riders will NOT be able to use their trainers for warming up or walking the course, so it will be a perfect setting for our trainer appreciation party under the tent. Saturday evening will feature the main event of the horse show, the $10,000 Northampton Jumper Classic. This exciting class will run concurrently with the Northampton Exhibitors Party which will have a live band, a beer and wine bar, and serve a catered dinner. On Sunday morning, the final day of the event will host the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby and a subsequent $1,000 2'6" Mini Derby.
We would love to have your barn as a list of preferred sponsors at this years Northampton Show. A preferred barn would have their name and logo featured on our scoreboard, would be listed in the show program, and receive six complimentary tickets to our exhibitors party on Saturday Evening. We would love to connect with all our trainers to provide a fun and inviting atmosphere for all of everyone, if you have any questions about the Northampton horse show please do not hesitate to ask. Please download our sponsorship packet for more information on how to support the show.
