Time to get ready for SPHT II!

It's that time of year again. March 25-27 will be a weekend for an amazing event and great parties down at SPHT II in Raeford, NC. My good friend Jane Murray has been busy helping to make this event better than  before, with 350 of this country's top riders, and thousands of dollars of prize money offered in the Advanced divisions! And like last year, it will be the inaugural event for the PRO Tour Series along with another Britches and Bling party Saturday night.

PRO will be offering cross country course walks and reaching out to spectators and owners with commentating both Saturday and Sunday. The Junior Young Rider Training scholarship award will be started here as well. There will be a special PRO event Sunday before show jumping. Please check out all the details on the PRO website so you don't miss any of these opportunities. SSG has also teamed with PRO at this event, offering money for what is called, "SSG, go low for the dough promotion." There is good money to be won in the Advanced and Intermediate divisions, so please find Samantha Lendle for further details!

What's so great about this super event is it's free for spectators, is family friendly with a Kid Zone, has a beer garden, and great food and retail vendors. While the Britches and Bling Party was so fun last year, it will be bigger this time around with a fashion show! The models will be well known riders and owners, modeling local businesses' clothing and accessories. This great party will also have incredible food and music. Get your tickets now so you don't miss this chance for a good time. Tickets are $45 per adult and $25 for children under 12. You can call the Carolina Horse Park at 910-875-2074. The festivities start at 6pm at the CHP Market Place Tent.

Also, check out the Patrons' Tent opportunities which includes delicious lunches, VIP seating at the Water Jump Tent Saturday, and ringside on Sunday for the Stadium Jumping and awards. Those tickets are $75/adult and $50/child.

SPHT II will be sporting some new jumps this year, so I added a few pics of what is to come! This event is truly amazing, and with all the new features offered this year, it should not be missed. There is guaranteed fun for everyone. See  you soon!
