Aug. 22, 2014 — Celebrating 30 years in 2014, NESN, New England’s most watched sports network, continues to look for distinctive New England based events to cover. On Sunday, August 24 at 8:00 pm, NESN will air the 2014 Silver Oak Jumper Tournament, New England’s premier competitive show jumping event which was ranked the 13th best horse show in North America by the North American Riders Group (NARG).
The $75,000 Agero Grand Prix was held in Halifax, Massachusetts on Sunday, August 17 and NESN was on-hand to capture the action. The main event featured many of the best riders in the world including defending champion Paul O’Shea of Ireland and one of the hottest riders on the Grand Prix circuit Kevin Babington.
“Silver Oak Jumper Tournament looks forward to this new partnership with NESN,” said Jeff Papows, Silver Oak Jumper Tournament Chairman and CEO. “We are excited about producing this television event and bringing it to a wider audience that would otherwise not be able to personally enjoy this show. We are also looking forward to 2015, bringing many fans to our sport and to NESN.”
