JustWorld International Partners With 2012 American Gold Cup

North Salem, NY – September 12, 2012 – This year’s American Gold Cup, underway now and running through Sunday at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, NY, features as one of its beneficiaries, JustWorld International. A number of very special JustWorld activities will be highlighted throughout the weekend.

JustWorld International works through the international equestrian community and its extensive networks to fund and sustain programs that provide basic needs to children with little opportunity to receive support from other sources. While many nonprofit organizations focus primarily on providing short-term assistance to developing countries, JustWorld’s goals are long-term, focusing its efforts on some of the poorest communities in countries such as Honduras, Cambodia, Guatemala, and Brazil, where public education is limited or inaccessible, threatening many children’s chances for productive lives.

The American Gold Cup will be another excellent chance for JustWorld to raise much needed funding for these tremendously worthwhile causes.

The festivities start on Friday night with the JustWorld International Cocktail Party, sponsored by OnlyJumpers Auctions at the Old Salem Farm clubhouse. The party starts at 5 p.m. and features the always popular Maureen Hamill and friends entertaining the crowd. Those in attendance will also get an advance preview of the horses that will be sold in the Saturday OnlyJumper Auction. There will be drawings for fabulous prizes on Friday night as well.

On Saturday, the OnlyJumper Auction gets underway at 5 p.m. at the Old Salem Farm Indoor Arena and Clubhouse. Stadium Jumping Inc. and the American Gold Cup will be generously donating a percentage of the total auction sales to JustWorld. In addition, Juan Pablo Gnecco, organizer of the OnlyJumper Auction, will be donating one hundred percent of bids from auction of two adorable miniature horses, Sebastian and Sancho. Everyone is invited to visit these sweet Palominos at the show, prior to the auction.

Then on Sunday, the JustWorld International Horseless Horse Show, sponsored by Today's Equestrian Magazine, takes place prior to the start of the American Gold Cup on the Old Salem Grand Prix field. There are classes for all ages with an entry fee of $15, with the proceeds benefitting JustWorld International. The show is organized by Gabby Hero and the OSF Ambassador Committee and entries can be made at the horse show office.

JustWorld International’s Rider Ambassadors raise awareness and funds for their programs. Because of these Ambassadors, JustWorld supporters learn about the needs of others across the globe as they give thousands of children a leg up to a brighter future.

This year’s American Gold Cup has been designated an FEI CSI 4*-W, East Coast League World Cup qualifying event for the 2012/2013 show jumping season.

With over $30 million dollars in improvements, Old Salem Farm, in New York’s Westchester County, is a premier equestrian venue, offering state-of-the-art facilities, surrounded by 120 gorgeous acres.

The American Gold Cup will feature a full array of jumper classes, including sections for Children and Adult Jumpers, Low and High Junior/Amateur Jumpers, plus Young Jumpers. A $25,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame Classic will take center stage on Saturday and the day will also include $10,000 NAL Classics for Children, Adults and Low Junior/Amateurs.

Highlight events for Open Jumpers include the $7,500 Hallway Feed & KER Sport Horse Nutrition Open Jumpers on Wednesday, $10,000 Danbury Porsche 1.45m Speed class on Thursday, the $50,000 American Gold Cup Qualifier on Friday, the $35,000 Double H Farm American Gold Cup Jumper Classic on Saturday and of course, Sunday’s main event, the 42nd edition of the $200,000 American Gold Cup.

This year’s event in September will be much more than an equestrian competition, but rather a family destination, offering the non-equestrian enthusiast a children’s fair, a petting zoo, live musical entertainment and a trade fair. The famous Just World International Horseless Horse Show, always an exciting attraction for children attending the event, will also be held.

The official prize list for this year’s event is now available on line at: www.stadiumjumping.com and www.theamericangoldcup.com
