 Bradenton, FL - March 4, 2014 - Stadium Jumping announced today that Equestrian Connect, the one minute entry service, is now its official entry partner for the Tampa Bay Classic, Tournament of Champions, the American Invitational, and the American Gold Cup Horse Shows.

Stadium Jumping Management encourages its exhibitors to submit their entries online through Equestrian Connect.  Michael Morrissey commented, "With Equestrian Connect as a partner, we offer our exhibitors the convenience of submitting their entries online. We have seen the demand for this convenience grow and are committed to offering the absolute best services to our exhibitors,"

Equestrian Connect is a web service for completing hunter/jumper entry forms online. The company posts entry forms for over 600 horse shows in North America, with over one third accepting entries submitted electronically.  The service is quickly becoming the best way for equestrians to submit their online entries. Top horsemen from around the country have been going to Equestrian Connect to save time and keep their information organized.

Don Stewart, of Don Stewart Stables, has used Equestrian Connect for over a year now.  "We count on the service for all our entries, either print and mail the old fashioned way, or online for the shows that accept entries electronically.  I'm thrilled that Stadium Jumping now accepts them online.  Last year, we brought 20 horses to the Tampa Bay Classic. It will save me a lot of time to submit those entries electronically," he said.

Barbara Phillips, co-founder or Equestrian Connect, commented, "We are delighted to be working closely with Stadium Jumping. Our goal is to partner with the best horse shows in the country to provide exhibitors the convenience of online entries."

Equestrian Connect has been offering hunter/jumper exhibitors a fast and convenient web service since the fall of 2009.   Exhibitors store their data once in Equestrian Connect and use it to automatically complete entry forms for over 600 USEF A/AA horse shows in North America.  The service is available for a free 45 day trial.  For more information go to
