Stadium Jumping to Manage Southeast Medal Finals with James Lala

Jacksonville, FL – May 25, 2014 – James Lala is pleased to announce that world-class show management organization, Stadium Jumping, Inc., has been contracted to help produce this year’s popular Jacksonville championship competition, Southeast Medal Finals. Stadium Jumping, led by Michael Morrissey, has been the producer of such groundbreaking and iconic show jumping events as the American Invitational, The American Gold Cup, World Cup Finals, Olympic Games Show Jumping Selection Trials, FEI World Equestrian Games Selection Trials and the Winter Equestrian Festival.

“Bob Bell really helped us build the momentum for the show, for which I will always be grateful,” said Lala. “I am thrilled to have the Stadium Jumping team to help me take Southeast Medal Finals to the next level. This is a great development for the show.”

Southeast Medal Finals hosts the Alfred B. Maclay Regionals for Region 3. This is one of the most prestigious classes in the country and brings together the best junior riders to vie for the opportunity to compete at the Maclay National Championships at the National Horse Show in Lexington, KY. Stadium Jumping also produces the Region 2 Maclay Regionals at Old Salem Farm during the American Gold Cup.

“We are excited to work with James on this show,” said Michael Morrissey. “We’ve heard great things about it. The Jacksonville Equestrian Center is a fantastic venue and the coliseum makes it perfect for a finals. We look forward to see where we can take it.”

Southeast Medal Finals also produces the popular Phelps Media Group Southeast Junior Medal which junior riders may qualify for at shows in the southeast. The show has added a number of final championship classes and last year added a grand prix and welcome class.

Southeast Medal Finals is hosted by one of the premier equestrian facilities on the East Coast, the Jacksonville Equestrian Center. It is centrally located for USHJA Zone 4 and Region 3 competitors. The complex includes a network of adjacent trails, available to explore and enjoy for a casual hack during horse show down times. With some of the top junior riders in the country competing, Southeast Medal Finals is the perfect preparation for the fall indoor circuit. To learn more about Southeast Medal Finals check out:
