Skidmore College Saratoga Classic - First-Rate Competition & First-Rate Philanthropy

WESTPORT, CT - May 9, 2014 - The Skidmore College Saratoga Classic is the highlight of the early summer season in Saratoga. The show is one of the favorites of many trainers and exhibitors nationwide, and winner of the 2013 USHJA Member's Choice Award for best 'AA' Zone 2 show. 2014 highlights include WCHR, $15,000 Hunter Derby, $25,000 Grand Prix, $12,000 Take2 Thoroughbred divisions, and $10,000 Jumper Cup. Participants experience not only a first-rate competition, but also the opportunity to dine, shop, relax, and experience historic Saratoga Springs for two weeks. This event is the College's single largest fundraising event with all proceeds going directly towards scholarship awards.

This year, the show will also support horse welfare by offering the Best Performance Competition, the joint program of the EQUUS Foundation and the USEF that rewards competitive excellence and helps improve the quality of life of horses.
