The event is one of North America’s premier show-jumping events and the North American Riders Group’s highest ranked horse show in the United States.
Featuring a full array of jumper classes including sections for Children and Adult Jumpers, Low and High Junior/Amateur Jumpers, and Open Jumpers, the American Gold Cup attracted a diverse crowd of elite equestrian athletes, discerning horse owners, excited fans and aspiring riders. The five-day event hosted an exclusive Hermès equestrian boutique offering a complete selection of high-performance products for the horse, the rider, and the stable.
On Saturday, September 17, Hermès presented the $35,000 Hermès Sellier Cup, a 1.45 meter Open Jumper class that requires an exciting combination of both precision and pace, was won by Georgina Bloomberg.
The 2016 Gold Cup came to a conclusion on Sunday, culminating a full week of world-class show jumping competition with the highly anticipated $216,000 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping New York CSI-4*W. Equestrian fans and spectators watched as Kent Farrington (USA) captured the American Gold Cup aboard Gazelle.
