Third Annual James H. Fisher International Grand Prix
September 21, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$10 – $75
This year’s Grand Prix will feature 25 to 30 riders competing in the event representing various countries from across the globe; world cup riders from Chile, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Ireland, and Germany were handpicked as competitors for this year’s Grand Prix due to their qualities of character and reputations for being respectable horsemen. Riders will be competing for a $50,000 grand prize awarded to the Grand Prix champion, the largest purse ever offered for an equestrian event in Blowing Rock. A Calcutta will be held before the competition begins which will provide an opportunity for all premium and general admission ticketholders to “bid” on the riders they hope will win the competition; a week at an elegant international vacation home will be awarded to the highest bidder who selects the winning rider. All proceeds from the Calcutta will go to charities.
Tickets are $75 for Premium tickets, which includes a special luncheon, reserved box seating, and valet parking. General Admission tickets are $10 and include Grandstand seating. There will be food and concessions available at the venue as well.
