American Gold Cup
In mid-September, the 43rd edition of the American Gold Cup bounds back onto the grounds at Old Salem Farm as the triumphant climax to yet another season. The five-day event culminates over the weekend with two full days of official FEI show-jumping events, including the $50,000 “Jumper Classic” on Saturday afternoon.
On Sunday morning—before jockeys have strapped on their helmets and horses have had their bucket of coffee—a lineup of attractions helps fans warm up for the main event later in the day. Families can enjoy pony rides, face painters, and magicians throughout the morning, as well as a horseless horse show at noon that's open to all kids. All the day's events lead up to the American Gold Cup Grand Prix at 2 p.m.—a grand finale that dangles $200,000 in prize money in front of competitors and showcases the sport of show jumping as a nationally televised event.
