The purpose of the Jump Canada Young Horse Series is to encourage the development of young show jumping talent and to give Canadian breeders additional incentives to breed superior show jumping prospects. Competing on a level playing field, the horses are divided according to age and jump at a level suited to their development. This careful development allows the hors- es to gain valuable experience and advance to the higher levels of show jumping competition with confi- dence. The Jump Canada Young Horse Series also gives prospective buyers for the hunter and jumper markets an opportunity to view a large group of prospects in a compe- tition setting.

Highlights include over $6.1 million to be won in Ontario-Bred bonuses, over $3.4 mil- lion available for breeder and stallion awards, and over $5.8 million in pro- gram incentives including purse sup- plements for Ontario-Bred stakes, added money or selected Graded Stakes races, and the Ontario Sires Stakes racing program.

Breeders Awards and the Fort Erie Owners Bonus program will apply to the Fort Erie Ontario Sired Allowance series.
