The COVID-19 shockwaves continue with the announcement that Jersey Fresh International will postpone its upcoming event, scheduled to be held May 6-10, 2020 in Allentown, NJ. The organizers released the following statement this evening:
“Due to the latest updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), State of New Jersey and Local Officials, it is with great sadness and frustration that the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event (JFI) will suspend competition scheduled for May 6-10 at the Horse Park of New Jersey due to the COVID-19 Virus.
The JFI Organizing Committee, along with the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI), United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and United States Eventing Association (USEA), will be looking for a future date to run JFI 2020, as soon as Federal, state and local authorities deem it safe to do so.
It is our commitment to reschedule JFI 2020 – if we are able, to help our Competitors gain qualifications for future international competitions. In the meantime, the JFI Organizing Committee and the Horse Park of New Jersey wish everyone in the Eventing community good health and a speedy end to this challenging time.”
Jersey Fresh now joins the long and growing list of horse shows and other sporting events that have been forced to postpone or cancel altogether, including the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. You can find the latest updates to that list here.
