As summer winds down, we're just getting started at Thunderbird. International jumping begins Wednesday with the $35,000 CSI3* Maui Jim Welcome, Friday features the $35,000 CSI3* Steel-Craft Doors Speed and Sunday afternoons main event is $135,600 CSI3* Longines FEI World Cup Qualifier presented by Facet Advisors.
In addition to great jumping at the park, Thunderbird is taking over downtown Vancouver! Come down to Stanley Park on Wednesday morning to watch Canadian rider, Ben Asselin, and last year's World Cup winner, Karl Cook, put on a jumping demonstration. We'll also be joined by Vancouver Police Mounted Unit as we show off the sport of show jumping and celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. The event is free and runs from 7 to 9 am in front of the Brockton Pavillion by the Totem Poles.
