Photo Marketing4Equestrians Roscoe, IL – June 26, 2021 – Showplace Productions will host the Illinois Hunter Jumper Association's (IHJA) B Circuit Medal and Marketing4Equestrians Derby Finals, September 17 - 19, 2021, as part of the impressive local circuit lineup for the 2021 show season. Showplace Productions prides itself in making every event for every level of riding a spectacular and memorable experience. Join Showplace Productions for a fantastic season full of amazing awards and hospitality. "Showplace Productions’ B circuit has been the starting grounds for some of the most successful equestrians in the country. We have started past Olympians, medal finals winners, and current successful equestrian professionals in the business. We believe in running shows from the cross rail level up to 3’6” jumpers at the same high level as our biggest A rated shows. We want to give all the exhibitors the same feeling that they will experience when and if they graduate to the bigger A rated circuit shows and start to travel across the country to try to qualify for all the indoor circuit shows, including the USHJA Las Vegas National Championships," said Showplace Productions' Pat Boyle.

"We now have a way for our B-rated shows to have our exhibitors qualify for the USHJA Las Vegas National Championships. The Championships in Vegas have opened the show to include all riders from the grass-roots up to the highest FEI level show jumpers," Boyle continued. "This is why we have always believed in running our IHJA B Rated shows at the same high level as all of our A rated shows, so all of our riders and their horses will have seen and practiced everything they need to be confident when they step up to a higher level. The IHJA B circuit has always been a more affordable option for people starting out as they develop their skills before graduating to the A circuit. We hope to see everyone this summer and good luck qualifying for our IHJA Medal finals horse shows at the end of the year. See you at the ring!" In addition to a complete schedule of "B" shows, the season finals include the $1,000 Marketing4Equestrians Hunter Derby Finals along with bonus awards forLeading Horse, Leading Professional Rider, and Leading Junior/Amateur Rider. Marketing4Equestrians (formerly Chicago Equestrian) has supported the hunter derby experience for local riders since the inception of the class, offering riders a chance to experience a hunter derby at heights appropriate to their level of riding. Showplace Productions makes the derby finals possible while offering fun and exciting competition over beautifully designed courses in the Grand Prix arena. "I'd like to thank Showplace Productions for continuing to host the derby at every B show," said Brenda Mueller of Marketing4Equestrians. "It gives riders something to look forward to and something to learn from each time they ride in a derby. It means a lot to me to see the derby available at all levels of experience. I'm happy to see riders participate in the class and encourage everyone to try one. Showplace always goes the extra mile to make it a special and memorable event."
