Gladstone, NJ - July 27, 2012 - The United States Equestrian Team Foundation is pleased to announce the dedication of the Hamilton Farm Stable Courtyard on Saturday, October 6, 2012. The courtyard will honor Frank D. Chapot, George H. Morris and William C. Steinkraus. This dedication is through a generous gift made to the Gladstone Fund by Jane Forbes Clark, USET Foundation President.
"No three people have ever done more for U.S. Show Jumping then Frank, George, and Bill. They are truly dedicated and gifted horsemen who have laid the foundation, and set the example, for excellence in this country. They are true legends and leaders in the sport of show jumping and it is wonderful to dedicate the courtyard at Gladstone, the home of the United States Equestrian Team, in their honor," remarked Clark.
The dedication will take place at Hamilton Farm in Gladstone, NJ, in conjunction with the USEF Talent Search Finals - East where approximately 100 of the top young show jumping riders in this country will be competing in this prestigious championship. The importance of recognizing Frank, George and Bill in front of this country's aspiring young talent will be a wonderful opportunity for the past, and the future, generations of show jumping to come together in honoring these iconic men and their accomplishments.
