The third series of H&C’s hugely popular talent show All Star Academy is back in the Autumn. Jump 4 Joy, the UK’s leading manufacturer of show jumps has announced its sponsorship of the showjumping and cross country jumping modules.
Described as a cross between The Apprentice and Pony Club camp, the show will see eight finalists put to the test over a full course of Jump 4 Joy’s show jumps, as well as a selection of their cross-country fences. The overall winner of the jumping modules will win a set of Jump 4 Joy show jumps worth over £1300.
Nigel Underwood, Managing Director of Jump 4 Joy commented,” We are really excited to be working with Horse & Country TV on this show. Our reputation for manufacturing top quality, highly colourful and creative jump designs has been instrumental in our involvement in the show, and we are very much looking forward to building a unique showjumping course designed to test the skills of both the horse and rider.”
He added, “We are also very pleased to be able to include our cross-country fences in the mix, too. We have been developing our range of xc jumps and have introduced some exciting new options including the hanging brush filler and super-skinny 70cm brush that we know offers some exciting challenges for riders!”
On behalf of H&C, Director and Chief Creative Officer Richard Burdett added, “We’re delighted to be working with Jump 4 Joy on this Series. The modules have become such an integral part of the show as well as being a great showcase for our brand partners. We’re looking forward to an extremely colourful module which will really put our contestants to the test.”
The show which is due to be filmed in September will be filmed at the Talland School of Equitation, with Pammy Hutton and her son Charlie as mentors and judges for the contestants. The finalists will also get the chance to be taught by the leading names in equestrian sport. The show is scheduled to be aired in November 2018.
