Wellington, Florida, USA – February 24, 2022 – Major League Show Jumping snips the ribbon on a second season of CSI5* competition in May 2022 with a confirmed schedule that explores North America’s most popular venues from Canada to Mexico and many thrilling points in between. Two new Canadian events join the 2022 schedule, which commences at Thunderbird Show Park in Vancouver, BC, from May 27 through 30.
“The 2021 Major League Show Jumping season eclipsed our expectations in every way,” said Keean White, co-founder of Major League Show Jumping. “Ten new CSI5* events joined the North American calendar, and more than doubled the opportunities for athlete to obtain world ranking points at the 5* level in Canada, Mexico and the United States. The League also introduced a new concept of team competition that proved to be exceptionally popular among team riders, and was a resounding hit with fans and spectators.
“We at Major League Show Jumping are very proud of the 2022 schedule and we can’t wait for The League to embark on its second season,” concluded White.
After kicking off in Canada, Major League Show Jumping returns to the premiere event of its inaugural season during the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival in Traverse City, MI.
