On Monday, April 8, 2013 the Maury County Horsemen’s Association met in Columbia, Tennessee to make final plans for the upcoming Columbia Spring Jubilee which will be held May 31-June 1, 2013. This year, a number of new additions and exciting opportunities will be presented.

For the first time our first Cliff Loftin Youth 11 & Under Grand Champion will be crowned on Friday evening just before the final class. The competitors in this division will be called in individually, low number to high, and the 2013 Grand Champion will be presented with a championship floral horseshoe by a very special and famous guest.

Our 2013, and first ever Andy Adkins Youth 12-17 Grand Champion will enter the ring in the same manner as above, and will also be presented the title, floral horse shoe, awards, and all of the emblems of supremacy within the division. These awards will as well be presented by a very famous special guest.

This year, the Championship Stake Class will offer $2,500.00 in prize money with $1,000.00 for first place and 8th receiving no less than $100.00. This enabled through the new Baskin-Irby Championship Challenge which has donated $2,500.00 to the Columbia Spring Jubilee through Baskin-Irby Construction Company, LLC in Franklin, Lewisburg, and Clarksville, TN. The “Challenge” will provide $2,500.00 to be matched by additional donors for a total of $5,000.00. Of this amount, $2,500.00 will be provided for the Stake, $1,000.00 for the Open Specialty Championship on Friday evening, and $750.00 each for both the 2 & 3 Year Old Stallion Classes as prize money. An additional $500.00 in prize money has been provided for the 4 Year Old Stallion Class by Maury Regional Hospital in Columbia.
