Tampa, FL—December 3, 2003—Robert Kraut, Evan Coluccio, Fred Bauer, and Katie Gardner emerged as champions of the 2003 Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series.

The Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series featured classes at more than 70 horse shows across the nation in 2003, giving competitors an abundance of opportunities to accumulate points throughout the year.

In the junior division, Evan Coluccio of Middleburg, VA, and Romeo proved themselves unbeatable, taking top honors with 148 points.
