The American Grand Prix Association (AGA) returns the United States’ original equestrian stadium-jumping tour to one of its first venues.

When Charlotte Bobcats owner Robert Johnson presents his Charlotte Jumper Classic, he will re-establish the “Queen City” as a host to top-flight equestrian competition. As one among the 33 national events that constitute the annual AGA Grand Prix Series, 42 riders will compete and/or demonstrate indoors April 9-11th at Charlotte’s latest Coliseum. Mary Silcox, director of publications for Stadium Jumping Inc., attributed the hiatus of the AGA from Charlotte to insufficient indoor facilities, especially given the trend towards international level competition, which is traditionally staged indoors for cultivating both World Cup and Olympic riders. “Charlotte,” reminisces Silcox, “was one of the first cities to host AGA events. Naturally, the association’s excited about returning.” Johnson further exalted the return as, “an example of the diverse types of events we will be bringing to Charlotte as operators of the new arena.”

Television taping of the event will be supplied by MediaComm’s mobile production truck. Based in Charlotte, N.C., their truck is one of many services offered by this turnkey production company. Remote units manager Jay Shennum enthusiastically welcomed the AGA event, calling it “an excellent opportunity to diversify [MediaComm’s] live sports resume.” Reiterating this enthusiasm, MediaComm president Chris Cates stated that “Recent modifications we’ve made to our truck will definitely enhance the production value of the event, which–in turn–will bring attention to both this sport and the city of Charlotte.”

With plans for airing the Classic annually on his recently announced Carolina Sports and Entertainment Network (C-SET), Johnson feels confident that it will be successful. Proceeds from the Classic will be donated to the Bobcats Charitable Fund, the philanthropic arm of Johnson’s new NBA franchise.

MediaComm Mobile is a “straight” truck based in Charlotte, NC, providing live and taped television production services to ESPN, the NBA, the WNBA, SPEED Channel, NASCAR Images, the Inspiration Networks and many others since 2001.
