STONE TAVERN, N.J. — The 16th annual Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event (JFI) will take place May 9 through 13, at the Horse Park of New Jersey.

Over the years, JFI has helped determine both United States’ and Canadian World Equestrian Games and Pan Am Games Teams, and will again be a qualifying selection event for the U.S. Eventing Team whose athletes will compete in the quadrennial World Equestrian Games to be held in Tryon, North Carolina, in September.

Tailgating space are still available. The theme is “Stars, Stars, Stars!” Tailgaters are encouraged to decorate their vehicles, areas or hats honoring their favorite rider or horse. Three categories will be judged: Best Single Hat, Best Group of Hats and Best-Themed Tailgate Slot. The entry fee is $50 in addition to the tailgate fee.
