Traverse City, MI - May 1, 2015 - The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is the place to be this summer whether you are a competitor, spectator or vendor. A high turnout is expected for the premiere of the series, creating the perfect opportunity for boutiques to showcase their products and services. 

The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival in Traverse City, MI will run for four weeks at Flintfields Horse Park, July 1 through July 26. Boutique space is limited and on a first-come-first-serve basis. Reserve your spot today to be sure to take advantage of the summer shoppers.
 
With Stadium Jumping, Inc., a leading, award-winning international show jumping event management firm, you can expect high standards and exceptional competition in a beautiful setting.   
 
Known for its pristine beaches, the area was voted one of the top 10 best summer trips by the travel editors at National Geographic. Viewers of ABC's Good Morning America voted nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes, "The Most Beautiful Place in America." Traverse City was named Smithsonian Magazine's "Top Ten Best Small Towns to Visit in 2015."  Fodors Travel's Jimmy Im says, "Traverse City is a burgeoning food and wine destination, popular for its cherries, excellent vineyards, and farm-to-table cuisine." Bon Appetit magazine named it one of five top foodie towns in America.

With average July temperatures ranging from 58-81, it's the perfect place to compete, escape the heat and enjoy the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan.
 
Highlights of the four weeks include a weekly $50,000 Grand Prix, $25,000 Jumper Classic and a weekly $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby. Plus, during Week 4 Great Lakes Equestrian Festival will feature a $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is the perfect venue to prepare for this year's Pan American Games, which will be held at the Caledon Equestrian Park in Palgrave, just outside of Toronto, Canada. Show jumping during the Pan-Am Games runs from July 17- 25. The close proximity (just 430 miles) makes Great Lakes Equestrian Festival a convenient half-day drive to the Pan-Am Games venue and provides three great weeks prep time in Michigan's very similar climate.
