Traverse City, MI - June 29, 2015 - The Custom Fox English Saddlery and Apparel prides itself as being an integral part of the surrounding Michigan community. So it should come as no surprise that the family-owned business will sponsor this year's Great Lakes Equestrian Festival, located in Traverse City, Michigan. 

The Custom Fox mission is to accommodate all levels of riders with a neat and professional look, and it is a mission that matches that of the Equestrian Festival. Set on a beautiful 88 acres, the show boasts five world-class competition rings as well as multiple schooling rings. The wide range of classes and scenic setting make the 2015 festival the perfect event for equestrian athletes and enthusiasts. 

"The Custom Fox has always sponsored the shows in the Traverse City area," said owner John Pfeiffer. "Our mobile tack shop has always been on site, and our farm, Fox Meadow Farm, typically has 30-40 horses showing. We knew with our promotion and persistence, that the show would become one of the country's premier events. We are happy to be sponsoring and attending the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival this year."
Carrying the best brands of equestrian products from all over the world, The Custom Fox specializes in high quality and reasonably priced hunter/jumper equipment. The store makes certain to provide everything horse and rider need to be healthy, stylish, and successful, including casual apparel, show apparel, barn supplies, tack, and accessories.
Attendees at this year's Great Lakes Equestrian Festival looking for any sort of equestrian equipment should make sure to keep an eye out for the famous Custom Fox mobile tack shop!

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. Add to that world-class course designers, including Michele Vaillancourt, Leopoldo Palacios, Bernardo Costa Cabral and Keith Bollotte, on hand to build thoughtful, innovative and challenging tracks makes Great Lakes Equestrian Festival the ideal summer competition to get ready to go for the Gold.
