Traverse City, MI - July 15, 2015 - For the Haas family, owners of North Face Farm and Jewelry Company Bead by Bead, the decision to join the team of sponsors at this year's Great Lakes Equestrian Festival, just outside Traverse City, Michigan, was simply a no-brainer.

This highly anticipated series of horse shows, now in its third week, are hosted by one of the world's top horse show production companies, Stadium Jumping, Inc., and are taking place at the stunning Flintfields Horse Park.

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 festival is set on 88 beautiful acres and showcases five world-class competition rings in addition to spacious schooling rings. The property features don't stop there as the park offers convenient on-site campgrounds, making for a truly unique attendee experience. Given its gorgeous summer setting and its wide range of classes, the 2015 Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is an event that is drawing rave review from equestrians

As dedicated equestrians themselves, the Haas family's generosity is all their pleasure. "I was on board from the beginning; as one of the founding sponsors of Horse Shows by the Bay, I was just so happy to see Karen Flint of Flintfields Horse Park come together with Stadium Jumping, Inc. to make this show possible," Jake Haas expressed with optimism, "This summer equestrian festival is so important for the horse show industry, as well as the area of Traverse City in itself, so when I saw these two forces joining it was absolutely a double-positive."

Jake and Anne Haas of North Face Farm, along with their two children Erin and Sarah, put all things horse-related at the forefront of their lives. The family proudly calls North Face Farm home, located in Chelsea, Michigan, where they ride and train horses for top competitions suchas the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival. Erin is a highly successful competitor whose name is well known throughout the equestrian world, and also the founder of North Face Equine Services, a veterinarian practice that provides thorough, cutting-edge veterinary sports medicine from the perspective of a rider and horse owner. Sarah also owns her own full service boarding and training facility, Swept Away Farm, in Temperance, Michigan.

Aside from being thoroughly involved in the equestrian events taking place at the upcoming summer horse show, Anne Haas will also be a featured vendor at the highly anticipated event. Her unique jewelry company, Bead by Bead, sells eclectic jewelry such as horsehair bracelets fixed with sterling silver clasps, "bling" spurs, bedazzled note cards, and various other accessories and gifts that cater to the equestrian aesthetic.  

"The Haas family has truly displayed their enduring support from the beginning, and we are beyond grateful for the continuation of their generosity," said Matt Morrissey of Stadium Jumping Inc. "It's because of people like them that we are able to keep these shows up-and-running, especially at this level, and they make it clear that they want to see top quality productions presented by Stadium Jumping Inc."
