Horseflight Joins Monmouth at the Team Family of Sponsors

Written by: Kenneth Kraus
Client: Monmouth at the Team
Release Date: 2016-07-18

Gladstone, N.J. – July 18, 2016 – The longest continuously run horse show in America, the Monmouth County Horse Show, is now a brand new event at historic Hamilton Farm, home to the United States Equestrian Team Foundation in Gladstone, New Jersey. The show, officially named Monmouth at the Team, is scheduled for August 15–21. Competition will take place in Hamilton Farm’s main arena. This year’s debut at Gladstone will feature a full array of hunter, jumper and equitation classes plus featured hunter derbies and much more.

A group of generous sponsors has come on board for this inaugural event, including Horseflight, sponsor of this year’s $10,000 1.30m Jumper Mini-Prix.

Horseflight’s slogan says it all: “Excellence in international horse transportation.” Horseflight employees are true horsemen, having grown up riding, training and caring for horses. The team understands how important your horse is to you. They don’t treat your horse as a commodity, but as a good-hearted family member requiring special attention throughout the entire transport process.

Four key elements factor into the Horseflight way of doing business. Leading that list is safety. Horseflight ensures the safety of your horse from the very first step to the last. The health of your horse is the key to a safe and relaxed flight, which Horseflight carefully monitors through proper nutrition, sleeping conditions and immunizations. Horseflight also makes the transportation process easy and efficient for its customers. They take care of the details so you have nothing to worry about. Finally, at Horseflight, they ensure that the cost quoted to you is what you will pay. There are no added fees at the end of the process.

“Our thanks to Horseflight and their generous support for Monmouth at the Team,” said show manager and co-owner Tucker Ericson. “Without supporting sponsors like Horseflight, creating a show like Monmouth at the Team would be impossible. We are very grateful.”

Horseflight is under the guidance of managing partner Bastian Schröder. With an MBA from Ernst- Moritz Arndt University in Greifswald, Germany, and as a German resident and a citizen of the European Union, Schröder brings a unique set of connections, experience and skills to the company. His detailed knowledge of equestrian logistics in Europe enhances Horseflight’s ability to transport horses efficiently and safely between Europe and the United States.

“Michael Dowling and Tucker Ericson have been friends of ours for a long time. They do a wonderful job with all of their projects and show an amazing attention to detail, a passion for the sport and all the while, keeping the exhibitors’ needs at the forefront,” Schröder explained. “When we were presented with the opportunity to become a supporting sponsor of an historic show at such a storied location we jumped at the chance to get in on the ground floor.”

“Gladstone shares not only a special history for our sport, but a special history for me personally,” he continued. “We knew exhibitors would jump at the chance to show at this prestigious location and are looking forward to remaining involved with the show, as it will surely evolve and grow for many years to come. As a German national, even I knew of the storied past of Gladstone. It has been a training home to some of the best and brightest U.S. athletes. So many talented equestrians in all disciplines have had the chance to ride and train at Gladstone, and now the greater equestrian community will have a chance to be a part of that history as well. Very exciting stuff!”

According to Schröder, Horseflight is a company that is run by horse people for horse people, which gives them a special leg-up in the business. “Everyone on our staff comes from the industry,” said Schröder. “We are all equestrians with a love for the sport first and foremost. That passion, I believe, has translated into everything we do here at Horseflight. My wife competes in the Amateur-Owner Hunters so when I’m not in the office, I can be found out at a horse show helping her ride and groom. It helps me stay connected with the community and my passion for the sport.”

Highly respected equestrians Emil Spadone and Seth Vallhonrat are partners in Horseflight along with Schröder and can be found at many shows across the country and are always happy to answer any questions that may arise.

“If you haven’t given us a chance to bid on your transportation needs, please think of us next time!” added Schröder. “My dedicated team is the best in the business. We will always go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. If you find yourself at Gladstone, please come by and meet some of the team!”
