Wayne, Ill. – July 19, 2016 – With the month of June coming to a close, Lamplight Equestrian Center has a few weeks left to prepare for the highly anticipated 2016 Chicago Festival of the Horse. Maintaining the high-caliber reputation for Equifest is a bit easier for Nina Koloseike, owner of Lamplight Equestrian Center, when she and her team have the opportunity to work with premier sponsors like Kastel Denmark.

Lamplight Equestrian Center is proud to support multiple facets of the equestrian sport. Therefore, teaming up with a respectable brand that supports riders of all equestrian disciplines was natural.  

“Kastel Denmark is thrilled to be a sponsor of Equifest at Lamplight Equestrian Center this summer,” said Susan Benson, Marketing Director of Kastel Denmark. “We love to support equestrian sports and our vendors at this wonderful venue.”

Kastel Denmark will have a large presence throughout the show grounds, but especially in the Grand Prix arena, where they will award the Kastel Denmark Style of Riding Award in each Grand Prix class.

The winner will be selected by management for their exemplified American style of riding and overall sportsmanship. The featured rider will be awarded a certificate to be redeemed by a Kastel Denmark on-site vendor for a UV protected shirt.

"We're beyond thrilled to have Kastel Denmark be apart of an annual tradition at Lamplight Equestrian Center for the 2016 Chicago Festival the Horse," Koloseike said. "They are a great company, and we feel our competitors and equestrian family can benefit tremendously from their protective and fashionable brand. We’re honored that they've chosen Equifest as one of their platforms."

Kastel Denmark was founded by American Grand Prix dressage rider, Charlotte Jorst. The successful athlete is also a wife, mother and successful businesswoman. The Kastel Denmark brand is inspired by the strength of fortress “kastels,” from her native county, Denmark. She designed the apparel to be functional and contemporary.

Kastel places a high importance on sun protection. In an outdoor sport, exposure to sun is inevitable. In an interview with Horse-Tales, Jorst stated that one of the biggest cancer killers in the United States is Melanoma. This was part of her inspiration for selecting the appropriate, safe and functional fabric. The Kastel shirts cover the neck and arms, while maintaining the body cool.  

At Equifest, riders will be able to visit on-site vendors to purchase Kastel Denmark apparel.

“We are looking forward to seeing the Kastel Denmark UV protective shirts, as well as our soft-shell jackets featured with the Equifest logo,” Benson added.

During Equifest II (August 2-7), Kastel will be awarding a rider in the $75,000 Grand Prix featured event. However, the Grand Prix arena will also host the $25,000 Welcome Stake, $25,000 Jumper Derby, $25,000 International Hunter Derby and the $5,000 USHJA NAT Hunter Derby.
