Release Date: 2011-03-14

Tampa, FL – March 15, 2011 – Stadium Jumping, Inc. announced today that Horseware Ireland and Triple Crown have been named the Official Blanket sponsor for this year’s $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational, presented by G & C Farm, to be held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium on Saturday, April 9, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.

For more than 25 years, discerning equestrians the world over have chosen the Triple Crown brand of custom-made horse clothing for its timeless elegance, quality material and unmatched fit.

Each blanket is handcrafted in the USA and tailored to meet exact specifications, using the finest fabrics and fittings available. The materials, craftsmanship and attention to detail make each individual blanket the ultimate symbol of equestrian style and performance.

In 1997, the Triple Crown company was acquired by Irish entrepreneur Tom MacGuinness, founder of Horseware Ireland, and creator of the popular Rambo turnout that had revolutionized the horse clothing industry a decade earlier. Tom knew that the Triple Crown brand was consistent with his philosophy of offering the best quality materials and the best fit for top blanket performance.

“We are thrilled to be the official blanket sponsor of this year’s American Invitational,” said Tom MacGuinness, Triple Crown CEO. “The Triple Crown line of handcrafted horse clothing is about classic style, top quality materials and clean lines – it is a truly American brand that reflects a simple, understated elegance.” MacGuinness also reported that, “a portion of each blanket sold through is donated to JustWorld International.”

The site is the result of Mr. MacGuinness’ vision to use the Internet to offer customers the same enduring quality, in a new, easy-to-use online self-service model.
