Come Out to the Ridge at Wellington This Friday for the First $15,000 Invitational Series Friday Grand Prix

Written by: Kendall Bierer
Client: The Ridge Farm
Release Date: 2013-01-09

Wellington, FL- January 8, 2013- This Friday marks the first $15,000 Invitational Friday Grand Prix at the Ridge at Wellington. The 11-week series is the highlight of the season for Level II Jumpers. This 1.40m Grand Prix is one of a kind with over $175,000 offered in prize monies throughout the series. Friday, January 11, 2013, is sure to be a day full of excitement at the Ridge at Wellington.

The weekly 1.40m Friday Grand Prix is open to Low Junior/Amateurs and High Junior/Amateur Jumper riders, who usually participate in two separate divisions. These classes usually produce prize monies of $1,500 -$2,500, but this new event at the Ridge at Wellington is offering $15,000 every Friday, and will culminate with a $24,750 Grand Prix Series Finale.

The Invitational Series will allow riders the chance to compete on a horse they wouldn’t normally ride at the Wellington Equestrian Festival (WEF), or reserve a time to show their favorite mount after their simultaneous activities at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. With the additional higher stakes, this series is sure to become a hit for the winter season. This fun event will allow riders to reserve a time to ride, so they will not miss out on any concurrent events at the show.

Riders who participated in eight out of the 10 Friday Grand Prix classes will have the opportunity to show in the $24,750 Grand Prix Series Finale on Saturday, March 23, 2013, with no entry fee. Riders are encouraged to get their entries in for this exciting event as soon as possible to let the event coordinators know they are participating and will be at the ring for their jumping times.

The Ridge still has available sponsorships for the Invitational Series.  For more information, call (908) 500-0996 or download information at http://www.theridgefarm,com/documents/TheRidgea%20WellingtonWinterInvitationalGrandPrixSeries%20v4.pdf.
