Wellington, FL – January 24, 2013 – The first two weeks of the Ridge at Wellington’s $175,000 Invitational Grand Prix Series has filled a niche for riders ranging from juniors and amateurs to professionals, and it continues this week with the third event in the series at the prestigious Mida Farm. Top riders from across the nation and around the world including Laura Kraut, Andres Rodriguez, Kevin Babington, Todd Minikus and Candice King have competed in the weekly $15,000 1.40m Grand Prix classes, allowing talent to grow across the board for young horses and riders alike. Due to the generosity of Victoria McCullough, this highlight event will take place on the lush landscape of Mida Farm this Friday, January 25.

The third event will begin this Friday, January 25 at Mida Farm, welcoming Level 2 Jumpers to test the track for the first time on the open grass field. Pierre Jolicouer’s beautifully designed fences will decorate the green open field of Mida Farm for this event, offering a showing experience with a change of footing and venue.

Running concurrently to the Winter Equestrian Festival, riders have the opportunity to reserve a time to show for the $15,000 1.40m Grand Prix. Entry submissions are encouraged prior to the event; however, riders are welcome to join in the competition the day of, as well. With $15,000 at stake each Friday, this event is quickly becoming a highlight of the winter season.

Laura Kraut rode to the top of the leader board during last week’s Grand Prix aboard Marounis IS, and Andres Rodriguez piloted Elatrice to the second place finish after successfully placing first during the first week, now commanding the standings for the leading rider bonus after the first two events.
