Wellington, FL- March 7, 2013- Tomorrow marks the ninth week of the Ridge at Wellington’s $175,000 1.40m Invitational Series, and the stakes are high as riders compete for the series’ top honors and prize money. The event was designed to develop young riders, as well as young horses, and this inaugural event has quickly become the talk of the Wellington circuit with an unprecedented amount of earnings at stake for Level II Jumpers.The event has been hailed as the highlight of the season and riders only have two weeks left to experience it. Top riders, amateurs and juniors alike have chosen to ride in this invitational series, challenging their young horses to a new experience during the Winter Equestrian Festival. Entries are available at

This week marks the ninth of the series, and has seen riders such as Darragh Kenny, Andres Rodriguez, Kevin Babington, Andrew Bourns, McLain Ward, Laura Kraut and Candice King take their turn at the course. The class will once again find its home on the luxurious grass “Tops Field” of Mida Farm in Wellington, FL. Although Rodriguez currently ranks at the top of the Leading Rider standings, other contenders are guaranteed to put their best foot forward in this penultimate event to try to snatch the points and potential prize.

This is the only series that offers a weekly purse of $15,000 for Level II Jumpers, an unparalleled amount for a 1.40m competition. The series culminates with the Ridge at Wellington 1.40m Invitational Series Finale March 23, 2013. The purse at stake on that fateful Saturday is $24,750—nothing to take lightly in the world of show jumping. Top professional, amateur and junior riders will compete in a battle of the best.

Although the finale is open to all Level II riders, it is recommended that riders take their turn at the course tomorrow, March 8, at Mida Farm. The Friday event will run from 8 am to 5 pm. Riders are encouraged to get their entries in as soon as possible for the approaching Friday Grand Prix. Turning in entries early will ensure that they get the time that they desire.
