Client: Southeast Medal Finals
Release Date: 2013-09-09

Jacksonville, FL – September 9, 2013 – Much of the success of the Southeast Medal Finals can be credited to the show’s many valuable sponsors – including Jerry Parks Insurance Group. The leading Ocala, FL based insurance company has been a longtime sponsor of the Region 3 Maclay Regionals, and this year Jerry Parks Insurance Group and Great American Insurance will present the Hunter Classics at the 2013 Southeast Medal Finals (SEMF), to be held September 19-22 at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center.

“We really enjoy supporting these shows,” said Rhonda Mack, manager of the equine department at Jerry Parks Insurance Group. “We have a lot of clients in the Jacksonville area, and it’s a great way to give something back to them and show our appreciation.”

The Jerry Parks Insurance Group and Great American Insurance sponsored Hunter Classics include the SEMF Junior Hunter Classic, the SEMF Amateur Owner Classic, the SEMF Adult Hunter Classic, the SEMF Children’s Hunter Classic, the SEMF Pre-Children’s/Pre-Adult Hunter Classic and the SEMF Short Stirrup Hunter Classic.

The Hunter Classics and the entire Southeast Medal Finals weekend, attract some the country’s leading riders and trainers for a competitive experience at Jacksonville Equestrian Center. With excellent footing and a large indoor coliseum plus outdoor arenas, the Jacksonville show provides the perfect horse and rider preparation for the indoor circuit.

Together, Southeast Medal Finals and Jerry Parks Insurance Group are the perfect fit. For more than 20 years, Jerry Parks Insurance has been providing quality equine mortality coverage. In recent years, the company expanded its services to offer insurance coverage to meet the needs of every horseman in every breed, from the owner of one horse to a large farm owner.

In addition to coverage for the equine, Jerry Parks Insurance Group specialists are able to assist with comprehensive farm packages, workers’ compensation, horse owners’ liability, general business liability and packages, umbrella liability, homeowners insurance and more – all underwritten by some of the nation’s largest and most financially sound carriers, including Great American Insurance.
