Wellington, FL – January 30, 2014 – The Ridge at Wellington Turf Tour 1.40m Grand Prix HAS BEEN MOVED from Friday, January 31, to Saturday, February 1, due to the weather and scheduling conflicts. The grand prix will take place this SATURDAY at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC). Riders will not want to miss out on the opportunity to take home their piece of the $15,000 in prize money up for grabs in Saturday’s 1.40m Invitational Grand Prix.

IPC will welcome attendees to the fourth of an 11-week series filled with top-tier competitors, horses and nearly $200,000 in prize money. Get your entries in now by clicking here. This is a rare opportunity for jumper riders to compete on the beautiful turf usually reserved for polo. Even if riders do not have a chance to pre-enter for the class, they are encouraged to still attend, as post-entries are accepted.

The Ridge at Wellington Turf Tour was designed to develop young riders and young horses and provide a change of venue for all riders. The inaugural events became the talk of the 2013 Wellington circuit with an unprecedented amount of earnings at stake for Level II Jumpers. The event was hailed as a highlight of the season with top riders, amateurs and juniors alike choosing to ride in the invitational series, challenging their young horses to a new experience during the Winter Equestrian Festival.

The event is approaching quickly, so riders should get their entries in to avoid post-entry fees. The stakes are increasing each week as top riders, amateur and professional, vie for their invitation into the $24,750 Invitational Grand Prix Series Finale Saturday, March 22, 2014, and the Leading Rider Bonus.

Meadowbrook Horse Transport will provide transportation to and from the horse show and other locations throughout Wellington. The transportation is a nominal fee of $50 per horse, and will be calculated into the final show fees. To make a reservation for one of the three pickup times: 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. please call Peter Tufano of Meadowbrook Horse Transport at (954) 415-7217, or call Nona Garson at (908) 500-0996.

The event will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Riders are encouraged to get their entries in as soon as possible for the approaching Saturday Grand Prix. Turning in entries early will ensure that they get the time that they desire.
