Wellington, FL – December 22, 2014 – The Ridge at Wellington Turf Tour Series epitomizes tradition with beautiful fences, competition held on the turf and unparalleled hospitality. Whether you are spending an hour, the morning or afternoon, or the entire day, the Wellington Turf Tour accommodates your schedule. The series returns to the Wellington show scene January 2015, and it is an opportunity to show that you cannot miss. With 12 weeks of shows featuring 1.30m-1.35m Jumpers, the 1.40m Grand Prix Series and Young Jumper, Children/Adult, Low Junior/Amateur and Masters Jumpers Classics, the Turf Tour is a stop on everyone’s show schedule.

The 2015 prize list is available here.

With the prospect of endless weeks of all-weather footing on the horizon, now is the time to think of the Wellington Turf Tour. With unparalleled hospitality, including great food and drink, a place to sit under the shade of a tree or just chat with old friends, The Ridge brings back memories of the days when horse showing was fun.

The “Turf Tour” Grand Prix Series hosted by Olympian Nona Garson and her partner, George D’Ambrosio, has added an additional week to the 2015 schedule, now boasting 12 weeks of shows with prize money that has ballooned to just under $500,000.

The 1.30m-1.35m Jumpers will kick off the 12-week series beginning January 7, 2015, and the Friday Grand Prix is set to start January 9, 2015 with both taking place on the turf at Wolfstone Stables. The series will culminate in an exciting finale on March 27, 2015.

In addition to the fabulous Turf Tour, The Ridge at Wellington is bringing back their popular Equitation Tuesdays, a chance for riders to qualify for the equitation finals without the pressures of the big horse show, as well as the local Palm Beach Series schooling shows with classes for all levels of horses and riders who want to practice away from the pressure of larger shows.

The Wellington Turf Tour has been hailed as the 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 that complements the Winter Equestrian Festival. If you’re looking for a change of pace, the Wellington Turf Tour is the place to be!

The Ridge at Wellington will offer their wildly popular 1.40m Grand Prix series as well as an array of options for 1.30m-1.35m Jumpers, Young Jumpers, Children/Adult Classics, Low Junior/Amateur Classics and the Masters Jumpers division.

For the second year, the USHJA International and National Hunter Derbies will return on February 6 and March 20. Also in 2015, the Ridge at Wellington will host an exciting USHJA Pre-Green Incentive Classic during each of the hunter derby weeks.

Mark your calendars now for the much anticipated Wellington Turf Tour, and see the beauty and talent Wellington has to offer with world-class show jumping taking place at estates and facilities throughout the equestrian community. Riders, owners and onlookers will have the chance to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of what can only be described as show scene tradition.
