Wellington, FL – January 19, 2015 –The Ridge at Wellington’s Turf Tour is travelling to The Ridge for its third week of competition.  This week’s events will take place on Wednesday, January 21 and Friday, January 23.   This event will consist of two very exciting days of competition, with highlights including several Young Jumper Championship qualifying classes offered on Wednesday and a $15,000 1.40m Grand Prix on Friday.   

Young horses will have the opportunity to compete this week at the Ridge at Wellington on the large Grand Prix field.  In addition, The Ridge will be hosting a Young Jumper Symposium tomorrow from 4-6 p.m. that will talk about the training and proper course building for young horses. The Ridge at Wellington is proud to announce that Michel Ismalun, a member of the course design team from WEG 2014, will be presenting this clinic as well as designing this week’s young jumper courses.

Wednesday will have just under $5000 in prize money up for grabs in the 1.30-1.35m jumpers and an additional $3000 available in the Young Jumper division.  There will be $15,000 in prize money offered in Friday’s 1.40m Grand Prix.

This Wednesday and Friday, The Ridge will welcome attendees to the third week of the Ridge at Wellington’s Turf Tour, a unique series designed to provide a change of venue for all riders, and develop young talent in both horses and riders.  The series allows for a fresh experience outside of WEF and excels at a relaxed atmosphere with unrivaled hospitality.  On Wednesday, the sand ring will see horses and riders competing in 1.30-1.35m jumpers with an open card running from 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.  The grand prix field will see low schooling and 5-year-old jumpers from 8 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.  Medium schooling and 6 year-old jumpers will run from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.  7 & 8 year-old jumpers will run in the afternoon from 2 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.  Each division has two classes running concurrently with open cards.  The Young Jumper Division will have one class run as optimum time and a second class that will be a qualifier for Young Jumper Championships.  The 5 and 6-year-old qualifying classes have $500 in prize money and the 7 & 8-year-old class offers $2000.

Friday’s events promise to be exciting, with the $15,000 1.4m Grand Prix running in the Grand Prix field from 8 a.m. through 4:30 pm.  The sand arena will see low and medium schooling jumpers with two classes running concurrently offered at each height.  These schooling jumper classes will continue to be offered on Friday throughout the remainder of the Turf Tour. 

The event is approaching quickly, so riders should get their entries in to avoid post-entry fees.  Week three of the Ridge at Wellington’s Turf Tour will take place at The Ridge.  The physical address is 14415 Palm Beach Pt. Blvd Wellington.
