On September 14-18, 2016, the American Gold Cup CSI-W is set to return to scenic Old Salem Farm in North Salem, New York for the fifth season in a row. The popular and prestigious show jumping classic annually attracts an international field of world-class riders for what has again become one of America’s most popular show jumping events. Morrissey Management Group is pleased to announce that Beval’s Saddlery has agreed to return as a sponsor and will be there once again, just as they have since day one.
“Beval has been fortunate in being able to be with the American Gold Cup since the inception,” said Vice-President, Bill Mahar. “As the Cup has grown into the premiere event it is today, Beval has grown as a trusted saddlery to all levels of riders. From lead line to the Olympic podium, Beval helps equip both horse and rider to perform at their best.”
“It’s always a great feeling for an organizer when a long-time sponsor readily renews their commitment year after year,” said Michael Morrissey, President of the Morrissey Management Group. “It means we both must be doing something right. For Beval’s, they’ve been doing it right for sixty plus years.”
“The American Gold Cup is a special event for Beval that we are proud to support,” Mahar continued. “The Gold Cup attracts the best riders in the world and our best customers (some are both!) and we get to spend time with them, keeping our finger on the pulse of the sport to enhance our products and services. We also value and enjoy our close relationship with Old Salem Farm and Morrissey Management who have created a spectacular venue that matches our goals of being best in class and an industry leader.”
Thursday is a special day for Beval’s at the American Gold Cup this year as well. “We are looking forward to our fun cocktail party on Thursday where we will highlight developments for Beval, some new products and new exciting projects.”
The American Gold Cup and Beval’s share a common set of goals and standards, another key to both companies’ success. “Our key to longevity has been our commitment to quality and craftsmanship in both Beval products and the products we carry from other premiere brands,” Mahar said. “Our ability to develop and update our products helps us set the standard in the industry. Our year round stores, seasonal stores, and mobile units allow us to quickly respond to our customers’ needs wherever they are riding.”
The 2016 American Gold Cup CSI-W, returns again to the scenic Old Salem Farm in North Salem, NY., on Sept. 14-18, 2016.
