Wellington, Fla. – Jan. 15, 2018 – Celebrating another year of support, Cedar Crest Stables has returned for its eighth year as a Team Sponsor of the upcoming 9th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament. One of the premier sponsors since the early years of the tournament, Catherine Malone’s Cedar Crest Stables is a perfect fit as a representative of the Gay Polo Tournament due to Malone’s avid equestrian and equal rights background. Now an official 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, GPL is thrilled to host the annual charity event once again, with the proceeds earmarked to help those within the LGBTQ youth community.
“I love supporting this event because I think that GPL is a wonderful organization and everyone is so genuinely devoted to the cause,” said Malone. “I’m especially excited with the fact that this year GPL is supporting a charity. It is really wonderful and adds a whole new layer to the tournament.”
An accomplished and well-known international dressage competitor, Malone won the gold medal at the prestigious North American Junior Young Riders’ Championships aboard the Dutch Warmblood gelding, Michigan, in 2005. The young equestrian currently trains and competes out of her Wellington, Fla.-based Cedar Crest Stables. Though her accomplishments in the ring are prominent, Malone is also known outside the dressage arena as an advocate for equal rights for LGBTQ people.
“GPL is honored that Cedar Crest Stables has chosen to continue our partnership in producing the tournament,” said Chip McKenney, Founder and President of the Gay Polo League. “It is organizations like Cedar Crest that help us to make the event better year after year, and we are so grateful for its 2018 sponsorship.”
In 2015, Cedar Crest Stables’ sponsored team won the Gay Polo Tournament’s Founders Cup for the fourth consecutive year, and after a one-year hiatus in 2016, returned to the top spot on the podium as the 2017 champions of the Senators Cup. The team will return to International Polo Club Palm Beach the week of Apr. 5 – 8, 2018 to once again vie for the top spot in the 9th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament.
