Nilforushan Equisport Events is dedicated to producing world-class equestrian events, as well as providing lively entertainment to enhance the horse show experience.
“We are so happy to welcome AIG as a co-sponsor for an exhibitor party,” said Ali Nilforushan, co-founder and co-owner of Nilforushan Equisport Events. “The parties are always a highlight of the horse show, and exhibitors and their families look forward to them each week. It is because of sponsors like AIG that we are able to provide world-class competition in the ring as well as entertainment and fun outside of the ring. Our goal is to provide an all-around horse show experience, and we can’t thank AIG enough for helping to make that a reality.”
