“For us it is a no-brainer to support such a wonderful facility that hosts some of the more elite shows in our region. Since our headquarters are located not far away, it’s nice to have that quality in our backyard. It’s a direct testament to the products and how the horses perform, and we believe there is some synergy there. We feel it’s important that exhibitors know there are products out there that we make with a lot of integrity.

“We are located about 30 minutes away [from Lamplight], so for us, this is an amazingly convenient show. I think the most important thing for us is that although it’s convenient it’s also one of the greatest shows that we attend all year. We have always loved Lamplight Equestrian Center, it is a beautiful facility that is maintained beautifully and run well. We really enjoy showing there. We do travel around the country to horse shows all over, but Lamplight is one of our favorites and it’s right in our backyard. We are supporting the USHJA Pony Derby at this show, and we really like to support the up and coming riders. Something like a derby is so much fun for them as a taste of what’s to come for the hunter derbies, so we’re excited about that.”
