Wellington, Fla. – Aug. 18, 2021 – Phelps Media Group is pleased to announce the addition of the Desert International Horse Park to its clientele roster, which already features some of the most important equestrian events in the United States. The Desert International Horse Park joins the ranks of The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival, Nilforushan EquiSports Events, Kentucky Horse Show LLC, and the Devon Horse Show working with Phelps equestrian marketing and public relations agency.
The Desert International Horse Park (DIHP), located outside of Palm Springs, California, is the crown jewel of winter equestrian sport on the West Coast. In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the DHIP had a record-breaking 2020/2021 season presenting high-level competition to riders from hunter/jumper, equitation and dressage disciplines.
For the 2021/2022 season, DIHP has released an exciting season calendar showcasing 18 weeks of multi-discipline competition. In addition to their dressage schedule, which includes multiple weeks of FEI World Cup™ Final qualifying competitions, the schedule offers an expanded fall schedule with three FEI Jumping competitions and enhancements to the ever-popular Desert Circuit winter series. The fall schedule now includes hosting two Major League Show Jumping Tour events. DIHP will host an FEI CSI3* in November as part of the National Sunshine Series and two FEI CSI5* events in December during the two weeks of the Desert Holiday Series. The two events – which also include FEI CSI2* offerings – will showcase an innovative and exciting FEI 5* team competition that features some of the best riders in North America and beyond. The winter series will again include five weeks of FEI competition, two weeks of WCHR, and the second year of the $100,000 West Coast Hunter Spectacular.
“Phelps Media Group has always been passionate about representing the top equestrian events, as they are the lifeblood of our sport’s community,” said Lenore Phillips, president of Phelps Media Group. “The addition of the Desert International Horse Park to our family of clients is an incredibly proud moment for our team and we look forward to expanding the brand awareness of this world-class venue and event.”
“We are excited to begin working with Phelps Media Group this season. We are excited about telling the story around what we are doing at DIHP to a larger audience and Phelps is uniquely positioned to support us. They have great track record with some pretty special properties,” Steve Hankin, CEO of DIHP remarked.
