HorseShow.com, the revolutionary online horse show site, announces its support as a Silver Sponsor for the second annual Sidelines Tetrathlon Presented by Meadow View & The Riggio Family, to be held February 5, 2012 at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in West Palm Beach, FL. This event will benefit the Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF), an organization which provides financial assistance to equestrians and horsemen suffering from life-threatening illnesses and catastrophic injuries. The EAF helps qualified grant recipients with medical, rehabilitation and other essential expenses, such as food and housing, throughout their time of need.
The innovative Tetrathlon competition will focus around a Wild West theme, the "Gold Rush." Four riders from different disciplines (dressage, show jumping, reining, and polo) will participate on four different teams, and throughout the competition these riders will participate in a new discipline to score points for their team.
In addition to the thrilling equestrian competition, the event will feature the best of Palm Beach's restaurant fare and cocktails prepared by guest chefs, as well as both live and silent auctions, a saloon with flat-screen TV's to keep up with Super Bowl scores, and an after-party with live music and dancing. The evening will also feature the presentation of the inaugural Equestrian Aid Foundation Luminary Award to legendary horsewoman Jane Forbes Clark. Sarah B. Willeman will also be honored for her contribution to horse sports and the Equestrian Aid Foundation. To learn more or purchase tickets online, visit the EAF website www.equestrianaidfoundation.org.
