Wellington, FL - Premier Equestrian is pleased to announce their sponsorship of Todd Minikus, a strong teaming of a top rider with a top supplier of equestrian products. Minikus has won the American Grand Prix Association Budweiser Grand Prix of Indianapolis five times, the 2001 Rolex/U.S. Equestrian Team Show Jumping Championship, and competed on six Nation's Cup Teams and in five FEI World Cup Show Jumping Finals. In the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he served as the Alternate for the U.S. Equestrian Team Olympic Show Jumping Squad. During week three of the 2014 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival, Minikus and Quality Girl was one of the winners in the $34,000 Ruby et Violette WEF Challenge Cup Round 3. Concluding the 2014 competition, Minikus and Babalou 41 won the $100,000 Suncast® 1.50m Championship Jumper Series Final. {C}

Minikus keeps a busy schedule, competing regularly while training approximately 25 horses, green to grand prix. He enjoys working with horses at all ages and experience levels.


Minikus attributes his great success in the ring to hard work and pays close attention to his horses, looking out even during routine grooming for signs of soreness or unusual responses so he can alleviate any ache or pain his horses might be feeling. "I like being hands on, then I can get a real feel for what is going on with them."

Competing and training with his equestrian partners is an important part of the big picture for Minikus. “There’s a huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes, and like racecar driving or any other team sport…the team is the key."

Having the right horse and the right equipment makes a huge difference.

Minikus was thrilled with the new jump course Premier provided. “We love our Premier Equestrian jumps and can’t thank Premier enough,” he said. “Our Florida farm has harsh climate conditions, and it can be brutal for our equipment. Wood jumps rot and mold grows within days. Aluminum jumps are pricey and heavy. The jump equipment we received from Premier is ideal: very durable, safe, and maintenance free. Their product has restored our faith in PVC jumps!”
