Jacksonville Winter Series - Week Two Set To Get Underway!

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Greetings Everyone,

Week 1 of the Jacksonville Winter Series was an absolute success and we have two jam packed weeks left.  The series started off with a bang this past week with the $31,500 Welcome Class & the $100,000 Green Cove Springs CSI2*-W sponsored by Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club.  Sponsors, exhibitors and fellow horse enthusiasts gathered in the stands, or enjoyed food, beverages & the heaters in the Marques VIP Tent.
This week, the Jacksonville National will be no less short on excitement.  Friday, January 21, 2011 features the Bridlebourne Stables $3,500 Gambler’s Choice at 7:00pm.  Saturday, January 22, 2011, the Jacksonville Winter Series is very excited to host it’s inaugural USHJA International Hunter Derby.  Sunday, January 23, 2011 will feature a $25,000 Grand Prix and Luncheon to benefit Hope Therapy & Therapeutic Riding in North Florida.  Additional information about Hope Therapy & Sunday’s benefit is attached.  We truly hope you will take part in all the weekend’s events and support such a worthy cause.

Please make note of the attached revised time schedule, which is also available at www.nfhja.com under the “Shows” page.  Please note that stalls for week 3 are quickly filling up.  If you are interested in attending, please call the horse show office at 904.284.1579 to reserve a stall as soon as possible.

We would love for you to join us at the Marques at Green Cove Springs to watch all of the weekend’s most exciting activities.  Wristbands to the Marques at Green Cove Springs VIP Tent can be purchased through the horse show office for $40/person/weekend.  A limited number of tables can be purchased for $350/week.  Wristbands will admit each participant access to all weekend activities and parties in the sponsor tent, and include dinner and drinks Friday evening, Saturday evening and the Hope Therapy Benefit Luncheon on Sunday.  The tent is heated, seating is open and food and drinks will be available.
