EquiJet Named Official Equine Air Transportation Provider of 2019 National Horse Show
Lexington, Ky. – Mar. 25, 2019 – EquiJet, the premier domestic and international equine transportation company, is thrilled to be returning as a 2019 sponsor of the National Horse Show, which will mark the company’s second year partnering with the historic show. This year’s National Horse Show will take place at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky from Oct. 25 to Nov. 3, 2019, and EquiJet will proudly serve as the Official Equine Air Transportation Provider as well as a prominent supporter of the popular equitation weekend.
“The entire team at EquiJet is proud to once again be a part of the National Horse Show, now in a more prominent role. After the success of last year’s event and the amazing feedback we heard, it was a no-brainer to grow our sponsorship for the 2019 National Horse Show, and we are excited to be able to play a role in such a beloved competition and high-quality event,” commented Bastian Schroeder, founder and president of EquiJet.
As the designated equine air transportation provider of the 2019 National Horse Show, EquiJet will support the equestrian community as it continues its mission of providing owners and riders with seamless top-notch domestic and international equine transportation. Additionally, EquiJet will reprise its role as a contributor to the equitation weekend that kicks off the horse show by providing all exhibitors with commemorative backpacks to remember the occasion. Known for its commitment to efficiency, horse safety and white glove service, EquiJet’s professional standards align perfectly with the National Horse Show, making the pair a perfect combination.
“We are thrilled to have the support of EquiJet as our Official Equine Air Transportation provider. EquiJet was an important sponsor for the event last year, and we are excited to welcome them back to the National Horse Show in a greater role in 2019,” said Jennifer Burger, president of the National Horse Show.
Founded in 1883, the National Horse Show is a staple on the equestrian calendar and the culmination of the east coast summer competitive season. For six consecutive years, the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame has named the National Horse Show the Horse Show of the Year, and the event organizers plans to continue that tradition with the help of dedicated sponsors like EquiJet. With $716,000 in prize money offered, the National Horse Show has been designated a CSI4*-W event by the FEI, and will host the highly-anticipated $225,000 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Lexington CSI4*. International Open Jumpers will compete for almost half a million dollars in prize money, while the top-rated hunter sections will vie for a total purse of $190,000.
