Hillary Dobbs, winner of 30+ Grand Prix and youngest rider to earn over $1 Million in career prize money ready to partner with show jumping lovers around the world, with Marengo.
WESTPORT, CT – March 19, 2013 – Hillary Dobbs, international show jumping champion, will host “Champagning”, a cocktail event to celebrate the launch of her Dobbs Show Jumping syndicate on March 28, 2013 in the Gallery at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida. The proceeds of the event will benefit the EQUUS Foundation.
Building upon her success representing the USA in International Nations Cups and Grand Prix, the Harvard University graduate is now poised to partner with strategic investors to build a world class team of show jumping horses for the next phase of her professional career.
Celebrity Stylist Engie Hassan, a Contributing Editor for High Fashion Magazine, will be covering the “Champagning” scene on March 28. Show Jumpers Georgina Bloomberg, Brianne Goutal and Cassie Herman are just a few of the notable members of the Host Committee for the Champagning cocktail event that will include the elite of the Wellington community. Guests will also include Dobbs’ fellow area alumni members of the Harvard Club of the Palm Beaches.
Through the generous support of sponsors that include Roaring Thunder Media, Parlanti USA, Reserveage Organics, First Republic Bank, Dore Designs and Status Luxury Group, guests of “Champagning” will enjoy a wonderful evening of champagne, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the beautiful Gallery venue. “Champagning” will showcase some of the top champagne brands in the world, thanks to event sponsor, Status Luxury Group (SLG), a global concierge and lifestyle management company dedicated to providing the highest quality of personalized service while transcending client expectations.
Along with her success in the Grand Prix ring as a rider, Dobbs is also considered to have a great set of eyes to find and develop horses to train to become world class Show Jumpers. Dobbs Show Jumping plans to offer partners the opportunity to work with Dobbs as she identifies, purchases and trains a select group of horses based upon her past successes with her champion show jumping horses “Quincy B,” “Corlett,” and “Marengo”. The show jumping horses acquired and trained by Dobbs Show Jumping will be ridden by Dobbs as she plans to compete at the highest level in Grand Prixs in the USA and around the world.
When asked about the rationale for launching Dobbs Show Jumping, Hillary Dobbs stated, “As I get ready to enter the next phase of my Show Jumping career, it is my goal to build a world class syndicate to allow all of my supporters through the years to join me as partners to build a talented stable of horses that will allow me to compete in the top Grand Prixs.” Dobbs also added, “As we now start to see higher and higher purses for US Show Jumping, there is a tremendous business opportunity through Dobbs Show Jumping for my partners and me to share in the success of finding the best horses to allow us to continue to compete at the highest level and build a valuable stable of world class show jumpers.”
“We congratulate Hillary on the launch of Dobbs Show Jumping and look forward to her continued success as one of the top Show Jumpers in the world. We greatly appreciate her deep rooted commitment to charitable efforts that not only advance the equestrian sport, but also ensure the well-being of horses and enable the therapeutic use of horses for those with special needs,” said Lynn Coakley, president of EQUUS Foundation.
Gianluca Caron, President and CEO of Parlanti USA, says, “We have been a longtime supporter of Hillary, and are proud to help her launch the next phase of her professional career. We look forward to a continued relationship with Hillary and Dobbs Show Jumping.”
