May 26, 2012 – ST JOHNS ISLAND, SC – Bob Bell, President of the Classic Company, is happy to welcome NickerDoodles as the official sponsor of the inaugural $25,000 Hunter Pony Derby Classics that will premiere this summer. The first classic will be held during the Atlanta Summer Classic Week II (June 20-24) at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, GA and the second at the Charleston Summer Classic Week II (July 17-21).
“Classic Company is thrilled to have NickerDoodles sponsoring these special and historic pony events! No doubt the ponies too will be happy to have these great treats available,” Bell said.
NickerDoodles is a handcrafted easily digestible treat made from oats, wheat bran, barley, corn and molasses that ponies and horses alike can’t get enough of. Virginia Milam, who owns Khaki Run Horse Farm in Summerfield, NC, had been looking for a new venture that would still allow her to remain faithful to her passion, horses, when she discovered NickerDoodles. She was so impressed with the product she sought out the owner and bought the company.
