March 12, 2009 -- In celebration of its product launch in North America, CAVALOR, Inc., sponsored a series of events at this year's FTI Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Fla.
Headlining the events were a riding clinic and autograph session with world show jumping champion Jos Lansink of Belgium. Eight riders were invited to participate in the clinic at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. Riders were split into two groups. Riders in the first group were Lisa Zimmer of Wycoff, N.J., Ashley Charpetier of Ontario, Megan Abbott of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., Alissa Kinsey of Ft. Myer, Fla., and Samantha Herzog of Colts Neck, N.J. The second group consisted of riders Erica Kahn of Wellington, Fla., Richard Howley of Ireland, and Vanessa Robert of Montreal.
"Mr. Lansink taught me some very useful things to help me with my children's jumper," said Zimmer. "I really appreciate that the best interests of horses are as important to him as they are to me."
Prior to the clinic, CAVALOR hosted a ringside luncheon for riders and trainers to showcase the company's line of unique feeds. CAVALOR also sponsored a free autograph session with Lansink.
To culminate the activities during the launch events, CAVALOR made a cash donation in Lansink's honor to the Palm Beach Riding Academy. The Palm Beach Riding Academy was founded as a non-profit venture by Katherine Bellissimo to assist people interested in riding who may not be able to afford the sport. The academy draws support from some of the world's top riders who compete at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
