Fairfield Renews Support of EQUUS Foundation and Horse Welfare

The 2015 Fairfield County Hunt Club June Benefit Horse Show will again be the venue for the EQUUS Foundation's annual benefit luncheon on Saturday, June 20, 2015. Open to the public free of charge, the show will be held Tuesday-Saturday, June 16-20, 2015, on the grounds of the Fairfield County Hunt Club in Westport, Connecticut. The show will culminate with the EQUUS Foundation benefit held in association with Family Fun Day and the $25,000 Grand Prix presented by Wells Fargo Advisors LLC & George N. Venizelos, Managing Director-Investments, of the Westport branch.

"We are deeply grateful to the Fairfield County Hunt Club for their continued support," said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President. "We look forward to working with the Horse Show Co-Chairs Benedicte Berg and Sean Hogan to make the 2015 show the best one yet!"

The June Show was voted the Member's Choice Horse Show for Zone 1 by the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) for the third year in a row. The June Show is also one of a select group of horse shows of the more than 2,600 horse shows in the United States that is recognized as a Heritage Competition by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF). This is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a horse show - a distinction reserved for horse shows not only dedicated to technical excellence but also philanthropy and community involvement.
