Equestrian Triathlon Set For Feb. 11

The World Championship Equestrian Triathlon will be held Sunday, Feb. 11 at 6 p.m. at Deeridge Farms in Wellington. The family friendly competition will feature top polo, hunter/jumper and dressage athletes come together on one showground with a twist — athletes do not compete in their own sports.

Proceeds will benefit the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington, which provides services during non-school hours, as well as summer camp opportunities, to nearly 600 boys and girls from ages 6 to 18.

Serving as co-chairs of the event are Neil S. Hirsch and Kathleen Gannon-Ledsome.

“This is a fun and thrilling way to showcase the world-class equestrian talent in the area while raising critical funds for underserved children at the Wellington Boys & Girls Club,” Gannon-Ledsome said. “Neil and I are excited to be a part of this wonderful event and give back to the community.”

Athletes include Heather Caristo, Meagan Davis, Candace King, Christoff Koschel, Chris Vahn Martel, Martin Pepa, Brandon Phillips, Facundo Pieres, Gonzalito Pieres and Nic Roldan.

General admission is $25, and VIP admission is $150, and includes a buffet dinner. Musical entertainment will include DJ Adam Lipson and the Flyers. Sponsorship opportunities and reserved seating are available. For sponsorship information and tickets, visit www.bgcpbc.org.
