Palm Beach Masters Series Returns To Deeridge Farms In 2019

The Palm Beach Masters Series will feature top-level show jumping at Deeridge Farms in Wellington.

The world’s best horses and riders will be returning to Deeridge Farms in Wellington this winter for the expanded 2019 Palm Beach Masters Series, featuring three of show jumping’s biggest events.

The highly anticipated world-class competitions include the Palm Beach Masters CSI4*-W featuring the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Wellington, the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup of the United States and the Deeridge Derby.

The Palm Beach Masters Series hosts top international equestrian competitors from across the U.S. and abroad. Beginning with one elite competition in 2016, the series has since grown.

The show grounds are located at the magnificent Deeridge Farms, situated in the heart of Wellington. The events’ picturesque location, unrivaled hospitality, custom-built jumping rings and world-class facilities guarantee a unique experience for riders and spectators.

Lou Jacobs co-founded the series along with his siblings Charlie Jacobs and Katie Robinson.

“We are thrilled to kick off another Palm Beach Masters Series season. From the outset, our goal was to ensure that Wellington is a favorite destination for the highest levels of horse sport,” he said. “With the World Cup-qualifying masters, the derby, and now the added honor of hosting the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup of the United States, we remain steadfast in our commitment. Above all else, we hope to engage and inspire future generations of riders and equestrian fans.”

The Palm Beach Masters CSI4*-W featuring the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Wellington will take place Jan. 30 through Feb. 3.

The Palm Beach Masters CSI4*-W will showcase exhilarating competition from start to finish. The week’s featured event is the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Wellington, one of the final two East Coast qualifiers in the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup North American League, where the top names in the sport will vie for top prize money and a chance to qualify for the 2019 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Daniel Coyle of Ireland won last year’s Longines FEI Jumping World Cup competition at Deeridge Farms aboard Cita. “This is an amazing event, he said. “The conditions could not be any better; the footing is perfect and being here is just a fantastic experience.”

The Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup of the United States is set for Feb. 14-17.

This CSIO5* competition will be hosted annually at Deeridge Farms through the year 2021. The Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup, celebrating its 110th year in 2019, features international teams made up of the world’s most talented horses and riders. The Nations Cup at Deeridge Farms will be the only qualifier in the U.S. for the 2019 Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final that matches the top qualifying teams from around the world. It will also include FEI Jumping Nations Cup youth competitions (Young Rider, Junior and Children’s) to showcase the next generation of jumpers.

Returning for its third year is the Deeridge Derby from Feb. 28 through March 3. It is a USEF nationally rated show where the nation’s most elegant hunter horses take center stage to compete in prestigious hunter classes highlighted by the highly competitive $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby.

Victoria Colvin, the winner of last year’s USHJA International Hunter Derby, raved about the experience of riding at Deeridge Farms. “It’s so beautiful here,” she said. “It’s really great to be able to jump on grass. The footing is excellent, and it’s a blast to be in a big galloping field that feels like the old-style hunters.”

Events are hosted at the spectacular Deeridge Farms. Award-winning landscaping surrounds the custom-built show grounds and the facilities that host the series, which include masterfully created competition arenas — a Grand Prix turf arena and an all-weather sand arena. Additionally, there are two Bermuda grass schooling arenas, one designated for FEI and the other for non-FEI competitors. There is an all-weather schooling arena adjacent to the competition arena, as well as an all-weather schooling arena located near the stables.

The VIP Club at the Palm Beach Masters Series offers a distinctive, two-story venue for watching the classes in either competition arena. Spectators are treated to special amenities and a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.
