NEW IN 2017: Circuit Awards in Eight Divisions - Points Tallied After Spring Series Determining Current Leaders
San Juan Capistrano, CA - Blenheim EquiSports is proud to partner with a collection of outstanding sponsors this year. A select group, several of them new additions, have generously backed exciting new Circuit Awards that will be presented to riders who have accumulated the most points during the Blenheim Spring, Summer and Fall outdoor seasons. After a competitive spring, the current leaders are listed below.

Though the majority of the Circuit Awards will be presented in the fall during the International Jumping Festival (September 20-24), pony riders will celebrate their crowned circuit champions before the 4th of July holiday at the Blenheim Red, White & Blue Classic (June 28- July 2).

At the conclusion of the final pony event, Makoto Farm will present Circuit Awards to the highest placing small, medium, and large pony hunters, based on their performances throughout the four Pony Hunter Derbies hosted by Blenheim this year.

Come fall, more Classic winners from the hunter ring will be unveiled. From stable to home, barnstyle features unique equestrian collections and is pleased to present The 3'6" Amateur Owner Hunter Classic Circuit Award winner with a cooler and gift certificate.

Made in America, the line of exquisite apparel from Callidae can be worn both in and out of the show ring. The winner of the Callidae 3'3" Amateur Owner Hunter Classic Circuit Award will receive a $500 gift Callidae certificate.

"We are thrilled to participate with Blenheim EquiSports in honoring the riders participating in the shows throughout the spring and summer. There are so many talented riders in the 3'3" Amateur Owner Hunter division, and the weekly classics really bring out the best in those riders and their horses," Callidae founder Harriet Posner said. "While Showpark and the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park at San Juan Capistrano have long been equestrians' favorite venues, adding weekly and end-of-circuit prizes gives everyone more reason to look forward to competing."

The winner of the Adult Hunter Classic Circuit Award will go home with a Kastel Denmark jacket and shirt. With a Danish flare, the stylish attire has built-in sun protection, breathability, along with durability and quality. Showing support in the jumper ring as well, the Kastel Denmark 1.20m Modified Jr/Am Jumper Classic Circuit Award will provide two recipients, the highest placing junior rider and the highest placing amateur rider, with a stylish jacket and shirt.

"We are thrilled to partner with Blenheim EquiSports as a Circuit Sponsor this year," said Kastel Denmark's Twila Shakespeare. "The shows produced by Blenheim represent the best in show jumping. Kastel is pleased to support the horses and riders who excel in their sport. Kastel will give winners of the Classic and Circuit Awards certificates for our amazing UV protective shirts. We want the riders to feel the Kastel difference! They will definitely enjoy the comfort, colors, style and UV protection these shirts provide."

A junior and an amateur will each earn the EquiFit Front and Hind Custom D-Teq Horse Boots gift certificate that accompanies the the EquiFit 1.20m Jr/AO Jumper Classic Circuit Award.

Along with producing superior products, EquiFit has always been an avid sponsor of equestrian athletes and events, including the Racing Festival Grand Prix in July.

"It is of the utmost importance for us to support the horse shows and the organizations that are truly making a difference not only in the present but the future of the equestrian sports in the United States. We have been a long time supporter of Blenheim and are proud of the caliber of horse shows they manage," said Melissa Hamlet of EquiFit. "Their innovative thinking is imperative in continuing to move the sport forward. It takes a village to get to the ring, and we appreciate that Blenheim recognizes not only the horses and riders at all levels, but also the grooms, managers, trainers and owners that work behind the scenes to get the horses and riders to the ring looking, feeling and performing at their best."

In the jumper ring, the winner of the AA Platinum 1.10m Adult Jumper Classic Circuit Award will receive an AA Platinum MotionLite Competition Jacket gift certificate. An award-winning style, the machine washable MotionLite provides breathability and stretch, ideal for warmer days.

Providing the option to keep your horse's vaccine records up to date and stored securely without the need for paper, the Electronic Vet 1.40m Jr/AO Jumper Classic Circuit Award winner earns a $1,500 eVet gift certificate and cooler.

Blenheim EquiSports would like to thank all its sponsors for their support and generosity in rewarding riders for their consistency in the Classics and Derbies this season. Good luck to all as we gear up for Ranch & Coast this month and a superb summer season: June in San Juan Capistrano, July in Del Mar and both locations in August!
