Proud Sponsor of Champion Equine Insurance Hunter & Jumper Style Awards
Wellington, FL – December 12, 2018 – Champion Equine Insurance will return as sponsor of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) for the ninth year during the 2019 season. One of the most successful equine insurance agencies in the horse sport industry and led by Laura Fetterman, Champion Equine Insurance will again present the popular Champion Equine Insurance Hunter & Jumper Style Awards each week of the 12-week circuit.
The style awards, presented by Fetterman, honor those hunter and jumper horses that possess a special presence in the show ring. One hunter and one jumper award will be presented each week in selected classes to be determined before the start of WEF competition.
The Hunter Style Award is awarded to the hunter whose style most exemplifies a show hunter based on form, movement, and way of going.
The Jumper Style Award is to be awarded to the jumper whose style best exemplifies a show jumper based on scope, rideability, technique, and competitive spirit.
Championship recipients will be selected from the 12 finalists per discipline and will be determined based on most consistent style demonstrated over the 12 weeks of WEF competition.
