Lamplight Equestrian Center
When I purchased Lamplight Equestrian Center last year, my mission as an avid amateur equestrian was not only to restore the rich heritage that makes Lamplight one of the most distinguished horseshow facilities in America, but also to make significant improvements to the facility, the grounds and the management in order to create the ultimate equestrian experience. Many of my fondest memories came from the time I spent at Lamplight as a competitor and now, it is my goal to share the passion and beauty of Lamplight with other equestrians from around the world.
During the past year, we have primarily focused our attention on the facility itself, which has undergone over a million dollars in improvements starting with the footing in the arenas. Five of Lamplight’s eight arenas have been completely resurfaced with GGT Footing, which provides the optimum foundation for jumping, dressage and equestrian sport. As a rider, I understand the risks associated with less-than-perfect footing, and I know trainers and owners alike will appreciate the great deal of expense and care that went into providing our exhibitors with the best possible footing.
Secondly, we have an impeccable new management team in place to ensure the horse show experience at Lamplight is beyond compare. Lamplight’s highly anticipated 2014 Equifest I and II are now under the leadership of highly respected USEF Jumper Judge and Course Designer, Allen Rheinheimer, who has contributed to a multitude of the nation’s most prestigious shows such as the Hampton Classic, Devon and Washington International. The Dressage events at Lamplight are guided by Lloyd Landkamer who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from events such as the Alltech/FEI World Equestrian Games, USEF Dressage Festival of Champions, the USEF Selection Trials and many more.
In conclusion, we engaged the cutting-edge team at www.EqGraphics.com to transform our entire website and lead the promotional and creative direction for Lamplight and Equifest. EQ Graphics is unmatched for bringing new innovation and modern technology into the equine industry, which will be a tremendous benefit to our exhibitors, vendors and sponsors. Our new website will continue to evolve rapidly throughout the coming weeks, so please make sure to check back regularly and stay informed by following us on Facebook, joining our newsletter and marking your calendars for the exciting upcoming events at Lamplight.
I look forward to personally greeting you at one of the next shows and I hope the magic of Lamplight will lead to several of your fondest memories, like it did for me.
