Lake Placid Horse Shows Welcome Major Sponsors
Devoucoux and Equine Insurance Services/Great American Return as Grand Prix Sponsors

Lake Placid, NY – February 12, 2016 – The Lake Placid Horse Shows are excited to welcome Devoucoux and Equine Insurance Services/Great American back as sponsors of this year’s two featured Grand Prix classes. Thanks to the support of the horse shows’ sponsors, the 2016 Lake Placid Horse Shows Presented by Sea Shore Stables, LLC will be awarding over half-a-million dollars in prize money!

The Lake Placid Horse Show will run June 28-July 3, highlighted by the $75,000 Devoucoux Grand Prix of Lake Placid on Sunday, July 3. The I Love New York Horse Show will follow on July 5-July 10, featuring the $100,000 Equine Insurance Services/Great American Grand Pix on Saturday, July 9.

“We are so grateful for the continuous support of both of these major sponsors,” said Richard M. Feldman, Chairman of the Lake Placid Horse Shows. “It’s been such a blessing to have such incredible and dedicated sponsors that return to the Lake Placid Horse Shows each year!”

Top French saddle company, Devoucoux, is the title sponsor of the $75,000 Devoucoux Grand Prix of Lake Placid. “We are delighted to continue our participation with the Lake Placid Horse Shows once again,” said TJ Campbell, General Manager of Devoucoux Inc.

Devoucoux saddles are the perfect combination of tradition and innovation. The company started off in 1985 in the south west of France, in the Basque Country when Jean- Michel Devoucoux, an equestrian himself, could not find a saddle to meet the needs of him and his horses. On a mission to create the best possible saddles for horse and rider, Devoucoux now has over 18 models for every Olympic discipline.

To this day Devoucoux still sets the standards for greatness in the industry and is ever innovating to bring the best possible products to their customers. With their new D3D panels, you can’t beat Devoucoux when it comes to the horse's comfort and rider's performance. The D3D technology uses pro-comfort foam, which improves weight distribution, provides perfect balance, unrivaled sensations, dynamics, and interactivity. Devoucoux is now the only saddle company using pure all Vegetal Leather which is softer, stronger, and better for the environment.

Equine Insurance Services is the proud sponsor of the $100,000 Equine Insurance Services/Great American Grand Prix. Equine Insurance takes pride in giving back to the industry they love through sponsorships. “We are delighted that Equine Insurance Services will be returning as a sponsor this year,” said Mr. Feldman.

Randy Levesque of Equine Insurance Services is proud to support the Lake Placid Horse Show as an amateur-owner exhibitor and sponsor of the I Love New York Horse Show’s $75,000 Grand Prix with Great American Insurance Group. "Lake Placid is easily one of my favorite horse shows for its scenic location, exhibitor friendly facility, remarkable show staff and Mr. Feldman’s presence which brings a special tradition to each award presentation,” said Levesque. “My wife and I always enjoy Lake Placid greatly and are grateful for the opportunity to sponsor this extraordinary horse show."

Equine Insurance Services is committed to providing the best and most affordable liability, mortality and major medical insurance options for horse owners, riders and equine industry professionals. Their customer service offers 24/7 access to the owner for all your questions, concerns and claims because horse owners need that kind of insurance.
