Social Events Add Flavor to 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show

Freehold, NJ – August 23, 2006 – The 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show was held last week from August 16-20 at East Freehold Park in New Jersey. As one of the oldest continuous equestrian events in the country, the horse show benefited the Jane H. and John Marshall Booker Cancer Center at Riverview Medical Center and offered a variety of exciting events for the entire family.

The community event attracted talented equestrians, sponsors, horse enthusiasts, hundreds of spectators, and children of all ages. Various social functions provided riders some time to relax and visit among friends, and gave spectators a chance to meet some of the grand prix professionals.

With delicacies provided by David’s World Famous Catering, horse show competitors enjoyed dinner and cocktails at the “Welcome to the Jersey Shore” annual exhibitors’ party on Saturday, August 19th. Family Day, also held on Saturday, presented kids the opportunity to experience horses and other animals first hand with pony rides and a petting zoo. Face painting and other activities added to the fun before the day’s final entertainment- the Doggie Costume Contest! Dogs of all shapes and sizes sparked laughter and applause as they paraded hilarious costumes for prizes awarded by Carol Stillwell.

The social events continued Sunday morning at 8:00 am with the traditional “Mimosa at Monmouth” party. Sponsored by B.J. and Robert Cassidy of Redbank, NJ, the Monmouth County Horse Show provided glasses of orange juice and champagne, which gave spectators, horse owners, and fans a fun kick start for the day.

With exciting equestrian competition, great special events, stellar shopping, and a deserved charity, the Monmouth County Horse Show was another grand success. Having earned over $600,000 for “Ride for Riverview,” this horse show remains a great stop on the show circuit for equestrians and a fun activity for community members.

Guests at the show included: Samantha and Leo Conroy, Jennifer Glass, Kim Tutor, Kiki Umla, Frank and Stacia Madden, Brianne and Clementine Goutal, Alexandra Arute, Scott Stewart, Ken Berkley, Frank and Mary Chapot, Mary Choate, Peter Howard, Gigi Stetler, Sara Becker, Jessie and Catherine Pasmore, Steve Sarafin, Susie Humes, Bruce and Jessica Springsteen, Philip and Mary Beth DeVita, David Distler, Eric Strauss, Tom Brennan, and Blake Alder.
