Phelps Media Group, Inc. and PhelpsSports.com To Sponsor Dallas Harvest Horse Show and Habitat for Horses Fundraisers

Wellington, FL - October 13, 2008 - The Dallas Harvest Horse Show in Tyler, Texas is known as a high profile event that is unsurpassed in the hospitality department. Aside from daily complimentary breakfast, free Judge's Clinic, free dinner receptions and more, Dallas Harvest Horse Show has some of the best sponsors in the business.

Thanks to the generous nature of Mason Phelps, Jr., the founder and President of Phelps Media Group, Inc. and PhelpsSports.com, both organizations have made large contributions to the horse show and fundraising events for Habitat for Horses. Phelps Media Group, Inc. is the number one Equestrian Public Relations firm in the country; PhelpsSports.com is the leading equestrian news website that offers up to the minute equestrian happenings, results and information.

"We are so excited to become a part of this amazing event," said Phelps. "It is our pleasure to be supporting such an important organization and horse show. It is not everyday that we get the opportunity to give back to a side of the equine community that needs our help, and it is our honor to do so. Habitat for Horses is an organization that gives renewed hope to the animals we love so much. We want to be a part of that."

A silent auction will take place at the Dallas Harvest Horse Show. Proceeds from this event will benefit Habitat for Horses. Phelps Media Group, Inc. has donated a three month Public Relations package for the months of January, February, and March. This package is estimated to be worth over $15,000. In addition, over 30 items will be available, including two custom saddles donated by Cheryl Crow, designer equestrian jewelry, clothing, sculptures, artwork and more.

In addition to donations from Phelps Media Group, Inc., PhelpsSports.com will also be making major contributions to the horse show. With every championship awarded, PhelpsSports.com has generously donated a year's free subscription to the website.

"We have decided to offer this special treat to each championship at the show," said Phelps. "Winning a championship at a prestigious AA rated horse show like Dallas Harvest is extremely difficult. Lots of hard work was put into being the best and we want to make their triumph that much sweeter."

Another special treat is in store for attendees at the catered Saturday Evening Exhibition Dinner and Team Calcutta. Leading this event and acting as auctioneer will be Olympian and equestrian Mason Phelps. Competitors in the grand prix will be made into teams. These teams will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. On Sunday, whoever has the winning rider from the grand prix on their team wins 50% of the pot; the other 50% will go to Habitat for Horses.

All proceeds raised from the fundraiser events will directly benefit Habitat for Horses. Dallas Harvest Horse Show is an AA rated event, known for its hospitality, special events and top competition. A "From the Judge's Perspective" USJHA Judges Clinic will be held free of charge for exhibitors, a silent auction, a Hunter Derby Reception sponsored by Tyler Plastic Surgery, a "Team" Calcutta Exhibition Dinner, and a Sunday Grand Prix Brunch are also on the schedule. Classes include the $25,000 Dallas Harvest Grand Prix benefiting Habitat for Horses, the $15,000 ASG Software Solutions/USHJA International Hunter Derby, the $5,000 Jumper Classic, the $3,000 Welcome Stake sponsored by Nordic Lights Farm & The Bruheim Family, and the $2,500 Children's/Adult Jumper Classic.
