Richard Schechter and Bainbridge Farm Host 124th National Horse Show & Family Festival Welcome Party

Wellington, FL - December 6, 2007 - Attendees of the 124th National Horse Show and Family Festival were welcomed to the winter season with an elegant cocktail party on Wednesday, Dec. 5, hosted by Jennifer Reid and Richard Schechter at their Bainbridge Farm.

More than 250 of the equestrian world's "Who's Who" turned out for the occasion and were greeted by Mr. Schechter, member of the National Horse Show Board of Directors, and Ms. Reid, who is a member of the Ladies Committee of the National Horse Show. Guests mingled in Schechter's exquisitely decorated home and around the pool, both of which celebrated a Christmas and equestrian theme.

While chatting and strolling about the home and patio, guests enjoyed the uniformed wait staff's prompt, non-stop service of champagne and haute cuisine hors d'oeuvres from Ken-Rose Catering. The fabulous menu items were a highlight of the evening and ranged from wild mushroom strudel with goat cheese with a cranberry citron cip and ahi tuna tartar in sesame wonton cones topped with wasabi cream and ginger to warm lobster bisque in demi tasse cups. Desserts were all hand-passed and included cheesecake lollipops and fresh berries in mini martini glasses with Grand Marnier sabayon.

The evening concluded with guests being treated to personalized gifts from the National Horse Show. Each attendee received a large, decadent dark chocolate square with the National Horse Show logo in white chocolate, wrapped and tied with an orange satin ribbon, the show's signature color.

Guests included Betty Jane Henry, member of the National Horse Show Ladies Committee; Eugene R. Mische, National Horse Show President; Mason Phelps, National Horse Show Chairman; Ralph and Holly Caristo, Danielle and Jimmy Torano, Susan Bloomberg, Elizabeth Hedley, Michael Whitlow, Molly Ashe Cawley, Nappy Tranter, Ashley and Joe Maguire Debbie and Steve Stephens, Mayor Tom Wenham and wife Regis, Lynn Coakley, Peggy and Jerry Jacobs, Mark and Katherine Bellissimo.
