Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon Rescheduled For March 24, 2007

Wellington, FL – January 16, 2007 – In light of the recent outbreak of the Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1), organizers of this year’s Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon™ have rescheduled the event for Saturday, March 24, 2007.

The Sidelines Triathlon raises big bucks and big fun for charity. The Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF), which the triathlon supports, is dedicated to helping all equestrians with catastrophic illness in their time of need.

Seven years ago the Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon was created to raise awareness and money for EAF, as well as bring the horse community together to celebrate the disciplines of polo, dressage and show jumping.

Since then, the Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon™ has become the premier equestrian and social event during the Winter Equestrian Festival. It hosts some of the most successful equestrians in the world, including past Olympians, and is appropriate for spectators of all ages.

Robert Dover, president of EAF said, “Horse people are an integral part of the Wellington community and the EAF is an integral part of the horse world. We hope that this connection will encourage the folks living in and around Wellington to come out and show their support for this great cause. I promise everyone a full day of fun and excitement for the whole family!”

What: The Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon™ raises money for Equestrian Aid, a foundation dedicated to helping all equestrians in their time of need. Last year’s event raised more than $100,000.
