Taylor Harris Insurance Services Remains a Dedicated Sponsor at the Showplace Spring Spectacular

Wayne, IL - June 12, 2009 -Taylor Harris Insurance Services (THIS) is a nationwide company that offers services to equestrians of all disciplines and shares a wealth of knowledge in the equestrian industry. THIS has chosen to help support the industry through the sponsorship of equestrian events throughout the country, and the Showplace Spring Spectacular, held at the Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL, is one horse show that receives their very generous sponsorship.

Taylor Harris Insurance Services, Inc. (THIS) is an equine insurance agency based in Middleburg, VA, that provides specialized insurance services for all types of equine risks. THIS policies cover show hunters and jumpers, event and dressage horses, and thoroughbred racing and breeding stock. THIS also offers farm package (property and liability insurance) care, custody and control insurance, and liability insurance for equine operations. As horsemen themselves, the directors, staff, and agents of THIS have a wealth of experience in all facets of the horse industry.

This will be the third year that THIS has teamed up with Showplace Productions for sponsorship, and as a platinum sponsor they have contributed to numerous classes, including the Thursday afternoon $10,000 Open Jumper Welcome Stake. THIS is also the sponsor of the $10,000 Leading Junior/A-O Rider Series.

"We got started through a friend who knows Pat Boyle very well," said Michael Taylor, Director and President of THIS. "He said that this was a great show that would be a great niche for us. We concentrate on sponsoring Junior and Children's events, and this show has some great young riders."

THIS does quite a bit of sponsorship at both small and large horse shows, sponsoring the National Children's Medal finals, which are held at the Capital Challenge Horse Show, as well as Junior Weekend in Harrisburg and the ASPCA Maclay National Championship in Syracuse, among others.

"We try to put some money back into the sport," Harris explained. "I think it is just a good way to start to support people who are entering the business for the first time. I very much like the Lamplight show as well, and it is very easy on the eye. I think that Pat Boyle does a fantastic job producing the horse show, and I think that people really enjoy his way of doing things."

"Taylor Harris Insurance Services is a company that is very generous to the equestrian sport, and we could not be happier to have them supporting our horse show," said Showplace Productions' President Pat Boyle. "Their generous sponsorship is a great asset to our events, and we thank them for their continued involvement."

The 2009 Showplace Spring Spectacular has one week of competition left, continuing through June 14 at the Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL. The competition's feature event will be on Saturday afternoon when the Grand Prix Ring will host the $50,000 Showplace Productions Grand Prix.
