Wellington, FL – December 4, 2015 – The organizers of the inaugural Wellington Masters, site of the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Wellington, announced today that the highly popular Taylor Harris Club will be recreated for the event to be held at the beautiful Deeridge Farms in Wellington, Florida. The competition runs from Thursday, Feb. 4 – Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016.

The international show jumping event will feature one of only seven East Coast qualifying events in the Longines FEI World Cup™Jumping North American league. In addition to the qualifier, the event will offer additional classes for both junior and amateur riders. The Deeridge Farms event is one of the two final legs of the Longines FEI World Cup™Jumping North American League, which began in August of this year across seven East and seven West coast venues in three countries: United States, Mexico and Canada. The 14 host events of the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League were selected after a rigorous screening process from a list of 25 applicants.
“It’s exciting to use our family’s farm to host the best event possible for the Longines FEI World Cup qualifier,” stated Charlie Jacobs when the selections were announced. “Part of creating a world-class experience is the hospitality. We are thrilled to have Taylor Harris not only supporting the show, but also providing the first-class hospitality with their popular Taylor Harris Club.”

“When we heard there was a strong possibility the World Cup qualifier was at risk, we wanted to do something to ensure it would stay here,” said Lou Jacobs. “It is important to the community, competitors and enthusiasts that we keep an event like this here. And now that the event is secured, we wanted to provide the utmost in comfort and hospitality for all our guests at Deeridge. The Taylor Harris Club will do just that.”

Taylor Harris Insurance Services has committed to provide and sponsor the beautiful club that will become the center for VIP hospitality throughout the week in February. Charlie and Lou Jacobs were instrumental in ensuring their vision which includes gourmet cuisine and elegant decor, provided by International Polo Club Catering powered by Aaron’s Catering of the Palm Beaches.

The Taylor Harris Club at the National Horse Show in Lexington, Kentucky, has met with rave reviews since its inception in 2011. Just last year at the FEI World Cup Las Vegas 2015, the Taylor Harris Club gained even more followers and was the talk of the Thomas and Mack Center for providing a fully immersive VIP hospitality experience during the finals.

“We are thrilled to join the Wellington Masters as the sponsor of the VIP Hospitality experience,” said Michael Taylor, the President of Taylor Harris Insurance Services. “We are excited to partner with the Wellington Masters for what is sure to be one of the best events of the season, and really bring a ‘Wow’ factor to attendees. We look forward to a week of brilliant competition, and an experience that everyone will remember for years to come.”

With a gorgeous, newly-designed, two-story enclosure with a bird’s eye view of the arena, the Taylor Harris Club at the Wellington Masters features ringside fine dining at the beautiful Deeridge Farms for an experience like no other. Access to the Taylor Harris Club at the Wellington Masters includes epicurean delights and sophisticated ambience and entrance to the equestrian competitions.

The magnificent setting couldn’t be more beautiful situated among 300 lush acres at one of Wellington’s most gorgeous estates. Stadium Jumping, Inc., the management team, along with the Jacobs family has designed the competition to showcase its most important feature – the horse – with a single, beautifully maintained grass grand prix field. “We look forward to our spectators and exhibitors enjoying the finest quality competition from the incredible views of the jumping field at the Taylor Harris Club,” said Michael Morrissey, president of Stadium Jumping, Inc.

VIP guests will be treated to an extraordinary ’boutique’ five-star experience, complete with first-class cuisine, beverage service and VIP preferred parking and amenities. This exclusive VIP hospitality reflects the care, attention to detail and dedication to equestrian sport that is embodied by the Jacobs family and Deeridge Farms.

Tables of six are $7,500 for the full competition. It is important to get your reservations in early as a complete sellout of the Taylor Harris Club is expected to happen quickly.
