The $125,000 competition is the only equestrian event to be held on Palm Beach Island and is hosted at the Mar-a-Lago Club, the former Marjorie Merriweather Post Estate built in 1924 and purchased and restored by Donald Trump in 1985.
The event on Sunday will feature 35 of the world’s top riders in an FEI world ranking competition, including World Number Two Kent Farrington, two-time Olympic gold medalists Beezie Madden and McLain Ward, Olympic gold medalist Laura Kraut, New York’s Georgina Bloomberg, and rising star Jessica Springsteen.
There will be a red carpet entrance, Perrier-Jouët champagne, and a poolside Welcome Reception. A VIP experience borders the ring and looks out over the Intracoastal Waterway. Several luxury items will also be featured in this year’s live auction.
The co-chairpersons for the event are Paige Bellissimo, Ivanka Trump, and Georgina Bloomberg. Rolex returns as the presenting sponsor, and additional sponsors include Suncast, Land Rover, Carol Sollak PA of Engel & Völkers, Perrier-Jouët, Rosenbaum Mollengarden, PLLC, and Horseshoe Trail Farm.
