NEW PESSOA SERIES SUPPORTED BY GFS FOR YOUNG RIDERS

NEW PESSOA SERIES SUPPORTED BY GFS FOR YOUNG RIDERS

A new series supported by Walsall based GFS, a leading manufactures of equestrian equipment, is set to launch in Spring 2007 with a specific focus on Young Riders and their development.

The Pessoa Series, supported by GFS will span six events with an Open 1.40m class at each venue. Scheduled as an Open class at each of the qualifiers, there will be a league table in which the highest placed Young Riders within the competition will be allocated league points qualifying them for the final at the BSJA/Scope Festival of Show Jumping.

In addition to a generous prize fund across all competitions, the winner of both the final and the league table will also be awarded a Pessoa Saddle. With the focus of the series being on assisting with the development of our Young Riders, the winner of the league table will also win a weeks training with Rodrigo Pessoa, three times winner of the World Cup and Olympic gold medallist.

“As sole distributors for the Pessoa Brand in the UK we were very keen to assist British Show Jumping both in terms of competition sponsorship and also in respect of development and training. It was with this in mind that we were delighted when Rodrigo Pessoa suggested a training bursary for the winner of the league table” explained Geoff Fieldhouse, founder and owner of GFS.

Maria Clayton, for British Show Jumping commented “We are extremely grateful to GFS for their support of the Pessoa Series. It has been an absolute pleasure piecing together this series alongside Geoff and the rest of his team at GFS. Their understanding of our sport and the flexibility they have shown in assisting us to meet our goals in terms of Junior and Young Rider development has been second to none. This, accompanied with the enthusiasm they have shown is something we just can’t thank them enough for”.

A view mirrored by David Broome, Chairman of the Development and International committee who commented “This series presents a once in a lifetime opportunity for one of our up and coming riders. Without doubt Rodrigo Pessoa is the most successful and stylish rider of the modern era. This is an exciting series for our Young Riders and one that we believe will be extremely popular”.
