Equinox Resort and Spa Continues Support of the Vermont Summer Festival as a 2004 Grand Prix Sponsor

East Dorset, VT—April 20, 2004—The Equinox Resort and Spa, one of the premier properties in the Rock Resort portfolio, has joined forces with the Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show in becoming a Grand Prix Sponsor for the third consecutive year. The five week long event will be held at the Harold Beebe Farm in East Dorset, VT, July 14 – August 15, 2004.

“The Vermont Summer Festival exhibitors have been enjoying the fine staff and services of the Equinox Hotel for years, but are now experiencing the beautiful Gleneagles Golf Course and the new Avanyu Spa during their free time,” stated Dotty Ammerman, Vermont Summer Festival Executive Director. “While our competitors love the rural nature of the Manchester area, they also look for luxury and first-rate amenities in their accommodations.”

“It is a priority at the Equinox to support community events that promote business and tourism in the region, which makes this partnership a natural,” added Courtney Lowe, Sales and Marketing Director of the Equinox Resort. “We look forward to providing the horse show clientele first class, personal service again this year and are prepared to customize their stay with activities ranging from our Off-Road Driving School to courses in Falconry.”

The Vermont Summer Festival is New England’s largest “AA” rated hunter/jumper horse show circuit. This year’s event includes five USET-recognized $35,000 Grand Prix and five $10,000 Mini Prix.

Each of the five weeks will also feature a $10,000 Show Jumping Hall Of Fame High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper class, part of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series which determines which junior and amateur/owner riders will qualify to ride at the 2004 National Horse Show. There will also be Marshall & Sterling and North American League (NAL) Child/Adult Classics and NAL Open Speed classes.
