East Dorset, VT—August 5, 2002—Luxury resort Equinox is the final Grand Prix Sponsor of the 2002 Vermont Summer Festival. The Equinox Resort & Spa, a four diamond resort in the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains, is the sponsor of the fifth and final $35,000 Grand Prix of the 2002 Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show circuit. The event will be held at 2:00 pm on the closing day of the show, August 11, 2002.

"The Equinox Hotel is a quintessential historic property, with the staff and services of the finest resort and I believe that many of our exhibitors have found it to be one of the best reasons to add the Vermont Summer Festival to their summer circuit" stated Dotty Ammerman, Vermont Summer Festival Executive Director. "We are excited to be a partner of this fine property and are pleased that the Equinox has rolled out the red carpet for our clients."

Gary Thulander, General Manager of the Equinox added, "Our sponsorship of the Vermont Summer Festival is further acknowledgment of the importance of the horse show clientele; we strive to give them first class, personal service. It has always been our priority to support community events that promote business and tourism in the region and we look forward to continuing our support of the Vermont Summer Festival.”

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.
