Asbury, New Jersey (October 22, 2016) – Life and competition around Olympian Nona Garson’s The Ridge Farm just got a bit more delicious as Pony Up Horse Treats has stepped up to join their team of sponsors, beginning with the Asbury Classic II, held October 20 at The Ridge at Riverview in Asbury, New Jersey. As competitors and clients at The Ridge strive for excellence in the equitation, hunter, and jumper arenas, their horses’ hard work will be rewarded by the sweet taste of Pony Up. Making life a little sweeter for horses and riders is a major focus of Pony Up’s, and with their caramel taste, crunchy texture, and organic nutrients, the all-natural equine delicacies have become a favorite of equines and equestrians.

The Ridge, which is based out of New Jersey in the summer and Wellington in the winter, hosts a unique and diverse show circuit owned and organized by some of the industry’s top names, including USA Olympic rider Nona Garson. With a resume that includes the 1998 World Championships and 2000 Olympic games, wins at the Nations Cup Finals at Spruce Meadows, and multiple leading lady rider titles at Aachen, Royan, Gijon, and Helsinki, Garson founded The Ridge as an elite hunter, jumper, and equitation paradise for riders of all levels. Her hands on experience at the top international levels and effective teaching style make her a sought after clinician and coach. Along with a team of industry experts, she launched The Ridge’s show circuits, which include the Spring Series, Summer Spectacular, Asbury Classics, and Palm Beach Series, as well as a number of schooling shows. In their design, the shows were meant to provide a haven to nurture young horses and developing riders on an elite circuit with world-class amenities paired with a laid back, relaxed atmosphere.

“All of The Ridge’s shows are created with the horse in mind, from our open in-gate policy to the challenging but practicable course designs,” said Garson. “Especially in the debut of our 2017 Palm Beach Series, we want to make showing less of a strain on horses and humans alike. With the addition of Pony Up to our sponsor roster, we are excited to add a treat horses love to reward everything they offer to us as riders.”

This philosophy of putting the horses first, which has defined Garson’s training and show manager history, is a perfect compliment to Pony Up’s passion for the equine and their quest to perfect the horse treat. The brand, which was born from over a decade of love for the horse and horse sport, combines the sweet, satisfying texture and multiple health benefits of a traditional Colombian horse treat that has been a favorite for generations. The sweet, crunchy treats are a natural source of vitamins and minerals, and act as a natural energy source as well as a perfect reward. Each piece is handcrafted on an eco-friendly and self-sustaining farm in the mountains of Villeta.

“Our product is derived from the belief that the effort, nobility, and commitment found in the equine should be recognized and rewarded,” stated Manuel Restrepo of Pony Up Horse Treats. “Nowhere are these equine qualities more pronounced than in the competition arena, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the passion of Pony Up to The Ridge Farm and their competitors.”
