Why Sponsor?



The Garden State Horse Show, presented by the Junior Essex Troop, is an iconic New Jersey equestrian show jumping event. Founded in 1951 it has had unprecedented show entries, spectators and accolades. 

Elite equestrian athletes, horse owners, young riding hopefuls and enthusiastic fans gather to enjoy the extraordinary show jumping event. Amongst a fanfare of family-­friendly activities, spectators delight in shopping on boutique row, equestrian celebrity sightings and more. 

Equestrian consumers represent a discerning and attractive target audience. Educated and affluent families embrace the equestrian lifestyle and the professionals they hire often drive purchasing decisions for their clientele. 

Equestrians have proven loyalty to organizations that support their common interests. Other factors, including age and profession, make them a perfect target audience for companies offering products and services for an upscale market. 

Sponsorship of Garden State Horse Show has a charitable component. As part of a dedicated mission to help those in our community, the Garden State Horse Show has donated over $250,000 to local organizations over the years. We have helped university equestrian programs and organizations that help people and animals in need and at risk. Sponsorship helps us continue to support them. And, because Garden State Horse Show is a nonprofit, your sponsorship is tax-deductible.
