A Letter from Equestrian Sport Productions COO and Show Manager David Burton, Jr.

Dear ESP Exhibitors,

As many of you have heard, yesterday Florida Governor DeSantis announced that he is allowing Palm Beach County to enter "Phase 1" of reopening businesses. After reviewing our extensive protocols and the WHO mitigation score classifying Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP) horse show operations at a very low risk, the Village Of Wellington stated early this week that they would support our shows starting back in "Phase 1." We appreciate your patience and understanding that we have been reluctant to put out much information regarding our planned events until we had this level of assurance that we could move forward. We are actively finalizing our updated ESP Spring Prize List to publish online as soon as final USEF license approvals have been issued.
We are currently planning to run two schooling show events on May 22-24 and May 29-31, followed by three straight weeks of USEF “A” Rated competitions along with three USEF Local Rated Wednesday Equitation days. A link to all of the schedule drafts can be found here.
