WESTPORT, CT - December 23, 2011 - 2008 Equestrian Idol Ki-Juan Minors sent his holiday greetings to The EQUUS Foundation in song at http://soundcloud.com/blaze-hunter-1/chestnuts-by-ki-juan-minors. What better than to share this holiday spirit with horse lovers everywhere!
Ki, along with Idols Taylor Hughes, Jen White Kane, Brian Lookabill and reigning winner Robert Orthwein, will be performing a musical cabaret on Saturday, February 11, 2012, at the $125,000 Grand Prix FEI CSI W presented by Spy Coast Farm at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida.
"It's sure to be a crowd pleaser, " said Lynn Coakley, President, The EQUUS Foundation. "We arranged the complimentary performance because we decided to hold off on having our Equestrian Idol event in 2012, after a five-year successful run, and wanted to continue to share the great talent of our Equestrian Idols with the horse show going public. We will be focusing our energy on the Fete Cheval, which will be held on Friday, March 9, 2012 and hosted by Spy Coast Farm at the Winter Equestrian Festival, featuring cocktails and dinner in the International Club and Equestrian Games on Horseback in the International Arena."
The EQUUS Foundation raises its funds almost entirely from event attendance, enabling the award of 70 grants to horse-related charities in 2011, bringing the total awards to nearly $2 million. Tables of six for the Fete Cheval are available as follows: Gold Medal Front Row $5,000; Silver Medal $3,000 and Bronze Medal $2,000.
