LEXINGTON, KY - (June 30, 2008) - Essex Classics, a leading innovator of design for today's equestrian needs in riding shirts, has signed on with the United States Hunter Jumper Association as the Title Sponsor of the 2008 USHJA Hunterdon Cup Equitation Class as well as a Product Sponsor for the USHJA International Hunter Derby for the remainder of the 2008/2009 series.

"Essex Classics has been an advertiser with USHJA In Stride Magazine since its inaugural issue in the Spring of 2006. The USHJA is pleased to see Essex Classics expand their support of the Association through these sponsorships," stated William Moroney, USHJA President.

As Title Sponsor of the 2008 USHJA Hunterdon Equitation Cup, Essex Classics will provide support and awards for all the competitors. As a Product Sponsor for the 2008/2009 USHJA International Hunter Derby Series, Essex Classics will be providing the top six riders in each class an Essex Classics shirt as well as product support at the Finals.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the USHJA for both the 2008 Hunterdon Equitation Cup and the International Hunter Derby Series. The junior riders who compete in the Hunterdon Equitation Cup are highly disciplined students who invest tremendous effort in perfecting their riding skills. They are the future generation of our sport who will carry on the classical training principles of their trainers, many of whom were mentored by the legendary George Morris," stated Cathy Sacher, President of Essex Classics.

Cathy went on to say, "We are also very proud to support the USHJA hunter initiative in the creation of the International Hunter Derby Series. This is a pivotal development that will elevate hunters to the stature of the past and imbue the sport with the excitement that it deserves!"

Essex Classics Signature riding shirts use the most luxurious European designed cotton fabrics and feature the most exquisite tailoring details. Among their most popular shirts, Essex Performance Collection riding shirts are constructed from CoolMax, a specialty fabric designed to keep riders cool during competitions.

The USHJA Hunterdon Cup Equitation Class began in 2005 and was developed as a unique equitation class that combines the precision of equitation and handiness of hunters. This year’s class will be held on August 5, 2008 at the USEF Junior Hunter National Championships-East Coast in Saugerties , NY .
