June 17, 2014 By: janwest Category: General

Jacksonville, FL – June 16, 2014 – Last year’s Southeast Medal Finals, launched the Parent Lead Line Class, a fun new class and an opportunity for parents to have their moment in the spotlight in the coliseum at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center. The tongue-in-cheek class returns this year to Southeast Medal Finals, which runs from Sept. 18-21.

Riders are encouraged to enter their parents, with or without their knowledge,  to vie for top honors as well as additional awards in fun categories such as, the Most Confident, Most Likely to Turn Professional, Best Outfit, Most Terrified and Most Medicated.

“This class was truly one of the highlights last year,” said James Lala, from Lala Land Productions, who will manage the 2014 show alongside Stadium Jumping, Inc. “We couldn’t stop laughing. The parents really got into the spirit and came up with some really hilarious costumes.”

Parent Lead Line is open to parents of exhibitors.  Competitors must lead their parent on horseback. Parents must wear an approved helmet and suitable shoes. Creativity is encouraged.  All proceeds generated from this class will be donated to a soon-to-be-named charity.

Southeast Medal Finals Parent Lead Line Class will be held on Saturday, September 20, following the completion of round one of the Phelps Media Group Southeast Medal Finals.

In addition to the Parent Lead Line Class, highlights of the Southeast Medal Finals line-up include the $25,000 Jacksonville Grand Prix the Phelps Media Group Southeast Junior Medal and the ASPCA Maclay Regionals.
