Lexington,Kentucky– The SSG Riding Gloves ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion, offering $30,000 in bonus money, will be offered at the 2012 Kentucky Horse Shows held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.  Riders wearing SSG ‘Digital’ Riding Gloves with the SSG horse head logo clearly visible during all rounds of competition in designated events are eligible for the bonus.

The first show to feature the SSG Riding Gloves ‘Go Clean for the Green’ bonus promotion will be the Kentucky Spring Horse Show CSI3* scheduled for May 9-13, 2012.  The designated SSG Gloves classes will be Friday’s $50,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic, Sunday’s $10,000 Junior Jumper Classic, and Sunday’s $75,000 Commonwealth Grand Prix.  Both of the grand prix classes held during the Kentucky Spring Horse Show are part of the 2012 U.S. Show Jumping Team Observation Events.

The following week of competition, the Kentucky Spring Classic CSI2* from May 16-20, features the SSG ‘Go Clean for the Green’ bonus promotion for Thursday’s $32,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic, Saturday’s $75,000 Mary Rena Murphy Grand Prix sponsored by Audi of Lexington, and Sunday’s $10,000 Junior Jumper Classic.

“The SSG ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion has become very popular in Wellington over the past two seasons, and we are looking forward to expanding the program to Kentucky,” said Ed James, President of SSG Gloves.  “With six weeks of top competition in Kentucky, which allows any bonus money not awarded to carry forward to the next show, we hope to build the same level of momentum and popularity that we have experienced in Florida.”
