Wellington, FL – January 2, 2014 – Laura Fetterman opened her Champion Equine Insurance agency three years ago with great success and positive feedback from the equestrian community and will continue to support the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival (FTI WEF) as sponsor of the Champion Equine Insurance Hunter & Jumper Style Awards this year.

Going into their fourth year as a sponsor, Champion Equine Insurance is pleased to continue supporting the equine owners and riders by presenting style awards to both hunters and jumpers. One hunter and one jumper award will be presented each week in selected classes to be determined throughout the 12 weeks of the FTI WEF circuit.

The Hunter Style Award is to be awarded to the hunter whose style most exemplifies a show hunter based on form, movement and way of going.

The Jumper Style Award is to be awarded to the jumper whose style best exemplifies a show jumper based on scope, rideability, technique and competitive spirit.
