JustWorld brought exciting entertainment and fun activities to Wellington at the JustWorld Kid’s Zone at the Deeridge Derby Weekend from March 1st-5th, continuing to spread awareness for JustWorld’s partner projects in a fun way.
The Inaugural Deeridge Derby Weekend, presented by the National Horse Show Association of America, Ltd. for the benefit of the USHJA Foundation – was an event that showcased the world’s greatest athletes in a setting that couldn’t be more perfect to highlight the grace and beauty of the sport of hunters. Deeridge Farms is considered one of Wellington’s most gorgeous estates and stables. Following last year’s Wellington Masters and this year’s Palm Beach Masters, Deeridge Farms has proved itself to be a perfect setting for a show jumping World Cup qualifier – one of the most prestigious and important show jumping series in the world.
During the weekend, JustWorld International ran an information booth with a twist – a “Pony Kissing Booth.” Participants stopped by to get a photo with the JustWorld mini ponies and learn more about how they can get involved with the organization. On Sunday, March 5th, JustWorld ran their signature Horseless Horse Show, followed by exciting egg hunts throughout the day, where participants won fantastic prizes. Christy’s Bakery also provided some delicious JustWorld treats for all to enjoy.
Thanks to partner show Deeridge Derby Weekend and everyone that stopped by!
