Fifth Anniversary of SSG Gloves Promotion at Thunderbird Show Park

For the fifth year in a row, the SSG Gloves ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion will return to Thunderbird Show Park in Langley, BC, offering a total of $12,000 in bonus money to competitors throughout the 2015 show season.

A $1,000 bonus is on offer to the winner of designated grand prix and hunter events if they are wearing SSG ‘Digital’ style riding gloves.  If the winning rider in any designated event is wearing SSG ‘Digitals’ with the horse head logo clearly visible in all rounds of competition, they will be presented with a bonus cheque in front of the SSG signature jump during the awards presentation.

“It’s almost hard to believe that it has been five years since SSG Gloves brought its ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion to Thunderbird Show Park, and it’s just as popular now, if not more so, than ever,” said Chris Pack, Vice-President of Operations at Thunderbird Show Park.  “SSG’s innovative sponsorship offers our clients a truly unique opportunity to earn bonus prize money in our most sought-after hunter derby and grand prix events.  SSG Gloves and Thunderbird truly are a perfect fit!”
