– Embraer is participating in the 2007 Audi Equestrian Masters, in Brussels, Belgium, October 10-14, at the former maritime Tour & Taxis station. A full-scale mock-up of the Company’s Phenom 300 executive jet is on display at the five-day event, and may be visited by participants and attendees.
The International Jumping of Brussels was reborn, in 2004, as the Audi Equestrian Masters. Under the direction of the legendary horseman Nelson Pessoa and his son, Olympic gold medalist Rodrigo Pessoa, the event has become one of the leading gatherings on the international equestrian calendar and one of Belgium’s major annual sports competitions. Embraer is Rodrigo Pessoa’s official sponsor and one of the show’s partners.
Embraer is also sponsoring the Class 16, Gold League, Table A, 1.50 meter, which will take place on Saturday, October 13. Prizes for the three best riders will be awarded on Saturday evening by Colin Steven, Embraer Vice President Marketing and Sales – Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Executive Aviation.
“It is a great honor for Embraer to be associated with the Audi Equestrian Masters,” said Colin Steven. “This competition has gained a worldwide reputation for excellence and performance, which are also characteristics of our executive jets.”
More than 30,000 people attended last year’s Audi Equestrian Masters. This year, 460 horses and 132 riders, among the best in the world, are participating in the competition. More information is available at www.audi-equestrianmasters.com
