Giant Steps Charity Classic, 2013

Gucci Giant Steps Benefit

A relatively new highlight on the American show jumping calendar, the Giant Steps Charity Classic was recently held at the Sonoma Horse Park in Petaluma, with the generous support of Gucci, Barclays, and Shaklee.

The five-day event showcased top regional and national equestrians from up-and-coming junior riders to some of our nation’s best. Over $100,000 in prize money was awarded, and each evening boasted a featured competition and event; all of which benefitted the programs at Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian Center. The two title events of the weekend were Barclays Six-Bar & Gala, presented by Gucci, and the $30,000 Shaklee Grand Prix, presented by Gucci on Sunday afternoon.

The gala at the end of the showcase provided an afternoon of easy Sonoma elegance for guests such as Vanessa Getty, Tom Selleck‘s charming daughter Hannah Selleck, and fashion editor Lauren Goodman, with the added sophistication of Gucci’s rigorous equestrian glamour.
