Wellington, FL – March 18, 2010 — Eight top equestrians will go head to head in the exciting $25,000 Puissance class scheduled for the Stadium at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center on Friday night.

With the huge throng expected to attend the Akon concert that follows the Puissance, organizers feel that this could be one of the largest crowds to ever witness this exciting show jumping event.

The stage is already constructed at the Stadium in what promised to be a gorgeous setting for the top show jumping action and the fabulous music scheduled for tomorrow night as part of this dynamic dual performance event.

The top riders that have entered for Friday night’s test of horse power are McLain Ward, Pablo Barrios, Charlie Jayne, Ali Nilforushan, Cayce Hodges, Henri Kovacs and Maarten Huygens.

The doors for this evening of excitement open at 7:00 p.m. The box office will be available on site starting at 5:00 p.m.

The $25,000 Puissance is scheduled to lift-off at 7:30 p.m.

Once the show jumping is complete, the ring will be cleared and the music will begin with 12 year-old, up and coming teen rock talent, Justin Carlos whose show begins at 8:30 p.m. Andrew Knowles will perform thirty minutes later at 9:00 p.m., and the star of the show, Akon, will take the stage at 9:30 p.m.

With worldwide sales of over 7 million albums, certified gold and platinum status in over 23 countries and hundreds of guest appearances (including a collaboration with Michael Jackson), Akon is an exciting way to kick off what will be a series of concert events at the Palm Beach Equestrian Center.

A very limited number of box seats are still available and may be purchased at the door.

A special After Party will be held as well, the location to be announced at the concert.
