Hello, Phelps Media Group.

February 17, 2010

A few weeks ago I mentioned Phelps Media Group (PMG), a public relations firm that specializes in equine sports.  I want to discuss PMG some more, because if you are interested in the horse industry and social media, this firm is the holy grail.

I am intrigued by PMG because it would offer me my ultimate dream job; it links my passion for equine sports and public relations.

About PMG

PMG launched in 2002 when founder and president, Mason Phelps, secured his first client, the National Horse Show.  He successfully promoted the transition of the National Horse Show, the most prestigious horse show in the US, from Madison Square Garden in New York City to Palm Beach Polo Club in Floridia (PMG headquarters).

Clients hire PMG for its specialized knowledge in the equine industry, ‘out-of-the- box’ thinking, quick media response, proven results, and fresh concepts. PMG’s clients can expect coverage in various media outlets, because the firm produces customized promotional plans, which raise recognition of clients.

PMG Client Roster

To name a few, PMG’s client roster includes: American Invitational (a show jumping event that offers $150,00 in prize money), Dr. Josh Hall DVM (horse performance vet), and Devon Kane (championship rider).  Clients extend to stables, trainers, Olympic riders, equine foundations, and horse and rider matchmaking services.

PMG Staff

The staff at PMG have strong equine and mixed marketing backgrounds.  The team is led by Mason Phelps who holds a list of accolades in the equine world and began branching into public relations through managing equine events.  Other team members- all with equine backgrounds- are corporate communication, financial, writing, photography, and marketing experts.

PMG  Equestrian Sports Network

Phelps Equestrian Sports Network was launched in 2006.  It is a subscription-based social media tool for those seeking equestrian sports news, focused on hunter jumper, dressage, and eventing.  The network represents a hub for equine news, columnists, show results, interviews, and videos.
