The Grand Oaks, an equine inspired resort, is hosting their first recognized Horse Trials on January 19-21, 2018. Minutes from Ocala, this all-inclusive facility is thoroughly prepared to entertain the sport of eventing; containing fiber footing, a breathtaking cross-country course, on-site cottages and a fully stocked Bistro.
Located next to the Villages, with 45 sites for RVs, the resort has ample parking space for all types of vehicles.
Clayton Fredericks is the cross-country course designer, Tyson Rementer is the cross-country course builder, and Shelley Page is the event organizer. All three have proven their work is second to none.
As stated by Eventing Connect, “I would have to give this event a perfect 5-star rating. I already have my entries sent in for their first sanctioned event and if you are in the Florida area, I encourage you to attend as you will not be disappointed”.
If your farm has the space to set up a cross-country schooling course, it can be to your advantage to have cross-country jumps available for schooling purposes. Safety should be the number one priority when designing and building cross-country jumps, and an expert should be consulted whenever possible.
By this time I am sure that you have received the news that the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC) has been canceled. I sincerely apologize for the difficulty this has caused everyone involved. I want to commend the USEA Board of Governors for making an extremely hard decision.
