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”.

MACTA Cross-Country Schooling Day a Success Amid COVID-19 Restrictions

The spring eventing season in the Midwest is always a toss-up due to unpredictable weather. Will it rain, will it be sunny, or will it be a snowstorm? No one knows! Mid-America Combined Training Association’s (MACTA) first cross-country schooling of the season was cancelled in March due to extremely muddy footing conditions and by the time our April dates came around, COVID-19 was in full force and we were unable to host our cross-country schooling and schooling show.
