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”.

Believing in the Horse Nobody Believed In: Cooley Quicksilver

This story first appeared in the August 2022 issue of Sidelines Magazine.

I have had many young horses in my time, and one thing I’ve learned is that it’s rarely the perfect, easy baby that becomes the next superstar. In fact, I’ve always considered it a positive to have the well-behaved youngster throw a little bit of attitude my way, as I believe that it takes fight to become a great event horse.
