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”.
