Look no further than Barnstaple South’s Jackpot Schooling Shows. Located in Morriston, Florida next to HITS Ocala. Barnstaple South is a new, state-of-the-art schooling and event venue. Created by Derek Strine, Barnstaple South stretches across 80 acres of manicured land. Since the grand opening in 2019, the venue has hosted various clinics and seminars including the USEA Educational Symposium, FEH and YEH qualifying events, and USEA sanctioned events from Beginner Novice through Preliminary divisions.
This year, Barnstaple South invites riders to their Fall Jackpot Schooling Show Series. At each schooling show, riders have the opportunity to clinic with our dressage judge on Day One and perform your test in front of them the following day in the show. Each dressage test is videoed with judge’s commentary thanks to Richard Equine Video. Jackpot! Learn more here.
Dressage and Show Jumping will use the beautifully maintained fiber arenas at HITS Ocala. The cross-country course will be numbered, flagged, and open for schooling the week prior. New additions to the cross country course include everything from logs, coffins, banks, ditches, and a beautiful water jump. The course has everything you need. Mark your calendars for the dates of Barnstaple South Jackpot Schooling Shows:
In addition to the video and commentary of your dressage test, there will be Show Jumping and Cross Country Course walks with local professionals prior to the day of the show. Come join us at Barnstaple South for the Event Prep Party where everyone will be invited to assist in setting up for the event, with pizza of course! Volunteers will earn a Cross Country Schooling Pass, credit towards a show entry, Barnstaple South logo wear, and more! Jackpot!
Barnstaple South’s Jackpot Schooling Show Series is really like hitting the jackpot! Come roll the dice and go home with videography and an armful of prizes! See you there!
