A new addition to the 2021 eventing calendar, the Event at TerraNova has a powerhouse of a team behind their organizational efforts in order to make their inaugural year a slam dunk for competitors. TerraNova started as a personal barn with the ambitions of building a lesson and training program, but upon recognizing the need for horse trials outside of the Ocala area, Hannah Herrig Ketelboeter and her husband Zach decided to take the plunge.
